Delicious and tender touch of horseradish was perfect
1 Stars
The meat was chewy and flavorless, really disappointing, I didn't feel like I was getting any value for my money
3 Stars
this is so inconsistent. I've ordered a few times with varying degrees of satisfaction from great to mediocre to not good. This last time not good; gravy was totally different color & taste. don't think this batch got wine braised. may stop trying
1 Stars
Whoever mashed the potatoes needs to get this feedback... You left a whole potato in it! I can send a photo, send me your email.

Amazing. I never used knife.

Always good

I just wish they'd leave the pearl onions out. Many people don't like onions.
3 Stars
Really tasty, but not a lot of meat (equal parts fat and meat). My only complaint is I wish there was more beef.
1 Stars
All fat on these little nuggets of meat.
3 Stars
Not sure if the same dish is cooked by the same chef every time. The dish tasted great the first time (though small portion), but when I ordered it the second time, it tasted differently and the sauce was more like gravy than a red wine sauce.
2 Stars
Small portion and the meats are tasteless. Was expecting something better.
5 Stars
Excellent meal! Tender beef, tasty sauce. Perfect portion size.

Hello, This dish was just OK! The beef was very tender, but the dish could have used a few more vegetables and sauce. Thanks, Linda Benjamin
5 Stars
Great
4 Stars
Meat was tender. Mashed potatoes were okay, nothing special. Sauce added moisture to the meat but not great flavor.
4 Stars
Taste great but portion was smaller than before

It was ok, very small portion
1 Stars
I received 2 chunks of pure fat... Inedible... Very disappointed two orders in a row....
5 Stars
One of the best! I was afraid that this was going to get overcooked when heated - nope! Perfectly tender and juicy!
5 Stars
I have seen this dish a few times and haven't pulled the trigger until now. I'm regretting having not ordered it sooner. The mashed potatoes were perfect, the meat was tender and the sauce added so much flavor. I will get this one again.
5 Stars
flavorful and tender!

Meat was very tender, the potatoes were great. Will get this dish again

It's okay.. Pretty good, but wouldn't be the first thing I'd order again.. But tasty!
5 Stars
Thoroughly enjoyed.
4 Stars
Super tasty on a cold night!
3 Stars
Portion size too small.
5 Stars
Wow
5 Stars
Only way to make it better is if you guys told me what to have my oven preheated to after I place my order
4 Stars
Plentiful and quite satisfactory
3 Stars
Not as good as last time. This time one piece of rib was five-star. The other was a too fatty three-star.
3 Stars
Too salty and high in sodium
2 Stars
Not my favorite
4 Stars
The short ribs were outstanding! The saffron mashed potatoes, I did not care for. Chive or bleu cheese mashed, would've been a better pairing.
5 Stars
Wonderful dish! We order this one regularly.
5 Stars
This dish was a hit for the whole family. . . including my 6 and 8 year old.
2 Stars
These were fatty. I would not buy them again.
4 Stars
Yummy! Good sized portions and gravy is awesome
4 Stars
It wasn't as pretty as the picture but it was very tasty.
4 Stars
very flavorful though meat a bit stringy. More gravy would have been nice with the mashed potatoes. Carrots cooked just right.
3 Stars
Too little meat, too much fat
3 Stars
Ok but carrots over cooked
4 Stars
It was a satisfying meal and the portion was generous but it could use a little more seasoning.
4 Stars
Very good, little skimpy on the sides, but delicious.
5 Stars
This is the best meal I have ordered from Munchery. The meat is tender and flavorful. The potatoes are chunk but tasty. The carrots are fine. I would happily order this again, when I feel like meat.
5 Stars
This was my husband's first dish ordered from Munchery and his comment was "Wow, let's order from Munchery again!"
4 Stars
The portions were a little smaller than depicted in the photographs but still delicious. We ordered this plus another entrée and the two together were plenty. Again I have to say you couldn't eat in a restaurant this inexpensively
2 Stars
Dry, underwhelming
3 Stars
Very tender but portion is very small.
5 Stars
Delicious!
1 Stars
Tastes bad
5 Stars
Absolutely delicious! Would like more sauce.
3 Stars
Portions could have been larger, should have been more veggies. The mashed were a little dry upon reheating and the saffron was a bit too much. Overall tasty but not a dinner portion we were still hungry after.
5 Stars
Amazing!
2 Stars
First, there is no reason this dish needs to be 1350 calories and 101 grams of fat! Overall short ribs were dry and the carrots over cooked. I didn't bother with the potatoes because they likely had most of the fat.
1 Stars
If I paid for this at a restaurant I'd send it back. So flavorless. The highlight of the dish was the tenderness of the meat.
3 Stars
Good but needed more sauce
3 Stars
Kinda fatty. Very small meat portions - not at all like the photo
5 Stars
Wow. This is just incredible. I'd order it again today if it was on the menu.
5 Stars
Love this dish the meat was so tender cut it with a fork will order again!
3 Stars
This time the short ribs were quite small. Enjoyed everything else.
4 Stars
It was very good. The potatoes left something to be desired however.
2 Stars
Found the meat to be very dry but the potatoes were good

