Preheat Cuisinart™ Electric Skillet to 300°F. Add olive oil and butter; stir to coat skillet. When foam subsides, sauté orzo until lightly toasted, about 3 minutes; add onion, celery, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir 1 minute; add rice and stir to combine. Add stock and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer; cook until rice is tender and all the liquid has evaporated, about 15 minutes. Stir, turn off heat, cover and let rest for 5 minutes. To serve, garnish with parsley
