Joe Beef Now Has TV Dinners For 1 So You Can Elevate Your Nightly Netflix & Cry Session

With the pandemic in full swing, chances are you find yourself eating alone in front of the television more often than not. If this conjures up images of sad Lean Cuisine and Hungry Man meals, then it's time to rethink your life choices thanks to Joe Beef's latest menu item: upscale TV dinners. 

The Little Burgundy steak and seafood joint, one of Montreal's quintessential eateries, is putting its own creative spin on ready-made-meals, first popularized in the 1950s.

Like a classic TV dinner, you get a complete meal for a single person all in one convenient take-out package and it requires minimal preparation on your part.

$30 Blanquette de veau truffée TV dinner from Joe Beef

As Joe Beef puts it on its website, "everything you need to watch your favorite program."

However, unlike a classic TV dinner — which is arguably comparable to airplane food — this is next-level delicious.

The meal currently for sale on the Joe Beef website is a veal blanquette with truffles. 

According to the website, this consists of "old-fashioned veal stew cooked in Marsala with baby onions, celery root and mushrooms, cream sauce and winter truffle."

It's served with rice pilaf and Vichy carrots. And dessert is a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream and a cherry.

It costs $30 and should be pre-ordered for pick-up Wednesday through Saturday at least 24 hours in advance.

For food that doesn't come separated into compartments in a TV-dinner style container, the restaurant is still offering a classic menu for take-out, as well as a holiday menu

For anyone in dire need of a little retail therapy, there's no better time than now to indulge because so many stores in Montreal are having summer sales at the moment.
