Slow-Cooked Diced Lamb Dinner
Grain & gluten free lamb recipe
Diced lamb, lambs heart & lambs liver combined with what we had available at the time with added chickpeas.
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.
With the addition of something like mashed potatoes and perhaps some runner or French beans, this recipe would be just as nourishing for you and your family. We tried it and thoroughly enjoyed it. It didn’t even need any extra seasoning. Both lambs heart and lambs 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 and the salmon oil.
- 500g (1lb 2oz) Diced Lamb ideally lean
- 50g (1 ¾oz) Lamb Heart diced
- 25g (1oz) Lamb Liver diced
- 96g (3 ½oz) Sweet Potatoes skin on, finely diced
- 86g (3oz) Chickpeas soaked, halved or blended
- 77g (2 ¾oz) Butternut Squash peeled, finely diced
- 76g (2 ¾oz) Spinach finely chopped
- 48g (1 ¾oz) Tomatoes skin on, finely diced
- 1g (small pinch) Himalayan Rose Pink Salt
- 4g (1 heaped tablespoon) Lamb Herb Blend
- 10g (2 level teaspoons) Eggshell Powder
- 70ml (4 tablespoons) Salmon Oil
Soak chickpeas overnight in 284ml (½ pint) of water. Add the meat and the chickpeas together with the Lamb Herb Blend and the salt to a slow cooker with the chickpea water. Cook for 1 hour before adding the vegetables. Peel the butternut squash but don’t peel the sweet potatoes or the tomatoes. Add the remaining vegetables to the slow cooker, stir in with the meat and the chickpeas and cook for a further hour. Turn off the slow cooker, remove the bowl from the heat, add the Eggshell Powder and salmon oil and 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.
