The RED bag burgers! My favorite beef burgers from Costco
Please note that this review was not paid for or sponsored by any third party. I purchased this product with my own money and the opinions in this review are strictly my own. I am not affiliated with Costco or any of its suppliers. I am just a fan of the company. I write these reviews to help my fellow shoppers.
First off, my mom’s homemade burgers are the best burgers ever, but even my mom and dad buy these burgers when my mom does not feel like making her own. I have not mastered making my own homemade burgers (and I am a little lazy) so we buy these over and over again and they always make perfectly delicious burgers. I love burgers, you can do so much with them by changing the toppings slightly. I’ve even had a burger with peanut butter and jam on it. Anyways I want to share this Costco find because I truly think it’s one of Costco’s best items. This is Important, do NOT buy the blue bag burgers, they are not nearly as good or even good in my opinion. I am only talking about the red bag, sirloin burgers in this review, if you buy the blue bag you will be like “Natalie what were you talking about saying these are delicious”.
These burgers are super simple. They have one ingredient, sirloin beef. Yep, that’s it. No salt, no fillers, no seasoning. Just lean sirloin beef. For those following a “clean” diet, how much cleaner does it get really? These burgers don’t need extra fillers or seasonings when they’re using high quality beef. Basically I had a tiny bit of seasoning, salt and pepper usually, sometimes a dab or barbecue sauce and these burgers taste amazing. The reason why they taste so good is because I can control what seasonings and sauces I want and also because the beef is actually really good beef. I look forward to eating these every time we have them.
You get 18 beef burgers in sturdy, sealed a bag, each patty is stacked one on top of the other with parchment paper between. Basically if you want to cook one burger for yourself, you totally can. They do not come in a box which in my opinion makes it easier to store in the freezer but can make resealing them to prevent freezer burn slightly inconvenient. My husband hates freezer burned anything so he was at one point duct taping these. Now we divide the big bag up into separate ziplock bags which makes it super easy. You have to season and cook these, they don’t come pre seasoned or pre cooked. So they’re not the most convenient item Costco carries.
Eating burgers all day, every day probably is not the best thing for you nutritionally. However if you had to pick between these burgers or a big mac. Honestly this is the far healthier choice. You can control your sodium and sauce. 1 pattie is 320 calories, 23 grams of fat and 29 grams of protein. You can use lettuce as a bun if you’re super health conscious or even put these in a wrap. I like to use the Costco Italian Style Ciabatta Buns with these. The fat may seem a little high but any ground beef usually has higher amounts of fat and I think some of it cooks off when barbecued. Compared to a restaurant burger at 1200 calories for just the burger and bun and not even your sides, this is a far healthier option and tastes better in my opinion.
Honestly I recommend you try these burgers out, especially if you’re going camping, hosting a party or barbecue or have a family that loves burgers as much as I do.
What’s the most unique burger you have ever had?
