How to make it
- In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a simmer over medium-high heat; reduce heat, but keep the stock hot.
- In a large saucepan, melt half the butter in the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, celery and carrot and cook until the onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes.
- Add the ground beef and cook about 3 minutes longer, until the meat begins to brown.
- Add 1 cup chicken broth, the chicken livers, tomato paste, wine, pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for 10 minutes.
- Add the rice and return to a simmer. Cook, stirring constantly, until the liquid has been absorbed.
- Stir the remaining hot broth into the risotto 1/2 cup at a time, making sure the previous addition has been absorbed before adding more.
- Cook until the rice is al dente, about 25-30 minutes.
- Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter; cover and let sit for a few minutes.
- Serve warm with grated Parmesan sprinkled on top of each serving.
