Step 3: Add Wine and Cooking Liquid

Add wine first to allow the alcohol to cook out. Stir the rice as you add the wine to help coax the starch out of the grain. Slowly add hot cooking liquid. Allow only a veil of liquid to cover the grain. Stir constantly until liquid is absorbed.

  • Tip: We recommend using low-sodium store-bought broth, which will add flavor without making the dish too salty. See our favorites.
