Dodecanese Minced Beef Stew

Grain & gluten free beef recipe

Beef mince, beef heart & beef liver combine with potatoes, tomatoes, chickpeas, spinach and apples to make a Greek-style beef stew for dogs.

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. It shouldn’t even need any further seasoning – just perhaps some potatoes and some extra veg. 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.

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

Soak chickpeas overnight in 284ml (½ pint) of water. Cook chickpeas. When cooked, drain water into a saucepan in readiness for the meat. Blend chickpeas with a little of their cooking water and set aside. 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 until the meat turns brown and any liquid is clear. Drain any liquid into the vegetable pan and set cooked meat aside. Add vegetables to pan, longest cooking times first – potatoes followed 5 minutes later by spinach, tomatoes, garlic and apple. When cooked (after about 3 minutes), turn off heat and add chickpeas. After about 5 minutes, add Eggshell Powder, salt and olive oil to vegetables and then blend all 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.
