Beef Heart Jerky for Dogs

READY IN: 20hrs 10mins
Recipe by Axe1678

Beef heart is highly nutritious and in this area is very cheap and sometimes free. I cut the slices at least 1/2" thick so the pups can chew it for a while.

Dogs went nuts for this! I cut some into smaller pieces, 1-2" square so they dried into small training size bits and left some bigger. I had the heart from a beef order I get annually so I was happy to find a great use for it. I only had to do about 6-8 hrs in my dehydrator, depending on piece size. I froze half, but it was all gone pretty quickly. I'd much rather give them this than store-bought biscuits

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the heart in 1/2" by 1/2" strips.
  2. sprinkle with a light dusting of garlic powder if using.
  3. place on dehydrator trays with plenty of room between the strips.
  4. dehydrate at 150F for approximately 20 hours.
  5. If you don't own a dehydrator, this can be done in your oven on it's lowest setting with the oven door propped open an inch or two.
