My favorite women: My wife, my mother, my daughters, my sisters and Julia Child! Here I humbly pay homage to one of her most famed dishes. A rich red wine braised beef stew cooked with mushrooms, bacon, carrots and pearl onions. Served with egg noodles tossed with butter and parsley. I'm not worthy...

Dry and little flavor. I was disappointed

Nice dish

Mediocre meal. Not worth the price.
4 Stars
Pretty good the first night. Portion is too large for one meal, but not enough for two meals. Second night it was too dry to eat. Bright vegetable, like tomatoes, would have helped.
4 Stars
Always enjoy this one. A little more sauce would bring it to 5 stars. When you heat it in the oven, it just needs a little more sauciness, but overall very tasty.
2 Stars
Very dry.
4 Stars
Delicious! Please include a little more gravy with the order.
3 Stars
Merely fine, by which I mean it was disappointing. I really liked the buttered parsley noodles (which btw took 1.5 mins to warm, not 3-5 on the package). The beef was plain and dry and the sauce didn't save it because the sauce didn't stick.
3 Stars
The beef was too dry and there was not enough sauce to help that and also have enough to put it on the noodles.
2 Stars
This was not JC beef stew as advertised. The beef was cooked separately from the sauce? This entree was a miss for us. We've had a few entrees that were just 'ok.' Disappointing.
3 Stars
Small size of portions.
2 Stars
Beef was very dry
1 Stars
Beef dry/ not enough flavor
4 Stars
The meat was really tender and flavorful, all the flavors worked well together. Could have used a few more onions and carrots to balance it all out though.
2 Stars
Not enough sauce at all! Otherwise flavors were great, but without the sauce it is dry.
5 Stars
Loved this dish!!!
3 Stars
Meal was very dry given the tiny container of sauce! Please provide a larger portion next time.
2 Stars
Beef was very dry and stringy (half of it went to the dogs after, it was so stringy). You really need two containers of sauce for this to make the dish more juicy. Otherwise, taste was ok.
3 Stars
A bit dry this time. Please more sauce next time.
2 Stars
Obviously it wasn't fresh, which is understandable, but the taste then was more like reheating leftovers. The portion size was misleading in next to its shelf photo, so it was as filling.
2 Stars
What happened, Chef Levine? Tonight's boeuf bourguignon was extremely tough and was bland. We've had this dish before and loved it, but it was very unsatisfying tonight. We've recommended this dish to friends and now feel bad for doing so!
2 Stars
It resembled a dinner you'd get on an airline 20 years ago, in coach. The beef was dry, the pasta tasteless and the sauce dull. The carrots and onions helped. I don't see Julia Childs serving this.
3 Stars
beef was a little dry and it seems like it needs more of the sauce when reheating.
5 Stars
One of the best dishes I’ve had so far. Lots of tender meat, three yummy carrots, with a small side of pasta. : ) Filling meal!
2 Stars
Portions of pasta and veggies are too small compared to the meat. The meat is dry, but soft. Would not order again.
3 Stars
I have really enjoyed my munchery meals so I have a high standard I guess the meal was good but the meat was a bit over done. You could see it even before heating. So not bad but the prior meals were so good
1 Stars
This was so disappointing. It looked and tasted old and I didn't finish. There was also no seasoning on anything and I had to salt to eat at all. So sorry because the reviews were good. Won't order again.
5 Stars
Delicious. Knife cut through meat like butter. The sauce was tasty. The surprise was the carrots. So sweet and wonderful. We would love a side dish of just the carrots.
4 Stars
Although this is a classic comfort food it didn't feel ultra heavy & rich (which is a good thing in my book). Only thing I'd love to see are more carrots & mushrooms in the dish.
2 Stars
A little disappointed with this one. There was not enough sauce, and the beef ended up being way too lean and dry. Maybe would have been better if it was mixed together instead of the sauce being in a separate little container.
5 Stars
Delicious! Very plentiful portion...and the beef was very tasty even without the sauce. LOVED it!!!
4 Stars
This was a tasty classic dish. It was exactly what I was expecting. My only criticism is there wasn't very much gravy.
