Large Oven-Proof Pan
Garlic Press


Get Frying

Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a full kettle. 

Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, wide-bottomed ovenproof pan on medium heat. TIP: If you don't have an ovenproof pan, use a normal pan and transfer to an ovenproof dish before baking.

Once hot, add the beef mince and fry until browned, 4-5 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.

Garlic Time

Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the chives (use scissors if easier).

When the mince has browned, drain and discard any excess fat. Season with salt and pepper. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.

Bake your Risotto

Add the risotto rice, tomato puree and garlic to the beef. Stir and cook until the edges of the rice are translucent, 1-2 mins.

Stir in the boiled water for the risotto (see pantry for amount), chicken stock paste and gochujang. Bring back up to the boil, then pop a lid on the pan (or cover with foil).

Bake on the middle shelf of your oven until the rice is cooked and the water has been absorbed, 25-30 mins.

Add the Peas

When the risotto is cooked, remove it from the oven and stir in the peas until piping hot, 1 min.

Finishing Touches

Stir the butter (see pantry for amount), honey and hard Italian style cheese through the risotto. TIP: If your honey has hardened, put the sachet in a bowl of hot water for 1 min to loosen.

Season to taste with salt and pepper if needed. TIP: Add a splash of water to loosen the risotto if needed.

Serve Up

Share your gochujang risotto between your serving bowls.

Sprinkle over the chives to finish.
