Steak & Baby Bella Mushroom Risotto

O my, what a busy week that was, weekend flew by and it is Monday again. All that homework, kids after school activities are more and more demanding each day. Anyway it is close to lunch time and I bought wonderful Arborio rice so you can guess risotto for the lunch:)
Today I will make risotto with steak and fresh baby bella mushroom.
I don’t have any parmesan in my fridge so I will substitute with mozzarella, hope parmesan want mind:)

Risotto with steak and baby bella mushrooms


1 lb grilling steaks (such as ribeye, strip, or top sirloin), cut in cubes
1 packet fresh baby bella mushrooms, sliced
1 red onion, chopped
garlic cloves, few
1 cup Arborio rice
1 reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped
