Pork Mushroom Risotto might sound fancy, but it’s very easy to make and has the down home flavor of rice and gravy! Thanks so much to Smithfield for sponsoring this recipe.
Hi, friends! I can hardly wait to tell you about this new risotto recipe because my family absolutely loved it! You may know that my love for rice and gravy goes way back, and this meal is basically dressed up rice and gravy with pork and mushrooms. HEAVEN!
I made this easy dinner with a Smithfield Steakhouse Mushroom Marinated Fresh Pork Loin Filet. Smithfield fresh pork never disappoints in flavor or tenderness, and it was a perfect addition to this recipe! (If you can’t find the steakhouse mushroom pork loin at a store near you, just choose another of their savory flavors!)
Of course I wanted even MORE mushroom flavor (I always do!), so I also added sliced baby Bella mushrooms along with diced onion.
That’s really all there is to this recipe: Rice, fresh pork, mushrooms, onion, beef broth, butter, and a little milk and parmesan cheese. Since the pork is already marinated, it brings so much rich flavor to the dish that you don’t need any other seasonings.
You may have heard that risotto is difficult or time-consuming to make, but I promise it’s not! I made this dish in just about 30 minutes. Here’s a video of how to do it:

Not only is this meal easy to prepare, it’s also very affordable. I was surprised that just one cup of rice was enough to feed my family of four, but risotto is very filling! This recipe can easily feed 4-5 people with a vegetable on the side. If you are making dinner for two, risotto reheats very well too! Just stir in a splash of water to the leftovers before reheating to bring back the creamy consistency.
If you’d like to make this a one-pot meal, you could also add in chopped asparagus, broccoli florets, or another vegetable with the pork and mushrooms. Let me know in the comments how you make your perfect pot of pork risotto!
