Kirkland Lean Ground Beef

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I usually buy imported frozen beef patties at S&R, like Members Mark or Kirkland, but last week they did not have them.  Then I noticed, in another area, Kirkland Lean Ground Beef, 5 pounds (5 x 1 lb packets).  p1829 works out to $32.55 = $6.51 per pound.  Cheaper than the patties.

Not a bad deal considering that they are $28.49 on the Costco US website.  The taste is probably the best of any ground beef I have bought here, including the patties mentioned above.  Quick and easy to cook up some ground beef dishes, compared to grilling the frozen burgers.  I wish they had a higher fat content but still great for keto!

Has anyone tried Bison ground beef?  Costco has them.  The flavor is excellent and lower in cholesterol because they are grass feed.  Tried Bison steaks while visit our home state of South Dakota.  Good flavor, but too tough and chewy.

Before I moved to PH I bought some at either Costco or Whole Foods.  I thought it was fine but it is very lean.  I prefer more fat now and I don't worry about cholesterol.  I can get New Zealand beef here and I think all NZ beef is grassfed, so it is also lean.

Have you seen this video of @Dave Hounddriver's buffalo?

Most American ranchers sell their steers (young, castrated males) to feed lots.  They are raised and fattened on grain, mostly corn, until achieving a certain weight.  They are then sold for slaughter.  Increasingly, supermarkets advertise "grass fed" ground beef at a premium price.  I guess this is in response to public demand.

We enjoy visiting Custer Park in South Dakota and Theodore Roosevelt National Park because of their large, free range Bisons.  Custer has an annual round up to vaccinate and cull their herds.  The culls are donated to Native American tribes that still have herds (to prevent in-breeding).  Spectators number around 30,000.  The Bisons at this park are around 3,000.

Tried it.  Too gamey for me.  Tried https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beefalo too.  It is more what you describe:  good flavor but too tough and chewy.

Do you mean Member's Value?  If yes, how does that compare to Kirkland which is triple the price?

No, I think it is Member's Mark, like these, but the package is a bit different.  I don't think they have had the frozen Kirkland patties for a while.  It has always been the MM recently.

The Kirkland frozen beef that is not patties is only slightly more expensive.  The MM patties were about $36 for 18 last time I bought them a month or two ago.  6 pounds = $6 a pound.

The problem with the patties is that we would BBQ all 18 at once and I would eat them all week.  After a few days they start to dry out.  With the one pound chunks of the Kirkland, I just cook 1 or 2 pounds on the stove.  I got some parchment paper at S&R too, so I am going to try this recipe tonight:

Our younger son studied at Denver University.  Rocky Mountain Oysters is a dare pulled on newbies including visitors like me.  Those who have tried Balut, there is a small, rubbery, tasteless thing.  Rocky Mountain Oysters are similar in texture.
