Costco Organic Ground Beef Review – Part 2

Costco Organic Ground Beef Review – Part 2

My first review was written before I even opened the packaging.  You can read Part 1 here:

Now I have been working through some of this Costco Organic Ground Beef, and I am very pleased with it.  Here is some information:

Packaging of Costco Organic Ground Beef

This package contains 4 pounds of Ground Beef, packaged in three separate vacuum packed sections.  A perforation in the packaging makes it very easy to separate the three sections from each other without tearing the packages open.  This is very helpful so that you only have to deal with 1.34 pounds of Costco Organic Ground Beef at one time.  The other two packs can wait for another day.

Once you get ready to open the package, it opens very easily.  I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and lots of pain in my hands and wrists.  I rarely can open vacuum packaging with my hands alone.  Most of the time I need scissors to get the package open.  Happily this Costco packaging opened with very little force coming from my hands to do it.  Nice!

The meat itself looked and smelled as fresh as you would want it to be.  I cooked up some of it into crumbles on packaging day and it was very tasty.  I have nothing to complain about in that regard.

 

Freezing Costco Organic Ground Beef

I went with the Simple Living method to freeze ground beef.

I used smaller bags and put only two portions in each.  They are somewhat hamburger shaped and froze and stored easily.

 

Cooking Frozen Costco Organic Ground Beef

Removing one frozen patty from the bag is easy and it pops right into a heated skillet without thawing.  Five minutes on each side and a five minute rest was perfect for me and created a well-done hamburger.  I had a wedge of bread that I baked yesterday.  I halved it for a bun substitute and it worked perfectly.  I don’t know how else I could get a hamburger that tasted as good and was ready so quickly.

I’ll be trying to eat the Costco Organic Ground Beef a couple times a week until it is gone.  This should help with my continual protein deficiency that always shows up in my blood tests.
