Kirkland Canned Roast Beef - Costco

I bought some of this yesterday. It has zero carbs and is packed in water, not the thick gravy stuff of the canned roast beef of old.

I will be making a 'machaca-like' quiche with it today and a 'beef stroganoff-like' dish with Dreamfields. I plan on making some shredded mexican-seasoned beef enchiladas this week as well. BBQ beef for wraps sounds good too.

Has anyone else tried this? Any other ideas for recipes?

I guess it would be just like left-over pot roast.

Well.... I just tossed the quiche together and it is really good once it is warmed. I would not eat it cold. It was swimming in vegies - onion, chilis, peppers and salsa, so it was really good. It did need quite a bit of salt to be tasty, but the texture is really good.

Your post reminded me I had this in the pantry.

I made chili yesterday, and I'm on induction again. . .so I was using mainly seasonings. . .and it was toooooooooo spicy. . .so I dumped in a can of this to spread the seasoning over more meat.

It worked!

I was surprised that it didn't look appetising in the can, just big chunks of beef in liquid, but it shredded easily enough. . .I can see using it more!

We love this!
I often shred the beef and add RF mayo, horseradish and black pepper to make roast beef salad.
It's great.

I really like this too...lately I have been adding a little bit of ranch dressing to it and sprinkle some cheddar cheese on top...nuke it for a bit and eat that. It is pretty filling as well.

Thanks so much guys!

I've had several cans of this sitting in my cupboard and didn't know what to do with them!

The Roast Beef salad sounds luscious! Do you have any proportions you use, or just throw it all together?

Love this stuff! Even got my mother to try some when she was visiting. Since she lives alone she rarely cooks any more and thinks it will be a good way to add to her menus.

My second experiment with this was a beef stroganoff w/ dreamfields. It also turned out great. It is really tender with just a little heat, not dry. It seems like it is cooked a very long time before it is canned.

I have one can left. Maybe some Machaca eggs for breakfast or some beef enchiladas w/ low carb tortillas.

I just bought this today at Costco, based on the recommendations here!

I'm sure it IS cooked a LONG time before canning, as it says it's brisket, which NEEDS long slow cooking to tenderize.

Don't know what I'll make first but will post it when I do!

Costco canned beef - can't find it!

Hi all,
I'm a fan of the Kirkland Canned Beef. I haven't been able to find it the last few times I went to Costco. Does anyone know if it's been discontinued?

re: Kirkland Canned Roast Beef - Costco

I've also had cans of this in my pantry and was wondering how to use them.

Tatiana 12001 - your recipes sound great: the machaca quiche, beef stroganoff, beef enchilades - yum!! Is there any way you can post so I can try them out? When I improvise w/o a recipe, the results are not good...:blush:

Costco - beef in cans

We live in Southern California and we love the Kirkland canned beef. It's very lean and great for all kind of meals. We used it mostly for Quesadilla or even for Sidedishes with rice. Unfortunately we haven't seen it for awhile at Costco.

Then a few weeks ago I've been at Costco with a friend of mine and was all excited to see the canned beef again. But it was a different brand and only in a 4-pack ($9.99). First I hesitated because of the price difference (more expensive), but I was too curious if it's as same as good or even better

Harvest Creek Roast Beef in Beef Broth (97 % fat free) is the worst canned beef I've ever bought in my life! It's very fatty, has lots of tendons within the chunks, sometimes discolored and it's covered in white thick fat. 97 % fat free is a myth! I had to handle each chunk of meat separate and the bottom of the can was covered in thick white sticky fat.

This is just the last waste of beef what they put in the can and the 10 Dollar are way too much! I wonder if the person who is responsible for the good at Costco ever tried this canned beef from Harvest Creek. It's a total rip off!

I will complain next time I go there

PS: Oh, by the way, I'm new here and have usually a sunshine mood

[COLOR="Navy"]I just bought this version as well and was disappointed.

We recently had a Costco rep here at work (before Harvest Creek came out) and asked her when the Kirkland roast beef was coming back..she told me it was a seasonal item I asked how was roast beef seasonal and got no answer. Apparently the real answer was they were going with a different brand. [/COLOR]

I only found the Harvest Creek brand at Costco and while it was good, it just lacked flavor. I had to add some seasonings.


What I did was take 1 can of roast beef, shredded the meat, added some seasonings and heated in a pan. Then, I added a small can of green diced chilies and a small can of green salsa. To finish it off, I added a large handful of shredded colby jack. It was soooo good. I topped with a little sour cream.

I think this would be so good with refried beans.

Aside of your recipe, how did you deal with all the fat and nasty looking meat in the can?

Went to Costco yesterday in Winchester Va. and Harvest Creek was not on shelf. I checked and it is delete pending, when it is gone it's gone.
Maybe if we all contact Costco we can save it!! I love this product! Has anyone seen it anywhere else?

This is what I've tried (don't have Costco near me). It is very tasty. I use it to make roast beef hash (basically I use Linda Sue's Rosy Radish Home Fries recipe with the radish chopped small or shredded, add the canned roast beef and brown it up).

We like this so much I haven't made anything else with it.

I would love to have the stroganoff recipe. It's always been a favorite, but the way I made it was pretty high carb.
