Is she intact? I'm wondering if she might have something hormonal going on. Bitches that are in heat or pregnant (including "false pregnancies," where their hormones are telling them they're pregnant when they're really not) may be moody/picky and exhibit traits they normally don't. While neutered dogs usually don't get as hormonal, I have heard of *rare* cases of neutered bitches still having mood fluxes like intact ones.
Sounds like she could be picky... you know her better than we do. I hope you guys get this figured out.

If that's the time she has always eaten in the past, and she's used to that I would stick with it. She will eat eventually, so I would keep on as usual. If you do decide to change up feeding times, just be sure she has time to digest for around 45 minutes to an hour before and after eating without getting all wound up, if that makes sense. I personally feed mine later in the evening when I know they are inside, and settling down. It just seems to help keep from disrupting the digestive system.

Yeah she's definitely stubborn. She used to do back flips at meal time now it's just whatever to her. She'll eat whatever I give to her as rmb but the past few days she won't eat any boneless meat I'll leave it down for 15 and it'll still be there so I'll pick it up and she won't get anything from me. Should I switch up her eating times I usually feed her around 6pm after our day is done should I do it early so she goes about her day on a full stomach?
Ideally dogs shouldn't go around on a full stomach. A raw diet provides plenty of available energy so a late evening meal is not a problem for supplying the dog with energy.

Offer something boneless each day until she eats it. She will eventually. All healthy dogs will always eat at some point. They won't starve themselves. Boneless is the biggest part of a raw diet, so she needs to learn to eat it too. I know its not ideal, but what about starting her on boneless with some ground, then slowly start adding in boneless chunks as she starts eating the groung well? Maybe that could be an introduction to boneless for her.

Very weird predicament. We're it my dog (who would eat his bowl were it not stainless steel) I'd assume something was off.
But doesn't sound like that's the case?
Have you tried feeding the boneless meats either frozen or semi-frozen to change the texture? Given the dog will eat a "harder" bone-in meal, I would try offering frozen if you haven't already.
