Beef Crunchies

I have made these several times..they are easy and the best part is they smell DELICIOUS as you make them. Reminds me of pot roast or something as fall is coming up soon

also, they are all beef, which is good, and less expensive to make than what you would buy at a pet store for equal quality. You can also mess around with what kind of meat you use, I use lean stew meat like the recipe says, so low in fat for the dogs to. I also use more than 1 lb of meat to make more sometimes.

I saw the original recipe in "Cooking for Your Dog" by Ingeborg Pils, but found an identical one here from http://recipes4gourmetdogs.com/?p=32

quote from site above "BEEF CRUNCHIES


1 pound lean stewing beef



Dice the meat into half-inch cubes. Cover a boking sheet with baking parchement and place the cubes of meat on it, close together. Put into a cold oven and heat to 300 degrees F. Cook the meat in the oven for 1 hour.

Reduce the oven temperature to 210 degrees F and prop open the oven door to allow the moisture to escape. Dry the cubes of meat in the oven for a further 2 hours.

Allow the beef crunchies to dry overnight at room temperature.

The crunchies will keep for up to a year in an airtight container in the fridge - If your dog will allow" end quote

Hope your dogs like them as ours do!

Re: Beef Crunchies

My dogs would be spoiled by these and not accept any others. LOL. Could be trouble for me.
Sounds like they would LOVE these.

Re: Beef Crunchies

Re: Beef Crunchies

uh, maybe? I am not sure how beef jerky is made?!!! lol

Probably cheaper than buying at the store though...but maybe not.

anyway, pretty easy and all you need is to buy some stew meat... more fun than buying at the store..and you get to know everything that goes into it..which is just the meat

Try it

Re: Beef Crunchies

I planned on it, but I think I would marinade it first to allow a stronger flavor as it dries.

Re: Beef Crunchies

I do not marinate it at all, just use the meat.
If you are using lean stew meat...trust me when you smell the house while it is cooking you do not need marinade! Yum! Especially in the fall when it is chilly outside.

Make sure to cook it on parchment paper like mentioned in the recipe so it dries out.
