Mamas Mashed Potatoes

BBQ Beef Short Ribs


  • 5 pounds of Idaho potatoes (well peeled)
  • 2 sticks of butter (look don’t argue with Mama)
  • ½ tablespoon garlic salt
  • ½ tablespoon fine ground black pepper
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • ½ cup cream


Step 1

Peel the potatoes and cut them into chunks then boil them until fork tender

Step 2

Drain the potatoes well then transfer to a bowl much larger than the potatoes **pro tip** do this quickly while they are still warm

Step 3

Take the butter, cream, sour cream, salt, and pepper and mix in with the potatoes

Step 4

Take a hand mixer or potato masher (if you have the motorized hand mixers it will be a lot easier) but at the end of the day just mash/beat these potatoes until they are smooth smooth smooth.

Step 5

When you serve the potatoes take 1 “pat” of butter and stick it right in the middle cause it looks delicious while it melts. If you are some sort of lizard person monster put a random piece of parsley on top of the potatoes for no good reason.

Serves 4-6

Wine Pairing : Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Malbec
