Simple Beef Dinner
Grain & gluten-free beef recipe
Homemade dog food doesn’t get any simpler. Whatever beef you happen to have to hand, whatever vegetables you can lay your paws on, a spoonful of our Beef Herb Blend for vitamins and minerals, some oil and a little of our Eggshell Powder for essential calcium. Simples!
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.
There’s no reason why this simple recipe would not be just as suitable for you and your family. Our Beef Herb Blend, made only with the finest human grade ingredients, gives the meal a terrific flavour. Just bulk it up with some extra vegetables if necessary and it’s ready to go.
- 400g (14oz) Beef Mince ideally low-fat
- 67g (2 ½oz) Potatoes unpeeled, finely diced
- 53g (2oz) Carrots unpeeled, finely diced
- 53g (2oz) Broccoli diced, including stem
- 40g (1 ½oz) Peas frozen
- 27g (1oz) Tomatoes fresh, diced
- 27g (1oz) Apple unpeeled, cored, diced
- 1/2g (tiny pinch) Salt
- 3g (1 level tablespoon) Beef Herb Blend
- 4g (1 level teaspoon) Eggshell Powder
- 34ml (2 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Preheat oven to 180C/Fan 160C/Gas Mark 4. Add the vegetables to a casserole dish with approximately 285ml (½ pint) of water. (We used the nutrient-rich vegetable water saved from our own meal the previous evening). Add the beef mince, blend in the salt, Beef Herb Blend, salmon oil and Eggshell Powder. Cover and place in oven for approximately 1¼ hours stirring occasionally. Top up with water as necessary. 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.
