The braised short ribs are intense. There are over 14 ingredients, and the preparation time takes hours upon hours.

As an alternative, buy a premade beef patty and grill it up with your own bacon and other fixings: 12 minutes.

3. Amish Friendship Bread: 10 Days / Via

Friendship bread is particularly time consuming because of the communal aspect of making the bread. For 10 days, the ingredients are passed around to create the dough.

5. Mama's Pasta Sauce: 24 Hours

Not only does this recipe take 24 hours, you need to stir the sauce every 15 – 30 minutes to prevent burning on the bottom of the pot. Ain't nobody got time for that.

As an alternative, buy pre-made sauce at the grocery store and spice it up with your own veggies and spices, like basil and garlic.

As an alternative, buy a rotisserie chicken to speed up the process. Add your own buffalo sauce and ranch, and boom! You're ready to go in less than a 1/2 hour.
