This classic comfort food dinner is served family-style. Pot roast is braised in red wine with carrots and onions until oh-so tender. On the side comes Brussels sprouts that are roasted until caramelized and the creamiest of mashed potatoes. It’s not fancy, but it sure does hit the spot if you’re craving home-style, from-scratch cooking. Our weeknight Family Meals are created by Munchery chefs based on some of their own favorite childhood meal-time memories, and designed to feed a family of four (2 adults, 2 kids). Let us cook a delicious meal for your family, so you can spend more time doing what’s important— spending time with the ones you love.

What People Are Saying

4 Stars
Pot roast for 6, sides for 2. All good, but proportions are not right.
3 Stars
It was delicious, but completely out of proportion. There was enough meat for four easily, but only enough Brussel sprouts and potatoes for one, or maybe two.
5 Stars
Delicious dinner! A little. Ore work than other meals but worth the effort. The meat portion was cry generous. The sides wee not very sufficient.
3 Stars
Roast delicious; potatoes not good and not enough to go around. Never include brussels sprouts in a dinner as a side, no one would eat them.
4 Stars
Pot roast was delicious but the sides were skimpy compared to the amount of roast. We had a lot of meat leftover and could only have a tablespoon and half dollop of mashed potatoes per person for 4. Brussels was also a small portion.
4 Stars
Excellent, with only flaw being that the serving of mashed potatoes is too small. Other than that, we love this meal.
3 Stars
Very heavy and fatty - okay but not a fav
5 Stars
The best thanks
5 Stars
My kids loved this dish.
3 Stars
On the family meals the sides are consistently too small. We had to make more mashed potatoes and add a salad. The portion and quality of the meat is always good but why skimp on the sides like taters which are inexpensive?!
4 Stars
I received a very generous portion of pot roast. If you like Brussels sprouts, you will be disappointed: they taste great, but there's only enough for two servings for people who like them.
5 Stars
Great very tasty
1 Stars
We really did not like this dinner.
5 Stars
Delicious and cooked just right! My husband loves pot roast and this is a great quick dinner!
5 Stars
Meat was cooked to perfection, mashed potatoes were creamy and brussel sprouts were cooked perfectly. I chose to heat everything on the stove.The brussels on a frying pan to give them an extra crunch. The pot roast in a dutch oven at a low temp
4 Stars
great dish however the taters....really?? hardly enough to feed 2.
3 Stars
Very fatty.
3 Stars
The food itself was very good, but the portions were laughable. Totally not worth what you pay for. The side dishes were so teeny tiny, there's no way it would feed four children, let alone four adults. Super disappointed.
2 Stars
The pot roast was filled with fat. I spent 10 minutes trimming the meat.
5 Stars
The pot roast arrived chilled. I cut into it before hearing it up and it was rare, perfect! That is how we like it! So I only heated it up for a minute, not the 10 that the label said. It was so good. I would serve it to company as homemade!
3 Stars
Tons of meat but way short on the potatoes and carrots
4 Stars
The meat is good but the carrots need to be cut into smaller pieces. The mashed potatoes are a bit heavy. The brussels are too lemony, too salty and undercooked.
4 Stars
The pot roast meat was tender, with a flavorful sauce, and included plenty of carrots and onions. The mashed potatoes were the highlight of the meal, but we ran out well before the meal was over, as the portion was a bit skimpy.
4 Stars
The sprouts were a little bit salty
5 Stars
This is my family's favorite meal. We get it just about every Wednesday and it's something everyone looks forward to. Thank you!
5 Stars
So tasty & tender....loved the dauce/gravy! Brussel sprouts were way under-cooked
5 Stars
Oh My Gosh this is amazing. Better than my Moms pot roast. The only thing is that the dinner is for four but the mash potato serving is more like for 2, maybe 3 tops.
5 Stars
Loved this family meal! Very hearty and tasty! I was afraid it really wouldn't feed a family of four as we eat more than the usual "standard" size portions...but it did! Will order again!
3 Stars
Would love to have an option to heat up in the containers provided and not a separate microwave safe dish. If the dishes it came in was microwave safe, it wasn't clear. I would use munchery at a hotel if the dishes it came in were the dishes I coul
3 Stars
Not enough salt and not very tender
3 Stars
Brussels sprouts were bad. I sent a photo. The meat was wonderful, 5 stars
4 Stars
The amount of meat was impressive, but it was only enough potatoes for two. I prefer a more savory pot roast versus the sweeter flavored sauce that was here, but it was still good.
4 Stars
The roast was tasty and went nicely with the oh so buttery mashed potatoes. Unfortunately the serving size of mash was much too little for 4.
4 Stars
Very tasty tender meat - Brussels sprouts were a bit undercooked and very hard - mashed potatoes were too gooey.
4 Stars
Crazy large portion on the beef, which was delicious. Potatoes were amazing as well and although I liked the brussel sprouts, the flavor profile was a bit out there for my kiddos...
