Instant Pot Pear Gorgonzola Rose Risotto

Risotto is so easy to make in the Instant Pot and even better with the addition of pears and gorgonzola! Using rose gives it even more flavor, but white wine works, too.


– 4 tbsp butter, divided – 1 shallot, minced – 2 pears, peeled, cored, and diced into 1/2 inch cubes – 2 cups arborio rice – 1/2 cup dry rose wine – 3 1/2 cups chicken stock – 1/2 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese – 1/2 tsp freshly grated black pepper – Chopped walnuts for garnish, optional

Turn on the saute function on your Instant Pot. Add 2 tbsp of butter. Add the shallots and cook for 2 minutes. Add the pears and cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Add the remaining butter and arborio rice and cook stirring regularly until a few grains of rice start to turn golden (3-5 minutes).

Add the rose wine and chicken stock. Manually set the Instant Pot to cook for 6 minutes. Once finished, use the quick release.

Stir risotto for about 30 seconds. If there's more liquid to be absorbed, turn on the saute function and simmer until it reaches the correct consistency (not soupy).

Turn off the Instant Pot. Stir in gorgonzola cheese and black pepper until melted and creamy.

Serve as a main dish or side and garnish with walnuts.
