Homemade Stew For Your Dogs

Homemade Stew For Your Dogs

Making healthy food for your dogs doesn’t have to be difficult, time consuming or even expensive.

This crock pot stew is quick and easy, healthy for your dogs and best of all it only cost us about $10!

Here’s what you need:

3 pounds of ground beef (pre-cook so you can drain the fat before placing in the crock pot)
1/2 pound beef liver (cut into small pieces)
1 carrot (chopped into small pieces)
1 cup frozen peas (or green beans)
1 apple (remove the core and seeds, cut into small pieces)
1/2 cup chopped spinach (we used frozen)
1 cup rice
1/3 cup chopped parsley
pinch of salt for taste
1 tbsp olive oil

Put everything in the crock pot, set to low for about 8 hours.

When done, package into small containers so that you will only have 2-3 days worth of food in the fridge at a time. Freeze containers (except for 1 you’ll have in the fridge for feeding) and retrieve when needed.

It’s that simple!

And how did we do all this for only $10?! Well, the rice we always have in the house, but the rest of the ingredients we purchased from our local Asian market. First, these are the best places to find organ meat . . . not all grocery stores in our area carry this. Secondly, their prices are way below traditional grocery stores. Finally, we find that the meats at the Asian markets are typically much fresher than those in our big box grocery stores.

Give it a try and let me know how your dogs like it!

      Just make sure to check the meat for freshness. Typically Asian markets have fresher meats than most other grocery stores because they do such high volumes.
