Home made treat recope for training

Do any of you perhaps have a recipe for good, high value home made dog treats that I can use for training?

Slices of roast beef, roast chicken, cut into little treat size pieces using scissors.

for training, something easy to swallow. Small lightly cooked chicken and beef. Scissors, like Dunkirk posted, worked easier than knives sometimes. And yes, I will sometimes use a decent quality hotdog if I want something easy to handle during a hike.

Items needed:
Non Stick Fry Pan
Large Round Steak or
Pork Chops or
Calves Liver

or Lamb or Goat
or any whole meats
(dense meat) your dog can eat.

1. Trim off all fat on the edges and in-between and if it has bone, remove that too. If using Calves Liver, thaw, and blot well with paper towel to remove excess blood.
2. Take a pair of scissors (outstanding tool for cutting meat) and cut the meat into manageable pieces.
3. Choose a fry pan (non stick works the easiest) that will hold the amount of meat you bought, and give the pan a small drop of oil or a quick spray of Pam.
4. Heat the pan until really hot and drop in the meat pieces in to sizzle. Keep your heat high but don’t leave the pan unattended.
5. Sprinkle on a little garlic powder or garlic salt if desired.
6. Let it sizzle for about a minute or two then flip over. Braise the other side (pour off the juice if there is too much) and remove from pan when the middle is pink (especially the Liver or it will crumble). Place on to paper towel, blot and let cool.
7. Take your scissors and cut all of the meat in strips about ¼” wide. Now take those strips and cut small pieces about the size of a ½ of a dime, (or whatever size you prefer).
8. Place small amounts into sealable snack baggies, then place those baggies into a sealable freezer baggie and place in freezer. When you need them, take out one or two baggies, place them in the frig and they will un-thaw. Of course the dogs love them frozen too, if you forget! They will unthaw quickly on the cupboard or in your pocket for training.
The process takes a little time but saves a lot of $$ and the dogs go crazy for them!

Is there perhaps a recipe for making or baking something as I dont want to give meats as mentioned here, because here in SA our dogs get poisoned using those kinds of meat, hot dogs etc.
