tender beef shortribs with truffled polenta

Short ribs aren't the kind you need to pick up and gnaw on; they're the kind that are fall-apart tender. These are marinated in red wine and then slowly braised to coax every bit of flavor out of them. They come with a creamy polenta-scented porcini mushrooms and black truffle. All that and some sweet baby carrots with a red wine sauce for drizzling as you like.

What People Are Saying

2 Stars
Potatoes were terrible, meat was poor quality/taste
2 Stars
Doesn't look anything like the picture. At least the carrots were not the same.
3 Stars
I must have read this wrong because I was expecting mashed potatoes and got some kind of polenta that did not pair well.
4 Stars
Good, but microwave the carrots separately, for less time. Otherwise they get badly overcooked.
3 Stars
The beef and carrots were excellent, the polenta I didn't care for.
4 Stars
Excellent! Could have had a little more spice of some kind.
5 Stars

What once was once a nice dish became a sad dinner, past its sell-by date.

Always one of my favorites!

Absolutely excellent!

Short ribs were amazingly flavorful! Along with the polenta they were quite a memorable meal.
2 Stars
Beef short ribs were dry, polenta gelatinous-- practically solid! Two stars for the carrots and average (slightly watery) sauce.
5 Stars
My favorite munchery dish!!! It's better than short ribs I've gotten at many restaurants
5 Stars
3 tiny baby carrots brought it to 4 stars. Seriously small. The picture showed six, which seemed more reasonable. These looked line carrot sticks. Really??
4 Stars
Beef was really tender and the sauce was tasty. Polenta was okay. Roasted carrots were fine.

Ribs good. The cornmeal was kinda slimey and inedible. Not sure I'd order again!

The meat, polenta and carrots were great, the sauce a little bland. Solid meal all around, just not a favorite.

I didn't like the sauce it came with. The meat was cooked perfectly but need a sauce with flavor.

Meat portions were kind of overwhelmingly large, but the rest was good.

The meal was great. I think the meat may have been overly seasoned.

The only negative was that the sauce was too salty. Not healthy for salt restricted diet. Protein was delicious! Need a little more polenta. Thank you.

Simply delicious.
4 Stars
Not into the polenta
3 Stars
Tender if fatty meat. The broth that would have made the meat and polenta tasty had the flavor of salty canned broth. Unremarkable entree. Nice crunch whole carrots.
5 Stars
BF ordered tonight and is usually very critical. Said he was pleasantly surprised: polenta was really good, sauce was tasty, carrots were fresh, ribs just shred apart w a fork like you'd expect. Overall delicious meal.
5 Stars

4 Stars

5 Stars
This was amazing, thank you so much!
5 Stars
Delicious! Perfectly cooked..flavours superb..one of the best dishes yet! A little weak..a lot of rice and cucumber..healthy but disappointing.the sushi selection. was very fresh...
3 Stars
The beef was pretty good (but a bit fatty as some others have said). The polenta wasn't so great - too many raw-ish greens. Should have been smoother. Potatoes would have been a better side.
5 Stars
Tasted amazing, looked iffy. The polenta would be better in a different shape so it heats all the way through
4 Stars
Great flavor
3 Stars
Fatty meat needed a lot of trimming.
3 Stars
Very good. Can you make it less salty?
4 Stars
Tasted and looked like pot roast, not short ribs.
1 Stars
Terrible cut... The flavors were great but one of my two cuts of meat was completely fat. Whoever was cutting these was barely looking. I had to go out after because I was still hungry.
5 Stars
Delicious! I recommend preparing in oven for twice recommended time. Short ribs melted in my mouth.
5 Stars
This is perfection! I try not to eat beef, but when I do, it's either one of your or Steven Levine's dishes!
3 Stars
Ribs were tender and yummy. The polenta did not go well with the ribs. Maybe mashed potatoes next time?
3 Stars
The meat was more like slices of pot roast than short rib. Also the gravy was bland and light. Did not look like the photo which was rich-looking and dark. Also a bit dry. But the polenta and carrots were tasty. In general ok.
4 Stars
Ribs were very tender, just needs a bit more flavor.
5 Stars
Yum!
1 Stars
70% fat. Inedible. Extremely disappointing.
3 Stars
Polenta carrots and the sauce were incredible. The short ribs felt dry despite putting tons of sauce and tasted bland
3 Stars
Carrots were very firm. Meat was dry even with the juice. Polenta was delicious.
4 Stars
Good portions and good flavor.
3 Stars
Thought the polenta and carrots had more flavor than the short ribs, which were very tender but could've used a bit more seasoning.
5 Stars
Really nice hearty meal. The meat was still tender, even after being in the microwave. My only complaint is that the polenta heated more slowly than the meat, so I had to take it apart & reheat before serving. Would order again!
5 Stars
Consistent favorite. A really rich, flavorful, comforting dish.
3 Stars
Tender, but very fatty pieces of meat and lacking flavor.
3 Stars

This was more like pot roast with a thin sauce. The polenta was full of lumps containing undercooked cornmeal. But the carrots were super carroty!
5 Stars
This dish was amazing. The meat was cooked to falling apart, which I love!! It was so delicious, I had it for breakfast the next morning too.
5 Stars

PERFECTION. Everything in this dish was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing.
5 Stars
The best Munchery dish I have had!! The meat was so tender I didn't need a knife. There was more than I expected so I had to set aside some of it for lunch the next day. It seems like every steak dish I've had has been top notch so far! :)
5 Stars
Very flavorful and tender. Will order again!!

A good dish. Some of the meat a little fatty and the polenta a little gluey, carrots were great.
4 Stars
Rib is well cooked, very soft. A little bit bland to my taste.
5 Stars
Oh my god. Maybe it's just because this was the first thing I ever ordered, but this was incredible. I completely forgot about the really awesome glass of wine I poured and gobbled this up nonstop in about 5 minutes.
4 Stars
Delicious
