If you’ve played Final Fantasy XV, you know the food looks absolutely fantastic. Square Enix knows this, too, and they joined up with the folks at Tastemade to make the video you see below. That’s right, they’ve made a recipe for one of the dishes in the game and recorded the process for the world to see.
Gosh, I hope they put out more of these.
Here’s the official recipe for Braised Short Rib & Veggie Stew
This all comes from the video’s description on YouTube.
2 pounds boneless beef short ribs , cut into 2 inch pieces
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, peeled and diced small
2 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup of dry Red Wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel
1 cup of Beef Broth
1 cup of canned whole peeled tomatoes
4 sprigs of thyme
1 bunch of baby carrots, cleaned, cut in 1-inch pieces
6 small cipollini onions, peeled
½ lb. peewee potatoes, cut into wedges
½ lb. brussels sprouts, cleaned
Season short ribs with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Heat a large dutch-oven and sear short-rib until golden brown on each side. Remove to a plate, and add onion, garlic, and butter to pan, cooking until softened. Sprinkle in flour, stirring to combine.
Pour in wine and bring to a boil, scraping up caramelized bits from the bottom of the pan.
Stir in remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, pop the lid on and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about an hour and a half or until short ribs and veggies are fork tender.
This recipe won’t be too expensive if you already own stuff like garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. Those things should already be in your kitchen, anyways. Hit a farmer’s market to save on the veggies, too. Where you’ll want to spend some solid money is the short ribs. Tough and cheap beef can ruin a stew, fast.
I know what we’re eating tonight.
