The Delicious Dog Dish: Molasses Ground Beef!

First time making this organic recipe and, I must say, it might be a fan favorite with

The Furry Gourmands!

YUM!

It’s almost like they knew I was cooking this meal just for them. Maybe I was giving off that “this is for you” vibe? Or perhaps I goo goo’ed the whole time about how much they were going to LOVE it. I had them licking their chops for sure 😉

This recipe is simple and will last my 2 large breed dogs 2 healthy portioned meals each (tonight’s dinner and tomorrow’s breakfast with some left over).

Here’s what I used::

1 lb Lean Ground Beef (grass fed, no hormones, etc)

2 cups Brown Rice (uncooked)

1/2 cup Flax Seed

1 large-ish Sweet Potatoe

4 tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or cold pressed Flaxseed Oil)

1 clove Garlic

2 tbs Molasses

sprinkle of Cinnamon

Cottage Cheese OR Plain Yogurt

Brown Rice w/ Flax Seed

While I was waiting for the rice to finish cooking (brown rice takes considerably longer than white rice), I’d placed the steamed sweet potatoe in the same pan as the ground beef and noticed 2 pairs of begging… BEGGING… eyes. I knew they’d insist on a taste… or 3. Their first ever (as far as I know) tast of sweet potatoe and they totally wanted more!

Once done, be sure to let everything cool COMPLETELY! I actually put their bowls in the fridge for about 15 minutes with intermittent stirring to hasten the cool down. I think this was the hardest part for both the girls and me. HA! I couldn’t wait to see how well they ate and they, of course, couldn’t wait to chow down.

As soon as I put their bowls down it was game on! Baby, my Husky mix foster, is a scarfer and she, well, scarfed it. Ellie, on the other hand, is a slower eater and barely let me drag the empty bowl away when she was done.

This meal is chalk full of healthy benefits. Follow the links to read more about some of the ingredients:: Holy Protein, Batman! Beef, Sweet Potatoe, and Cottage Cheese provide the main protein sources for this meal. Add to that Molasses, Brown Rice, and Flax Seed, and you’ve got a completely balanced meal for the average pup.

ENJOY!

Peanut Butter, Honey, and Oatmeal Dog Biscuits!

Peanut Butter, Honey, and Oatmeal Dog Biscuits!

After searching high and low for amazing dog food and doggy treat recipes, tweaking them, burning them a little (oops!), tasting myself, and having the Furry Gourmands scoff and, ultimately, approve, I’ve finally compiled a list (that I’m sure will continue to grow and evolve) of deliciously healthy pup treats! Last night’s batch of organic homemade dog biscuits turned out to be a hit!

I still want to make a few small adjustments to see how much more of a nutritional punch we can pack, as well as see what consistencies and textures are preferred by our doggy panelists 🙂 before I settle on this particular recipe, but we’ll keep the research going and the recipes growing for more more MORE hand crafted, all natural dog treats!