Good flavor but a bit dry.
5 Stars
This is a great dish and the portion size was perfect ! Love the flavors!
5 Stars
SO delish!
4 Stars
Short ribs were tender with just the right amount of lean to fat ratio. Carrots and pearl onions were nicely cooked and sweet. Loved the sauce that came with the dish. Mashed potatoes were average, nothing special.
5 Stars
Awesome
5 Stars
My favorite dish so favorite! I loved everything about it!
5 Stars
Delicious & satisfying. Well-cooked (not over cooked) & perfectly seasoned. Beautiful.
5 Stars
Excellent!
4 Stars
The short ribs, sauce and carrots were great. The mashed potatoes were sub-standard especially as compared to the mashed potatoes that came with the previous meat-loaf dinner. They were dry and tasteless.
4 Stars
It was tender use a fork & it melts in your mouth
5 Stars
Very yummy. Flavored were blended well.
4 Stars
Short ribs were delish!! The carrots, well carrots. Crunchy and good flavor nothing special. A few more carrots would have been nice. The mashed potatoes were slightly dry and a little crumbly. A little pat of butter would have made them bettah!
5 Stars
Excellent!
5 Stars
Simply delicious and a good portion.
5 Stars
Delicious!
3 Stars
Looked bad but tasted decent.
4 Stars
Good, hearty dish. Heat in oven versus microwave, makes a big difference. Sauce didn't have much flavor. Potatoes needed seasoning. Kind of crazy to see the nutrition info on this!
5 Stars
So good! Meat was tender and fell apart - sauce was yummy!
5 Stars
The absolute best! I usually order 2 so I can have it again later during the week. I REALLY liked it when it came with polenta. Just sayin'.
4 Stars
Excellent . Meat tender moist and tasty.. Gravy very well flavored. Carrots perfect..,enjoyed this a lot! Potatoes very good flavor!!
5 Stars
The meat was tender and the mash potatoes were delicious. I also thought there was just the right amount of carrots and onions. I would definitely order this again!
3 Stars
Meat was very fatty
2 Stars
It was way over cooked.
5 Stars
Delicious! Really enjoyed it.
3 Stars
Braised short ribs lacked flavor. Would've preferred buttered mashed potatoes instead of the saffron. Not very satisfying meal.
3 Stars
It needs a tastier bx
2 Stars
Picture deceiving- received 2 small slices and 2 carrots per order. Picture has much larger slices, more carrots. And 101 grams of fat for it was not too 'healthy'
5 Stars
OMG!!! Cut with a fork and melts in your mouth!!
4 Stars
Not fond of the potato salad, though ribs were delicious! Wish there was more.
4 Stars
Meat was tender. Sauce was spiced well and flavorful. I would like to see one or two more carrots (I got five in two orders). Mash potatoes were great! My only complaint is one of the pieces of meat in one order was 75% fat which made it inedible.
4 Stars
The short ribs and carrots were delicious. However the potato salad was unbeatable.
5 Stars
Delicious. Reheated perfectly. Potatoes are creamy and rich.
5 Stars
I think my favorite munchery meal!
5 Stars
Meat is super tender and flavorful and loved the potatoes and veggies. One of my favorite Munchery dishes!
4 Stars
This dish varies. I've given it a rave review in the past. This time was a ... shrug .... okay, but nothing to write home about. Not as much sauce/jus. Veggies not thoroughly cooked. Nothing I couldn't remedy but didn't knock my socks off.
5 Stars
Delicious! Short ribs and mashed potatoes phenomenal. One of our favorites so far! Would definitely order again!
5 Stars
Mmmm...very good. Will order again.
5 Stars
Hell yeah!
4 Stars
Your food never looks like the photos, but this was the best meal I've had from Munchery. Short rib (1) was fantastic - very tender and tasty. Potatoes good - little dry. Carrot (1) - also good. May order this again. Munchery redeemed!
3 Stars
Needs more sauce and baby onions to make it really a braised type dish. Meat dry too.
5 Stars
Very tasty!!! Like it!!!
5 Stars
I loved it it was so delicious
3 Stars
1st time using Munchery. Short ribs were on the bland side even with the sauce and rather fatty. Three small chunks of carrots. Potatoes were tasty.
4 Stars
Really tasty! Carrots were a little undercooked, but overall delicious.
5 Stars
This has become one of my favorites! The meat was tender and moist. Will definitely order again.
2 Stars
It was just ok, it was not as i expected compare to the picture
4 Stars
Moist and flavorful!
4 Stars
Thought the sauce needed more oomph. Otherwise a nice complete meal. The meat was very tender.
5 Stars
Scrumptious!
3 Stars
was good in flavor but basically received a slab of fat barely any meat
4 Stars
The ribs and vegetables were delicious. Minus 1 star for the mashed potatoes: pretty basic, and saffron was unnoticed. Some of the potato chunks were so big, it barely categorized as mashed.
4 Stars
Quite nice.
4 Stars
Somewhat disappointing meal. Meat and sauce were good but didn't notice any saffron in the mashed potatoes and only 2 carrots for the vegetables with no mushrooms..
3 Stars
Good texture. But both the meat and the potatoes were bland.
