My friend made this last week and reported that it turned out delicious, so I had to give it a try! The original recipe below serves 4, so I increased the meat to 3lbs boneless short ribs (6 pieces) and about 5lbs of sweet potatoes to get a couple extra meals out of this, and a lot more sweet potato mash. This recipe does call for using a Dutch oven, but I guarantee you can also make the recipe as-is, but when it's time to put the ribs in the oven, just throw them in the crockpot on low for 8 hours. I cannot give a fair assessment on the Chipotle Smashed Sweet Potatoes since I did not use the chipotle in adobo sauce or add ghee. I don't enjoy real spicy food and I didn't feel like I would be able to find a paleo option at the store. I did include a link below if you are up for making your own Paleo Chipotle Adobo Sauce though. Instead, I just added 1 tsp of smoked paprika (you can also used chipotle powder if you have that, which I did not). I left out the ghee because the ribs have enough fat for the meal itself, and you know sometimes less is more. I thought my version of the sweet potato mash turned out smoky and delicious despite leaving out those two ingredients. The ribs also turned out amazing and it was super easy to make everything. If you want to spice up your meal prep or dinner one week, I recommend giving this one a try!

Beef Short Ribs
*Note: You can also use bone-in short ribs but you may need closer to 3 pounds since the bone adds weight. Original recipe posted that they ordered their meat from Butcher Box, I bought it from Wegman's.
