How to Serve Costco’s Corned Beef Brisket

The traditional ways of using the corned beef are:

  • Serving with stewed cabbage, potatoes, onions and carrots.
  • Slicing the meat to make a pile of Reuben sandwiches.
  • Dicing the meat and cooking with onions and potatoes to make corned beef hash and serving with eggs.

I decided to give things a twist by making corned beef tacos with a cabbage and carrot Cole slaw that were topped with a touch of cream style horseradish.

The meat was incredibly flavorful and super tender while the crunchy cabbage slaw provided a nice textural contrast.

Price of Morton’s Corned Beef at Costco

The corned beef costs $5.99 per pound.  The package I bought weighed 3.51 pounds for a price of $21.02.

While almost $6 per pound for a brisket flat is a little bit on the expensive side it isn’t unreasonable.  If you want to save some money then you can probably find some better prices at your local grocery store around St Patrick’s day and stock up your freezer.