5 Stars
Wholesome comfort food! Spot on!
4 Stars
A delicious dish that cooks up perfectly in the microwave. The meat is wonderfully tender and flavorful. However there is not nearly enough sauce to go around.
5 Stars
Finally -- a meat dish with a hearty portion!!! Meat was tender and flavorful. Will definitely order again when I am HUNGRY!
5 Stars
This was probably the most exceptional dish we have ordered from here. The ribs were off the charts, and the sides were good as well, but the hero of the dish were for sure the ribs, which were cooked to perfection, even after reheating in oven.
5 Stars
This was amazing. I never have the time to slowcook ribs myself these days, but if I did, this is pretty close to how I'd do it. Very tender. Fatty but not too fatty. Potatoes were dense, delicious.
3 Stars
Very generous portion size, and it fills you up. The flavor was very plain, though, especially in the mashed potatoes. Favorite part was the carrots.
3 Stars
The meat (and it's accompanying sauce) was somewhat bland, unfortunately. The portion size was quite substantial, though.
4 Stars
Good flavor, well cooked. A generous portion that could serve two small eaters. I could have used more sauce. Nice basic American cooking.
5 Stars
probably the best thing I've had on this site so far. really good portion size and the meat was crazy tender. definitely getting this again.
5 Stars
Wow. Fall-apart tender meat. Soooo good. Nice mix of carrots, mushrooms, and onions. Good portion size.
4 Stars
The meat was a bit tough but nothing that would deter the flavor. The sides were exceptionally tasty.
3 Stars
Portion size was small and the Short Ribs were dry. The vegetables were quite nice.
5 Stars
OMG! These were amazing. Simpy amazing. Loved it.
4 Stars
the texture of the meat is a bit chewy
4 Stars
the beef was excellent. the saffron potatoes were very liquidy.
3 Stars
good flavors and nicely cooked short ribs. i would have liked more sauce. there wasnt enough to cover all the short ribs. also the carrots were extremely mushy. not sure if that was because i microwaved it
4 Stars
Tender chunks of short rib!
4 Stars
Will order again. The short ribs were easy to cut apart. Could have been slightly more moist, but were overall nicely done and enjoyable. Delicious, delicious sauce. Carrots were great, mushrooms fine. Potato consistency was okay. Yummy.
5 Stars
Perfect, rich and satisfying
5 Stars
After ordering from munchery 2-3 times per week for a while now, this is easily the best meal we've had so far. This is one of those perfect slow-cooked short rib main courses that you get in fancy restaurants for $30+.
4 Stars
Short ribs were amazing. The mashed potatoes, however, were basically inedible. We continue to get the dish for the short ribs but the potatoes need work!
4 Stars
Ribs were delicious. Vegetables were fine. Potatoes were very underwhelming. Worth ordering just for the ribs.
5 Stars
Unbelievably tender and delicious meat.
4 Stars
Solidly good, tender braised short ribs. Not transcendental, just good. I'd order it again. I loved the carrots, cooked perfectly! The pearl onions also went great with the beef. My partner and I, however, thought the mashed potatoes were meh.
5 Stars
Was excellent. So tender! Can't wait to order again.
5 Stars
Delicious, reheated well.
5 Stars
A brilliant dish! The short ribs were so absolutely delicious that I went back to Munchery website to see when I could order them again! PLEASE bring them back soon. This was as good as short ribs get! The meat was tender and full of flavor!
4 Stars
This was soooo good! Everything was well-seasoned, tender, etc. I'm taking off one star only because there were only 2 pearl onions and 4 carrots--just needed a few more of those! I would totally order this again.
5 Stars
Amazing. I want this again again. Homey, comforting and just hit the spot. Thanks!!!
5 Stars
Excellant, really good....
3 Stars
Good flavors but some areas were tough on the meat.
3 Stars
The braised short rib is a bit too salty.
1 Stars
Re Sept. 4 order: This item was completely unacceptable. The meat at arrival was already well done prior to any warming (not remotely medium rare), tough and fatty. I had to discard the entire meal.
4 Stars
The short ribs were so tender and flavorful (5 stars) but the potatoes lacked flavor and tasted like styrofoam.
5 Stars
Very tender ribs, no bones. Wonderful!
5 Stars
Delicious. We would order it again.
5 Stars
My, my, my! I don't know what to say. This was the BEST meal ever. If you are considering ordering this, THINK NO MORE! You will not be disappointed. I had company tonight while I was eating dinner and sorry, but this meal was too good to share. The meat was pull-apart tender. The potatoes were smooth and very flavorful--definitely not box mashed potatoes. I've ordered almost a dozen meals so far and this one was definitely the best!
5 Stars
Perfectly seasoned. Perfectly prepared. Short ribs were fork tender deliciousness. Very good-sized portion. Would definitely order this again.