4 Stars
Pretty good, the gravy is great. Easier to heat in a large covered sauce pan, just cut up the meat a little and let the simmering gravy and steam do its work. Would be better with a different starch, the mash was pretty average.
4 Stars
The pot roast carrots, mashed potatoes the Brussels sport had a little fishy taste.
1 Stars
Forgot the mashed potatoes they are not in box!!!
5 Stars
This is the BEST family dinner ever!
3 Stars
Barely had enough mashed potatoes for 3 people, woulda starved if we were 4...
5 Stars
This our family favorite! I add some egg noodles to it and it's a crowd pleaser. Yumm
4 Stars
The only reason why I left 4 stars vs 5 is that portion size for the sides is not enough to feed a family of four. Otherwise excellent family meal that satisfies the adults & children.
4 Stars
Excellent. But the brussel sprouts are too lemony
4 Stars
The pot roast is yummy and the portions are good. But Brussels sprout is salty and doesn't need the lemon or orange or whatever citrus flavor was added - garlic wud be better. And less butter or cream in the mashed potatoes wud be better.
5 Stars
FABULOUS! Perfectly cooked and delicious.
5 Stars
Perfect moist roast! My kids loved it. Sides were delicious as well.
4 Stars
Pot roast was very tasty and extremely tender - portion was very generous! Potato portion, not so much (my 2 girls ate it all...they said it was delish!) More potatoes please!!!! Overall a great meal but would be stellar if there were more potatoes.
1 Stars
Would not order again. Followed directions and meat was dry and crumbly and carrots were hard. I'm all for low sodium but this was borderline tasteless. Mashed potatoes were good but portion really small for a family meal. Disappointed.
5 Stars
Yummy - gear for four maybe order an extra side or make a salad?
5 Stars
Pretty much perfect. The meat was tender and fell apart easily. The sauce was delicious and the sides were right on.
5 Stars
This dinner was amazing! The roast was delicious! I only wish there were more potatoes and brussel sprouts. I will be ordering again!
3 Stars
Not enough mash, overall too small
5 Stars
Pot roast was excellent. Mashed potatoes were great but too small for w family of 4. A good addition maybe would be some egg noodles for all that pot roast gravy. Overall the pot roast is cooked to perfection.
5 Stars
Delicious all around. Pot Roast portion is huge!.Potato portion is small for 4 people, which is tragic because they are AMAZING. More potatoes please!
5 Stars
Love Everything about this Company
4 Stars
Delicious but need more mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts
4 Stars
This was very tasty - but salty. I love salty but it needs more potatoes to soup it up. Either more mashed or some potatoes and more carrots as part of the roast would be ideal.
5 Stars
My family is still talking about how moist and delicious the meal was....
5 Stars
Delicious!
5 Stars
Fantastic Roast! Juicy & Tasty! Worth raving over! A little shy on the sprouts and mashed potatoes for four people, but they're superb also!
3 Stars
The food is lovely, flavorful and the combination makes a great meal. SO disappointed in the size of the sides, which were the same size as sold as an individual serving side. I can't consider this a good value,
5 Stars
A little salty, but good.
5 Stars
Everything was absolutely amazing! I would definitely recommend this comfort food meal to anyone
3 Stars
Pot roast was cooked nicely & brussels sprouts were delicious, but the sauce lacked depth & flavor. Size of mashed potatoes was ridiculously small for four people. There wasn't enough for three of us to have a sufficient portion size.
4 Stars
Deliciously homemade tasting
5 Stars
Mashed potatoes delicious!!
5 Stars
This pot roast dinner is so delicious - even my 4 year old loves it! Very generous portions- especially the roast.
5 Stars
Oh man! Super! Down home! Incredibily good! Having it again ASAP! Two of us ate it all! Congradulations to whoever put this one together.
4 Stars
Delicious! Tender Roast. Although there aren't enough veggies for a family of 4. Would be great if Munchery had a better variety of dishes. Seems to be the same old thing most times.
4 Stars
The pot roast was great as where the mashed potatoes , but the brussels sprouts were huge disappointment
3 Stars
Taste and flavors were amazing. My only complaint is the size of the sides. The amount of brussel sprouts was really extraordinarily small.
4 Stars
flavor, portions excellent. will become a regular item for us. with for other sides instead of potatoes. wild rice? brown rice? beans? bread?
3 Stars
The roast was well cooked and tasted delicious but the carrots were still hard and the Brussels sprouts were also too hard. Steaming the Brussels sprouts for 3 minutes before cooking them will soften them just right.
3 Stars
More gravy please. Tons of beef but not enough juice.
5 Stars
Excellent
4 Stars
Super generous portion size!! Could feed 4-5 adults honestly. The mashed potatoes were absolutely divine but the pot roast was a bit salty.
