Dog Food Recipes, Beef Gravy
Dog food recipes can be fun, easy to make and most of all very nutritious for the dog but sometimes i just either get a little lazy or have no time. The recipe is perfect to make every once and a while and then you can store it in the freezer and pour over dried kibble for you dog when you having a lazy day.
- 2 Cups Of Water
- 1 Cup Of Flour
- Minimum 1 K(2Pound) Beef Roast
- 1 Cube Beef Stock
As with any stock you cant just ask the juices to come out from the beef. You have to slowly roast it on top of a tin based pan in the oven so that the juices drip into the pan and form the prime ingredient of the gravy. So the good new for you is that you get to have roast beef.
When choosing your roast look for something with a bit of fat on it and maybe for the sake of making a good gravy you can buy some beef bones which are great sources of flavor.
When cooking the roast you must cook it over a tin drip tray, most drip trays now days come with a grill that sits on top. After you have finished cooking your roast you can take your your drip tray and sit it on top of a heat protected surface. Pick out some of the extra white fatty bits and throw away as they wont mix well.
Before doing anything else, add your stock cube to some warm water, give it a mix and let it sit.
Put your tin tray onto a small heat. Begin scraping the bottom and sides for all the crispy bits of beef. Once you have scraped everything from the bottom and sides it now time to add some flour. Try not to use self raising flour.
Using a whisk, slowly add flour to the tin where your juicy beef remains lay and whisk it fast. Keep the stock water handy because if the mixture thickens to fast you will need to alternate and add some water. Keep doing this process of adding small amounts of flour and whisking fast. By the time the flour is finished the mixture should be pretty thick and now you can very slowly add the beef stock water over about 60 seconds.
The consistency of the mixture should be thicker then water yet still be able to drip. Think of a milk shake. For yourself you can add some pepper.
I usually pour these into freeze safe containers for my Lab. If you don’t have small serving containers you can take a small bowl and push some glad wrap(plastic wrap) into the centre of the bowl and pour a little of the gravy in, allow to cool and then twist the top and sit it in the freezer.
You can take these out at any time and stick them in the microwave for a minute and then pour over the dogs food.
