Our Review of Organic Ground Beef at Costco

The quality and flavor of the Kirkland Signature Organic Ground Beef is excellent. Over the years we have bought co-op ground beef, every variety (grass fed, pasture, etc) and “step” from whole foods, and we find the overall value, quality and flavor of the organic ground beef at Costco is a win-win for our family. To be honest, the flavor of grass fed beef waivers a lot and it can be tricky with kids.

The 1.3 lb brick size is perfect for our family. For our family meals, we find 1 lb isn’t quite enough, and 2 lbs is way too much…this is the perfect quantity for us. The individual packs of ground beef are perforated and easy divided at home – some to the fridge, some to the freezer. The packages are also easy to open when frozen.

The organic Costco ground beef is 85% lean and 15% fat, which is great for many easy beef-based family meals like tacos, hamburgers, bolognese sauce, etc. Whether you’re eating keto, gluten free, feeding picky kids, looking for freezable meals or just browsing the organic options at Costco, the organic ground beef is most definitely recommended by us!

  1. hello,
    have you noticed with organic costco beef that there are orange bits in the meat? it looks like the fat, instead of white there are light orange bits. i have been looking at the meat closely now when i purchase and i am able to see at least 1 bit.

    1. Hi! I haven’t noticed that – but I still have one brick from the pack left in my fridge and I’ll pay attention when I make it this week and let you know if I see it. Was it just one pack, or have you noticed it the last few times you purchased it? I’ll let you know when I open it! Thanks for mentioning it! Marie

    2. I started buying Kirklands organic ground beef lately and I have notice quite a bit of what looks like bacon chunk like bits. Best way to describe it. Really weird. I hope I’m not eating human flesh or road kill ! 🤮🤭

      1. Eeek. I just bought some this week, I cooked one already but I’ll pay closer attention to the next two. Maybe it just needed another pass through the grinder? If you’re grossed out you can definitely take it back – though I know the idea of saving meat and taking back something that perishable often just seems like a lot of work (well that happens to me anyway lol!)…but just mentioning in case Costco is convenient for you 🙂 Hope the next package is better!!

    1. I rinse them and recycle them. I am definitely not an expert on recycling though…might want to confirm with customer service on Costco.com too 🙂