4 Stars
Julia Child would be proud of this dish. Sadly, each time I order it, the portions get smaller and smaller
4 Stars
Good favor but Julia would have been disappointed about the dryness of the beef - more sauce please.
3 Stars
Meat was a little dry and there were no mushrooms. Sauce was not enough to mix with meat and noddles.
2 Stars
flavorful but the beef was very tough, couldn't eat half of it. :(
3 Stars
Not enough sauce - the beef lacked real flavor. Add more onions and garlic!
5 Stars
Chef Levine's interpretation of this dish is a favorite. All components are fantastic right down to the carrots. This is a consistent winner and we order it often when it's offered on the menu.
3 Stars
This was OK. Not much better than the beef stew at the Whole Foods. It was fine, but not up to Munchery standards.
1 Stars
Ordinarily I am a fan of Chef Levine, but found this dish a total miss: The meat was stringy and tough so I threw it out, the pasta had a weird after-taste, and only the veggies were edible. Will not ever order this dish again! BTW, got sick later
5 Stars
Delicious!
4 Stars
Really good but some meat not lean enough for my taste.
2 Stars
Too dry
3 Stars
I would give this entree 3.5 stars if I could. My dish probably included five pieces of meat - three of the five pieces were fairly dry and tough. My recommendation would be to keep the meat in a larger plastic container as the gravy - not separated
4 Stars
Simple & yummy
3 Stars
Noodles were bland, beef was delicious as were the carrots & pearl onions. Would have loved more of that yummy sauce!
4 Stars
Weird cuts of beef!
1 Stars
Oily and way too much fat in beef. No flavor very plain. Nothing except the excessive oil i feel after having the dish. I had some good dishes here but this one is one of the worst dishes
4 Stars
Was wonderful. I would prefer a little more sauce !
4 Stars
Really delicious. Love the pearl onions. My only complaint is that it needed twice as much sauce.
4 Stars
Yummy!
5 Stars
Fantastic meat!
5 Stars
Ordered for my husband and he really liked it. First time he said it was almost too much of a serving.
2 Stars
Small
5 Stars
This is delicious! One of my favorite dishes done to perfection. Highly recommend.
4 Stars
Even microwaved, flavor and tenderness was very good. Noodles didn't work - probably should have been heated separately in water.
4 Stars
Like everything Chef Levine makes, this too was delicious! However, the beef was sliced like a pot roast, Instead of Julia's way of braising the meat in the red wine and beef broth and serving it as large cubes with the gravy
3 Stars
Could be 5 if the meat wasn't so fatty making the portion too small.The suace was good, the veggies and buttered noodles were tasty. Again, the portion would have been laughable to my husband, for me, someone who doesn't 'eat the fat' rather slim.
5 Stars
ORDER THIS ONE! Yum!!!
5 Stars
Wow!! I could eat this every day! Absolutely incredible!
5 Stars
I can't imagine anyone not liking this dish -- kudos to Chef Levine. Lots of meaty beef pieces without that stringiness you sometimes get with braised or stewed beef. Great veggies as well -- cooked but not overdone.
3 Stars
Like Mr. Levine's other pasta dishes, the pastas were over-cooked! Also, the meat was tough. However, the overall dish is very delicious.
2 Stars
A major disappointment. Gross - the amount of fat. I separated as much as I could before reheating and serving.
5 Stars
Great flavor and excellent combination of meat and side dishes. The beef was perfectly cooked and stayed very tender after reheating. Also loved the parsley egg noodles, carrots and pearl onions.
4 Stars
Pretty good!
4 Stars
Had the amount of fat I was expecting, not too much gristle. A bit rich for my taste, but will get when I'm in the mood for a high calorie/fat decadent meal (not sure the nutrition info was accurate). A little on the pricey side though.
5 Stars
Great dinner... Meat wast delightfully tender and tasty. This will be a regular for me :)
4 Stars
A nice tender beef with good flavor. I did not really like the parsley egg noodles. Noodles should not have the flavor of raw parsley.
