Costco Pork Deals of the Week!

Costco Logo

I am excited to be working with Costco to celebrate National Pork Month! Throughout the month Costco is featuring all kinds of awesome deals on pork products as well as fantastic family-friendly recipes everyone can make. To kick things off, this week Costco is celebrating by knocking $2.00 off a package of Boneless Sirloin Tip Roast. An intensely flavorful pork cut available only through Costco, the sirloin tip roast is ideal for feeding a crowd on a dime. I use this particular cut all the time in the winter and on Friday I’ll be sharing an awesome recipe using this cut in the slow-cooker. That’s right – it is slow-cooker season (yeah!)

I’ll also be celebrating the Friday post with a $25 Costco cash giveaway so you can go pick up a boneless sirloin tip roast of your own so be sure to stay tuned for that. In the mean time, here are some more great recipes and tips for you to read up on!

  • Costco’s “In The Warehouse” website provides flavorful recipes and tips for preparing each week’s featured cut of pork. Check back weekly for fun, new information on Costco’s featured cuts!
  • Another great resource for pork recipes is PorkBeInspired.com. They feature recipes for all kinds of pork cuts, including the boneless sirloin tip that is featured this week!
  • Don’t forget the temperature Update:  In May, the USDA reduced the temperature guideline for pork loins, chops and roasts from 160 to 145 degrees F, with a three-minute rest. This will yield a juicy, flavorful product that may be pinker in color than most home cooks are used to. Ground pork, like all ground meat, should be cooked to 160 degrees.
