Rice not risotto

Rice but not risotto

I will need to explain about the title.

Visiting Italy, inevitably there is risotto. You may or may not eat it, but you get inspired.

So I told myself that I should make rice with more than water.  This rice here is a homage to my young and less abundant childhood. This version is not risotto. So if by any chance the Italians read this blog will not feel violated.

minced pork, 1/2 pound,
onion, one, diced
caper, one tea spoonful
shitake mushroom, 5 head, sliced
cooking oil, salt pepper
cooking wine, 2 table spoonful
rice, 2 cups

Heat pot,
Add cooking oil, caper, onion, mushroom and minced pork and cooking wine to cook for 10 minutes,
add rice to the stir fry to cook another 5 minutes or so, keep stiring
Add 3 cups of water,
bring to boil,
slow down fire to simmer to 20 minutes.

There is no strict rule in this rice cooking. Meat, garlic, onion or not, it is all personal preference. One pot fixing the whole family, cheap, easy and stuffing.
