Last week the Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Pot Roast was on sale at Costco ($4.50 off!), so I decided to give it a try.


The Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Pot Roast is a full meal deal! The tray comes with beef, baby potatoes, turnips, beets, carrots, parsnips and onions. The vegetable mix is fairly potato-heavy with less of the other vegetables. When cooked, all of the vegetables came out really nice – soft yet firm (not mushy). The potatoes are seasoned well and pair nicely with the gravy that’s formed by adding water to the tray prior to putting it in the oven. The beef is hit or miss; some pieces were tender and fell apart easily while other pieces were tough and had a lot of fat and gristle on them. Although the dish is seasoned well, both my husband and I found there was a certain spice or seasoning that we didn’t care for but couldn’t quite identify. I analyzed the ingredients and wonder if it might have been the fish sauce. We enjoyed the meal for the most part, but probably wouldn’t purchase it at the regular price based on taste. There are definitely tastier pre-made meals at Costco.


We scored a deal by saving $4.50 off of the regular price ($21.50 Canadian for our tray, but it varies a bit with weight). The regular price isn’t overly expensive considering how convenient this meal is – it includes the sides as well as the protein, so you don’t really need anything else with it. I think you’d end up paying a similar amount to make pot roast from scratch, but you’d probably have a bigger portion if you went that route (i.e., leftovers). For the price, I prefer some of the other pre-made offerings from Costco like the Kirkland Signature Meat Lasagna.


All that I had to do to get the Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Pot Roast ready was add some water, cover the tray with foil and pop it in the oven. I didn’t even check on it while it was cooking! When my timer went off, I pulled it out of the oven and served it. Given how easy it is to heat up and the fact that you don’t need to worry about making sides to go with it, it’s a very convenient dinner option for busy nights!

Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Pot Roast Ingredients


There are a lot of ingredients on the list! For those with food allergies or sensitivities, please be aware that the pot roast includes some ingredients that you might not expect (for example, anchovy, wheat, sesame, soy and sulfites). One-sixth of the full meal contains 320 calories, 13 grams of fat, 27 grams of protein, six grams of sugar, three grams of fibre and 770 milligrams of sodium. That isn’t as bad as I thought it could be, but the sodium content is pretty high (which I expected). I don’t really see the point of adding sugar to the dish; it seems unnecessary and you don’t really taste it! 27 grams of protein is awesome, but you’d expect that with a meat-centric dish like this.

Overall, we didn’t dislike the Costco Kirkland Signature Beef Pot Roast, but we probably wouldn’t repurchase it again. As far as flavor and price go, I’d rather have the Costco Kirkland Signature Meat Lasagna or the Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Pot Pie! With that being said, this is a very convenient meal that does a decent job of mimicking a home-cooked version.

  1. Natalie, I find this to be overpriced and salty. You’re better off buying the pre-made pot roast in a pouch. Although at times they can be very salty too and the potatoes undercooked. There’s not much consistency. However, it goes on sale a few times a year at Costco.

  2. We had a similar experience, we really disliked whatever spice added that taste, and my husband actually refused to finish his meal. I soldiered on and finished but really disliked this meal. In fact, we had to throw out the remainder (there was enough left to easily give us a second meal), which I really hate yo do. Even the dog would not eat it. I’m actually glad to read that you felt the same. Unfortunate, as it could be a great time-saver.

  3. I agree about that one weird spice. I would have loved this except whatever it was. My beef was tender and the vegetables were very good, but ended up throwing out most of this because I just hated that spice.

  4. Yes tried this.. I would rate it a 6 out of 10. The meat itself was not bad.. the veggies were good, except the turnip? Was not cooked enough. I did not care for the gravy at all. It tasted too sweet for me. I would not buy this product again.

  5. I got it on sale as well, and I agree with Irene’s husband, it was inedible. The gravy was terrible. I washed the gravy off the meat and made pot roast sandwiches with the leftover meat, but we threw a large portion out as no one wanted to eat the leftovers.

  6. Hi there. I’m reading the comments and a lot of people are not liking whatever “secret” spice is in the pot roast dish. Since it is a Costco made entree, I was wondering if you could contact them and share the review comments with them – 5 out of 6 commenters would not purchase this again – that’s a pretty poor number. If I was Costco I would want to know about these concerns so I could fix them and potentially this could lead to more repeat sales. If most people don’t purchase an item again that is usually the kiss of death for a product! I have not even purchased the product – I was just looking at the review to see if I wanted to try it – and I don’t! Also, these other commenters, and myself will probably tell others to steer clear of this product – really unfortunate as Costco usually has some good quality, good tasting products. Thank you for all the great reviews you have done – keep up the great job!

  7. I bought this on sale, and I found it was more tasting like a beef stew than a beef roast. Gravy had a nutmeg taste or some kind of a strange spice that I couldn’t put my finger on. What ever it was made it taste off. Don’t think I will purchase this again.
