  1. Melt2 Tbsps butter in a large sauce pan that will be large enough to hold the finished dish.
  2. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Add the rice and cook another 3 minutes or so til rice is coated with butter and a bit toasty.
  3. Add the wine and stir until it evaporates and/or is absorbed by the rice. This will take only a couple of minutes.
