The Kirkland Signature Steak Strips at Costco are one of the best meat snacks you are going to find in the store.  The steak strips are extra thick cut pieces of jerky sliced from the Top Round roast.

Summary Review

The Kirkland steak strips have a lot going for them with very few negatives.

On the Positive Side

  • Acceptable Flavor
  • Great Value
  • Nice Texture

On the Negative Side

  • Added Sugar is not Keto Friendly


The Kirkland Steak Strips are the best meat snack that I have ever bought at the store.  I happily buy these whenever I am in the mood for a jerky type snack.

Taste Test

The Kirkland steak strips are very good and exactly what I was looking for in a tasty meat snack.

You get large pieces of meat for each strip that are tender but still have some chew.  The beef is well seasoned with a nice balance of spiciness balanced by just a touch of sweet.

The pieces look like they were actually cut from a beef roast instead of being processed together from a pile of meat scraps.

There is nothing magical about the flavor or texture.  This is simply a nice, consistent, flavorful meat snack with no surprises.

Compared to Other Brands

I have tried two other brands of steak bites from Costco and greatly prefer the Kirkland product.

Snake River Farms sells Wagyu Steak Strips at Costco but I found them to be too greasy and sweet for my taste.

Lorissa’s Kitchen also sells steak bites at Costco but I found their product to be overly sweet and tenderized.

Between the three brands I really feel like the Kirkland’s product is the best.

Nutrition and Calories

One ounce of product is a single serving and has the following calories and nutritional information.

  • Calories: 60
  • Fat: 0.5g (1% DV)
  • Cholesterol: 10mg (3% DV)
  • Sodium: 330mg (14% DV)
  • Carbohydrates: 5g (2% DV)
  • Protein: 9g

This jerky is low calorie, low carb and relatively low sodium.

There is mixed agreement on whether these steak bites are keto friendly.  On one hand they product only contains 5g of carbs per serving but on the other it does contain some added sugars.

If you are looking for a jerky that has zero added sugars then check out the Zero Sugar Tillamook Jerky at Costco instead.

The steak strips are labeled as Gluten Free.

You can buy a 12 ounce bag of Member’s Mark Steak Strips from Walmart for $22.80 which works out to a cost of $1.90 per ounce.

This means that you will save $0.93 per ounce (49%) when you buy the steak strips at Costco.
