4.9 from 10 reviews



For the short ribs

  • 4 pounds Beef Short Ribs
  • 1.5 cups Paleo Chef Mpale Mustard Sauce
  • ½ cup broth (chicken, vegetable, beef – whatever you can find without sugar)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

For the burgers

  • 1.5 pounds Grass Fed Ground Beef
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ yellow onion, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 78 pieces of bacon
  • extra Paleo Chef Maple Mustard Sauce to top burgers


  1. Place short ribs in the crockpot. Add broth to the crockpot.
  2. Top short ribs with the maple mustard sauce. Then with garlic cloves and salt and pepper.
  3. Place on low for 8-10 hours.
  4. When the short ribs are done cooking, preheat oven to 405 degrees and place bacon on a baking sheet. Cook for 10-12 minutes or until bacon is crispy.
  5. Once short ribs are done cooking, use a fork to shred the ribs in a separate bowl, removing some of the excess fat.
  6. Then add the ingredients for the burgers into the bowl: ground beef, yellow onion, garlic cloves, and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  7. For the ingredients into burger sized patties.
  8. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once pan is hot, add your burgers to the pan, making sure not to crowd the pan. I did my burgers in two batches to make sure not to crowd it. Cook on both sides for 4-5 minutes.
  9. Once bacon is done cooking and burgers are done as well, top bacon on the burgers and pour on a bit of the maple mustard sauce.
  10. Eat up. Add some greens to it, so it’s healthier for you. Greens are healthy. Duh.
