Looking for a St. Patrick’s Day celebration in our home on March 17th? If so, it’s likely you are thinking corned beef. It is the food most of us think of when we think of this day, despite it not being an Irish thing!
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
In 2022, I am finding USDA choice corned beef at Costco for $4.79/lb. Price may vary depending on where you are, but I expect it to be under $5/lb everywhere.
When it comes to corned beef at Costco the selections is going to vary depending on where you are in the country. In Michigan, I have seen the Sy Ginsberg’s Corned Beef, which is made in Detroit. Other stores I have seen Paddy O’Neills, which is made in Colorado.
This year I found Shenson Corned Beef in a California Costco store going for $4.79/lb. Shenson is packed in San Jose.
HOW EARLY CAN YOU BUY IT?
Shortly after Valentine’s Day, you should be able to find corned beef ready to buy at Costco.
BRISKET VS. ROUND
Speaking of the Shenson Corned Beef it is different than other corned beef I have found in the past at Costco. It’s made from round, not brisket. Maybe it’s a California thing?
Most of the time when you are buying corned beef you are choosing between flat and point cut brisket. But in this case, you are getting beef from the round or back end of the cow.
Does it matter? Well, round is leaner than brisket. The meat has a different texture, which makes brisket better for corned beef. Not to say you shouldn’t give corned beef round a try, but I wouldn’t ever pick it over brisket.
HOW TO COOK
Whatever corned beef you buy at Costco will come with instructions. You can do low and slow in a slow cooker, cook it in a cast iron Dutch oven on the stove top or inside the oven, or do what we do an make corned beef in the Instant Pot. Our Instant Pot recipe makes corned beef that is sliceable without just falling apart – perfect for a sandwich.
⏲️ Instant Pot Cooking Time – 1 hour 25 minutes at high pressure with a natural release for a brisket around 4 pounds.
Whatever you do, don’t cook the cabbage together with the corned beef. It will be mushy and smell up the whole kitchen – not in a good way. I always cook it separately, sometimes I even combine it with mashed potatoes to make Irish colcannon.
If you are looking for convenience, you can get an already cooked corned beef at Costco. One store I went to had Bill Bailey’s Fully Cooked Corned Beef Round for $6.99/lb. Again with the beef round!
MAKE YOUR OWN
If you are interested in corning your own beef, then Costco is a great place to go. They have a great price on brisket. You can buy a whole USDA prime brisket for under $6 per pound, which is a great deal. It is a lot of meat, I would cut off what you need for now and freeze the rest unless you are really ambitious with your corned beef making.
If you don’t want as much meat, you can get just a flat cut brisket portion for $11.99/lb. Clearly it’s cheaper by the pound to buy the whole prime brisket.
USDA PRIME CORNED BEEF BRISKET
Just imagine serving your family and guests corned beef that is moist and so tender it is beyond compare. And you cooked it yourself! Say goodbye to dry, tough corned beef.
