Nick Massie of PaleoNick.com brings us slow-cooked ribs and sweet potatoes. Watch as he takes a meat-and-potatoes combo and makes it Zone-worthy.

“Three-block portions that are tough to beat,” Massie says. “It’s the meal that I call ‘ribs and sweets.’”

Start by preparing the ribs because they’ll take the longest to cook. Massie bottles his own rub—Paleo Nick’s Super Radical Rib Rub—but he’s got a spice recipe for dressing the ribs if you don’t have his Rib Rub.

Next come the sweet potatoes, and lastly the Paleo Q sauce.

“It’d be easy to say that the ribs are the best part ’cause they have that Radical Rib Rub on them,” Massie says, “but I’m gonna argue that the Paleo Q sauce is the best.”

Massie notes that the dish was popular with fans at the 2014 Reebok CrossFit Games, so he’s sure you’ll love it.
