Beef & Tomato Hotpot
Grain & gluten free beef recipe
Just the right amount of muscle meat, exactly the correct ratio of nutrient-rich liver combined with a variety of fresh fruit & vegetables. Your dog will love you for it!
If you’re still feeding your dog commercial dog food, we would suggest using this meal as a dressing or topping by combining the two over the course of three or four days. Reduce your dog’s other food accordingly so as to avoid unhealthy weight gain.
This recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family. Our Beef Herb Blend gives the meal a wonderful flavour that we certainly enjoyed. Just add some extra vegetables and perhaps some mashed potatoes for yourself and your family. Both beef heart and beef liver are extremely nutrient-rich, but if you don’t fancy those yourself, cook them separately and add them to your dog’s food just before apportioning. Do the same with the Eggshell Powder, safflower and salmon oil. That said, you could certainly try it with the safflower oil which aside from being good for you, has a fairly neutral flavour.
- 1kg (2lb 3oz) Beef Mince
- 100g (3 ½oz) Beef (Ox) Heart diced
- 50g (1 ¾oz) Beef (Ox) Liver diced
- 192g (7oz) Potatoes skin on, finely diced
- 114g (4oz) Tomatoes skin on, diced
- 114g (4oz) Carrots skin on, finely diced
- 96g (3 ½oz) Parsnips skin on, finely diced
- 87g (3oz) Peas frozen
- 87g (3oz) Cabbage diced
- 80g (2 ¾oz) Celery diced complete with leaves
- 1g (small pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
- 8g (2 heaped tablespoons) Beef Herb Blend
- 12g (2 ½ level teaspoons) Eggshell Powder
- 35ml (2 tablespoons) Safflower Oil
- 35ml (2 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Add beef mince and Beef Herb Blend to a pan with 285ml (½ pint) of water. Cook on a low heat for approximately 5 minutes before adding heart and liver. Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until the meat turns brown and any liquid is clear. Drain liquid into the vegetable pan and set cooked meat aside. Add vegetables to pan, longest cooking times first – carrots followed 5 minutes later by potatoes, parsnips and peas. When cooked, turn off heat and add cabbage, celery and tomatoes. After about 5 minutes, add Eggshell Powder, salt, salmon oil and safflower oil and then blend the ingredients together. Allow to cool before apportioning and/or serving. Either freeze what you don’t immediately need or keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