5 Stars
Expensive but delicious. Meat fell apart with a touch of the fork. Incredible flavors, Chef Steven really knows his sauces. Particularly loved the carrots, tops and all.
5 Stars
Fantastic!
5 Stars
This is getting ridiculous. This is my 3rd meal with Munchery, and I've loved all three. Why didn't I hear about Munchery before? This dish was great. Filling and beef was fork-tender. Would get again.
5 Stars
My husband's favorite!
4 Stars
Beef: Very good, flavorful, large portion, lots of meat. Onions were outstanding, perfect consistency, great taste. Please add more onions next time! Carrots were tasteless, OK consistency. The noodles: horrible, inedible, a mushy mess, weird taste.
4 Stars
The boeuf bourguignon was delicious but the pasta were too much cooked.
5 Stars
Excellent. The sauce held up quite nicely in the microwave and was quite tasty. Maybe too much meat but it was so good I ate it all. Noodles were okay. Looking forward to see how Steve's Manischewitz braised short ribs compare to this dish.
5 Stars
Chef Levine did Julia proud. Fantastic item. Tender, juicy, fresh, perfect!
4 Stars
It's good. Had tons of meat, was light on the egg noodles. A friend loved his much more than I mine. I think he would have given it a 10 if he could have.
4 Stars
Old school meaty. That's a good thing.
5 Stars
Amazing flavor! This was so delicious, texture was perfect, flavor amazing. The only thing i wanted was more veggies. Always more veggies. But spectacular!
5 Stars
Have you ever ate something so good that afterwards if you had to spit you didn't and just swallowed it because you didn't want all the amazing flavors that you just put in your mouth to leave your mouth? If you said "no" then try this dish!
4 Stars
This is my favorite Munchery dish; I wish you had it on the menu every week. This time, it was a tiny bit dry; heating it in red wine and butter made it perfect.
3 Stars
Maybe I got a bad batch? The beef was a little flavorless and the noodles were over cooked. The pearl onions and carrots were cooked perfectly. I have been impressed with every other dish from Munchery but this just got an okay in my book.
5 Stars
Have you ever made Julia Child's Boeuf Bourguignon? It's a ginormous PITA. It dirties every pot in the kitchen and requires 3+ hrs. Plus, peeling those f#$%ing pearl onions...don't get me started. This rendition was both delicious and very filling.
5 Stars
One of the best meals I've had from Munchery.
5 Stars
Firstly, don't expect this to be homemade, you can't beat that. However, this is as delicious as can be! The meat was tender, veggies were tasty, and the wine stew was flavorful. The parsley egg noodles were a fine compliment to the bourguignon.
3 Stars
Sadness, I’ve made her Bourguignon before and this is not good. Large pieces of flavorless tough meat, bacon not salt pork, lack of developed beef stock/wine flavor. Garnished with almost no mushrooms or white onions and for some reason carrots.
4 Stars
I really enjoyed this and it was enough for two meals.
1 Stars
Huge disappointment. Meat tough and fat, no sauce, dried out meat and begs. Did oven heating- difficult to get meat hot enough without drying out further the begs. From our experience, stay wary from this dish.
5 Stars
A hit in every way! The beef was fall-apart tender, the vegetables and noodles were the perfect compliment and the portion was extremely generous. I will definitely be looking for Julia's bœuf bourguignon on the menu again.
4 Stars
Terrific Bourguignon! Portion was huge. Flavor was equally huge. Definitely will order again and again and again and..... (You get the picture!)
4 Stars
This was good, the meat was a bit fatty....otherwise, we liked it.
5 Stars
tender meat, sweet firm carrots, great complimentary side noodles.
3 Stars
The flavor was good but the meat was so fat, half of it was thrown out. Really disappointing after the first order of this dish, which was excellent.
5 Stars
Wow, this sauce was unbelievably rich and finessed, with sweet shallots, and the beef was large and satisfying! Best thing I've eaten on Munchery! 2 names to trust: Julia Child and Steven Levine.
5 Stars
Husband is a true bourgignon aficionado and he said this surpassed many of the best ones he has ordered in restaurants! It is delicious! Please keep this one on the regular rotation!
