Things I Like About Kirkland Steak Strips
The strips are cured and dried. The beef is seasoned with brown sugar, peach puree, hickory smoke, garlic, onion, and vinegar. And the cut is actually top round steak. All of these seasonings combine to give a nice smokey taste with just a hint of sweetness.
Almost No Fat!
Among the many low carb options, including expensive organic brands, I’d vote for these Steak Strips as a great break from the typical “low carb = load up on fat” eating habit that many of us have.
The strips are easy to eat without the guilt. My stomach is somewhat sensitive, and no matter how much I try to cut down on high gluten foods, I always find it sneaking into the foods that I eat. I always get irritation if I eat that kind of food too much but not with these strips. And heck, this might be kind of strange to some folks, but if you’re like me and wind up going through 3 or 4 bags of these in a row, you can soak these in some water a bit to loosen them up and toss them in a salad or 2. It’s pretty simple and adds some variety to an otherwise repetitive task.
Things I Don’t Like About Kirkland Steak Strips
The strips come in little plastic bags of 12 1 oz servings for $15.79. Compared to a similar product like Baken-ets Fried Pork skins which come as 6 bags of 3.5 oz for $12.00, these strips are a tad pricey. The strips average out to $1.32 per ounce versus $0.57 per ounce for the pork skins.
The Kirkland Steak Strips are delicious and very low on the guilt-scale. However, they can be tad pricey especially considering all the other low carb options available. If you are looking for a treat or a break from eating the same foods day in and day out, give these Strips a try because they are a decent buy for the price.
