Recipe: Beef Stew for Dogs

homemade dog food recipe albuquerqueEveryone loves stew in the winter, including your dog! Here is another recipe for homemade dog food, which can be a good alternative to canned dog food. This is an easy recipe and makes about 4 cups of dog food.

Please read our post and nutrition guide about cooking for your pet before you start making any homemade dog food recipe.

Shopping list

  • 1 lb of beef stew meat
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 1/2 cup of carrots, diced
  • 1/2 cup of green beans, diced
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of water or organic vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil for frying

You do not need to peel your carrots or potatoes unless you want to. The skins are good for you dog. I would recommend trimming the ends of your green beans if your are using fresh. The stems don’t cook very well.

  1. Dice the sweet potato. Boil the sweet potato for about 2-4 minutes. You want it to be firm but tender.
  2. Chop the stew meat so the pieces are about the size of a nickel.
  3. Heat 1 tbspĀ of vegetable oil in a pan. Add the stew meat and cook for 10-15 minutes until fully cooked (well-done). Save the drippings.
  4. Put your meat drippings over medium heat. Add the flour and water to the meat drippings to create a thick gravy.
  5. Add the rest of your ingredients to the gravy pan and stir to coat all the ingredients.
  6. Cook until your carrots are tender, about 10 minutes.
  7. Serve cool

You can store this in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can also freeze this recipe.

Always check with your Albuquerque veterinarian about your pet’s dietary needs before making your own dog food.
