Doggie Beef Stew Recipe

homemade dog food beef stewThis is a great homemade recipe as an alternative to store bought dog food. After it has been made it can stay in your fridge for a week. This recipe makes about 4 cups.
1 lb of beef stew meat
1 small sweet potato
1/2 cup of diced carrots
1/2 cup of diced green beans
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of water or organic vegetable oil
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil for frying

Boil the diced sweet potatoes for about 4-6 minutes. They should be firm but tender, not mushy. Hold the carrots and green beans for later. Cut the stew meat into smaller pieces. When you buy stewing beef the pieces are often quite big, so you need to cut them into smaller pieces to make it easier for your dog to chew. Do not add any spices to the beef, just cook it in a tablespoon of vegetable oil over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. The meat should be well done. Keep the drippings for later.  Add flower and water into the drippings. Whisk constantly to create a thick gravy. You can add a little bit of water to the flower first before adding it to the drippings to reduce clumping. Once you have the gravy, add the meat, sweet potato, carrots and green beans. Cook for 10 minutes, or until the carrots are tender.

Let the dish cool before serving.

Store up to 5 days in the fridge. You can freeze this as well.

This is a great and simple recipe you can make for your dog. Always make sure to check with your local Albuquerque veterinarian before starting your dog on any new diet. The vet may give you some tips of things to add, or remove, from your recipe plan.
