Melt 21/2 tablespoons of the butter in a saucepan, add sliced onion, cover and cook slowly until soft but not brown.
Stir in rice and fry for a few minutes, or until it looks transparent.
Season with salt and pepper and pour in 2 cups stock.
Bring to a boil, cover tightly and bake in heated oven for 20-22 minutes, or until rice grains are tender and stock has been absorbed.
If rice dries, before it is cooked add more stock.
When cooked, stir in remain- ing butter with a fork.
Melt the 1 tablespoon butter in a pan, add drained mushrooms and lemon juice.
Toss over a brisk heat for 2 minutes, then stir in the tuna and pimiento with a fork.
Season and cook 2 minutes longer.
When ready to serve, put rice mixture into a ring mold and press lightly with the back of a spoon to make rice hold together.
Turn mold out on a serving dish and fill center with tuna mixture.
