What to make with Prime boneless beef short ribs?

So I have 2 1/2 pounds of incredibly marbeled Prime boneless beef short ribs? I am thinking of making a carbonnade bbut wonder if anyone has any other suggestions?
If I make a carbonnade I plan to cut the meat into large chunks and brown it. Caramalize a few large onions and add. A head of garlic, fresh ground coriander, juniper berries, cardomon, pepper, etc. A half cup of grade B maple syrup. A 25 oz bottle of Belgian dark brown ale "Nostradamus". And some root veggies such as rutabaga, parsnip, turnip, and carrot. Then let simmer until very tender. Serve with buttered egg noodles or homemade spaetzle on the side.
Never done it myself, but I'd look into Korean "bbq" using a stovetop griddle or skillet. You'd need to thinly slice the meat. Serve with lettuce leaf wraps, with rice, bean or bean-and-chili paste. This would be a casual meal as you'd have to hang out over the stove, but that could be fun.
I think that is an awful lot of maple syrup to be adding to a small stewpot. Carbonnade is often quite sweet from the sugar in the onions and the beer. The last time I made short ribs I used 10 pds. (bone-in) and 1/2 of honey and was still too sweet.
If you have it you might want to take a look at Child's MOFC Carbonnade recipe.