4 Stars
Beef cooked to perfection, tasty and tender. I would like the beef sauce a little bit less salty. Everything else is perfect.
5 Stars
Delicious! Excellent boeuf bourguignon!
5 Stars
Very delicious. The meat was tender and the flavors were wonderful. Would definitely re-order.
5 Stars
Good portion for one. There's definitely more meat than noodles, so it's a very filling dish. Loved the wine taste in it, really wonderful flavors but just a tiny bit too salty for me. Would order again!
5 Stars
This was DELICIOUS! The onions were roasted perfectly and I enjoyed the flavorful carrots and mushrooms. The wine flavor was subtle and not overpowering. I will definitely be ordering this again!
5 Stars
Delicious. Comparable with La Gloutonnerie in Miami Beach, but in the comfort of your own home! Entire dish was tasty from the meat, baby carrots, to the pearl onions. Pair with a red wine for full effect.
5 Stars
So good!!! Melt in your mouth beef (or "boeuf" as the case may be), very flavorful sauce, delicious everything else and huge portion. What is not to like about this dish?
1 Stars
Too salty I couldn't eat it.. Would have been a great dinner as the quality of the meat was great and the portion size was large. Shame about the salt.
4 Stars
Huge portion. Beef was super tender. Veggies cooked perfectly. A little too salty, but easily fixed with more noodles.
5 Stars
Really nice "comfort food":)
5 Stars
I loved the herbs all over the meal. The wine flavor subtly broke through the mild sauce of spare volume. Not a fan of the green ends being left on carrots as their nearly inedible firmness breaks from the softness of the rest of the meal. Delicious.
5 Stars
Great dish !
3 Stars
This smelled great, but the meat wasn't good... very chewy. The sauce and flavor were nice... the meat was the downfall.
5 Stars
Absolutely delicious, Chef Levine! Cannot wait until it is offered again. Also, thank you again for the wonderful Thanksgiving feast. You and all your Munchery offerings are magnificent!! You are so talented, and I so appreciate you...
5 Stars
Better than I could ever expect. All was tender and flavorful. Chef Levine rocks!
4 Stars
This classic was definitely true to the original recipe. Tender, soft, rich, delicious! However, it was the cost that ultimately made it taste less great. For the same price, I could've gotten the steak and lobster :)
3 Stars
I was slightly disappointed in this dish. Meat was overcooked and noodles were runny. I pictured this as a moist yummy stew. Flavors were decent but not amazing.
5 Stars
My favorite kind of dish from Munchery - lovely deep flavor, would have taken a long time if I cooked it, and reheats well!
5 Stars
Delicious. Perfectly cooked. Flavorful and the noodles were seasoned.
5 Stars
Absolutely delicious! Would order again in a heartbeat!!
5 Stars
Brilliant! As if Julia Child herself had cooked me dinner! It was perfect in every way--the meat was tender and moist and full of flavor and the carrots were delicious as if just picked from the garden. Perfect with noodles! Please cook this again!!!
5 Stars
This was a lovely take on a classic. The beef in particular was high quality and wonderfully tender. Each component--pasta, carrots, mushrooms, beef, onions--worked well individually or together. And I love the pearl onions. My favorite addition!
5 Stars
Utterly delicious! Absolutely will order this dish again!
5 Stars
I've always wanted to try cooking this myself. When I tried Chef Levine's version, I was totally impressed. A wonderful portion of tasty beef and rich buttery noodles! I hope this is a regular choice, so I never have to get my recipe book out!
4 Stars
This was good except I needed to add salt, there was lots of fat in the meat, and I would have wanted more of a balance of meat & noodles. I didn't need quite that much meat. Still this was better than anything else I could have eaten last night.
5 Stars
This may well be the best thing I've had so far from munchery. The beef was nicely cooked, and managed to stand up well to my microwave reheating - pretty impressive. I love the flavours, but wish there were more veggies.
5 Stars
delicious!! more noodles would be appreciated meat a little fatty - I know: fat = flavor but could be trimmed a little more would order again, thank you reliable delivery on time
