    It's not at teh Glenview, IL store either. They now carry similar cuts in the same packaging under the Solomon's label. No idea what led to the change. The Colorado Glatt was excellent and they always ran out quickly at the store (we grilled a LOTof steaks this summer).

      theyre carrying the solomon stuff b us too, and its just kinda eh, theres a lot of blood running out of the packet when we open it, and the taste isnt as rich and beefy as the colorado stuff

      do u find that its comparable?

        Shoelace, it's flesh colored water, not blood in the package. If that was blood running out of the package then the meat wouldn't be kosher.

          yea, that makes logical sense, and im embarrased to say i actually checked the packaging to see if it was somehow not salted, but just the flood of stuff that comes out of the package grosses me out, and honestly, i feel like its the moisture running out of the meat

          they had these packaged chuck steaks, two squares in each costco package, each square had 2 steaks, and they were outrageous, like a really great rib steak

            We had the Solomon's steaks and they looked similar but didn't have the same flavor (maybe my memory is enhancing the Colorado Glatt experience?). The Colorado steaks we had over the summer were awesome. We always grilled extras but the kids ended up finishing them at their midnight 2nd dinner.

          IT IS COMPATABLE ALTHOUGH I CAN'T ARGUE ABOUT THE BLOOD OR MOISTNESS YOU SEE. THE REASON THE BEEF AT COSTCO IS BETTER BECAUSE THEY ONLY OFFER DOMESTIC USDA CHOICE GRADE. GENERALLY THE KOSHER MARKET DOES NOT GRADE SO YOU CAN BE BUYING ANY GRADE ELSEWHERE, CHOICE GRADE WILL BE JUCIER, FATTIER AND TASTIER.

            comparable, not compatable, side note, the brands being carried at costco now are all usda, and not anywhere near as good

          Brooklyn Costco doesn't have the Colorado Glatt meat either- it's all Solomon's.

          I didn't buy anything, but the case was totally full- never seen that before on a Sunday in Costco

            COLORADO BEEF FROM DENVER WENT BROKE. THEY ARE NO LONGER CAPABLE TO SERVICE COSTCO OR ANYBODY ELSE.

              That is true--Colorado Kosher is no longer in business... I am native Coloradan, and it has been very sad for us to see Colorado Kosher go.

              Also, because Kosher Meat is so expensive in general, a lot of suppliers will try and cut costs and they do so by buying a very poor quality of meat--hence it is rarely any good.

                  Locally in Chicago, Solomon's Kosher Meats are in Glenview IL and now in there new location in Mettawa Illinois (near Hawthorne Shopping Center) located at the Tri-State Tollway and Townline Road.

                  In addition, I went last night to this brand new store and they actually have some Kosher Cholov Yisroel Cheese form MK and even have Pizza Bagels that are Pas Yisroel Cholov Yisroe! What a pleasant surprise.

                  Yummy...may we presume that are affiliated with Costco professionally? If so...thank you for finally getting the yellow american cheese in stock. (Hackensack)

                  Maybe we should start a separate Costco request thread.

                  How about getting the big containers of soy-nut butter?

                    Is this referring to Golden West in CO? I have bought from them previously but they too seem to be out of business?

                      I believe that they were different companies but I could be wrong. If both are gone then it's another sad turn of events on the Kosher front.
