First, preheat steak cooking method of choice, I used my grill. About 375 degrees... Next get your lobster, this is a bag of langistino from Costco, but whatever you have is great! Fresh or frozen.
If frozen, add to a bowl and fill with cold water
Like so, let it thaw 10-15 minutes and drain, then run the lobster in a strainer with water to finish the job.
The amount of chicken stock will vary, really it can differ from one day to another. I used all 48 oz and another cup from another box... Total 56 oz
Add the stock to a pan, and heat to a summer, then reduce heat to low/med to keep warm
Chop your onion
And your garlic
Get a couple tablespoons of oil nice and hot
Add onion to oil and cook, 2-3 minutes
Add garlic and cook another 2-3 minutes
Get your rice, 2 cups ready
And toss it into the onion and garlic, stirring another 2-3 minutes.
Take your wine! Add a cup to the rice, and refrigerate OR drink the rest!
Stir the wine in and let it reduce until the wine is basically all gone I also added the measured salt and pepper as well
Like so, wine is all gone, alcohol burned off and only the great flavors of the wine! From here on out, don't worry if while cooking the rice sticks a bit to the pan, it will deglaze with the stock
Add the stock, one ladle at a time and stir, and stir! Until the liquid absorbs then add another ladle full
Stir and stir! Repeat the process! Stock and stir!
The steak is simple, salt and pepper both sides, all the flavor you need!
Put them on the grill or whatever your cooking method is. These guys went 3-4 minutes each side and came out medium
Please if grilling add meat, put the lid on, and leave it until you need to flip it, only flip it once put the lid back on and finish the last couple minutes, remove and let meat rest 5-10 min
While the meat rests add a tablespoon of butter and a tablespoon or so of oil to a pan and get hot.
Add you lobster and heat through, it will release some water from within and have a nice sea flavor
See the liquid has increased! Add it all to the risotto mixture
And stir also add in your dry herbs and mix well. At this point your risotto should be about done. You want it creamy and still a little firm, but not undercooked.
A look at the herbs
The risotto is cooked here, but you want to add 2 tablespoons of butter and mix
Add your cheese to the risotto
Like so and mix
Here is a look at everything combined
