Grain-Free Beef Dog Food Treat

Recipe by Dreamer in Ontario

I found this great treat recipe on It's completely grain free making it wonderful for pets who are allergic to grains and for owners who prefer to minimize the amount of grain products their pets eat. Note: This recipe can also be a good homemade meal for your dog. Sept, 2008: I originally published this recipe as a treat recipe. Since it doesn't seem to hold together very well it's now been changed to a dog food recipe. When I get a chance to play around with it I'll see if it can be made into a treat recipe again. I would only give this to my dog in small portions as a treat or to add flavour to her regular food.

Dreamer - I don't know if I did something wrong but these treats did not set up for me. I was able to save a dozen treats for Libby but the rest just crumbled after baking. The treats I could save are still very soft even after cooling an hour so I'm concerned they are just going to break up too. It all is good as I just took the crumbles and sprinkled them into her dog bowl for breakfast and she is very for doggy treat taste 5 stars but for making into treats I'm going to leave this unrated until I have a chance to try them again.
