Miss Lucinda's Lovely Stew
A Guide To Happy, Healthy Pups
Through the years I have experimented with a variety of foods and mixtures. Trial and error has resulted in the perfect mix.
It takes less than an hour to make a 10-14 day batch which works out to about $2 to $3 per day, with two meals daily.
We're sharing the recipe so that all pups can be healthy pups!
- 1 kilo lean ground beef
- ½ kilo beef heart, bite-size cubes
- 2 cups rice
- ½ kilo 9-grain cereal
- 2-3 large carrots, grated
- 2-3 cups beets, grated
- 3-4 apples, peeled and grated
- In a large pot, cook grains as directed on package, usually 8-10 minutes.
- While grains are on the go cook ground beef - then add to grains when done.
- Cook beef heart and add to grain-beef mixture, stir well.
- Grate vegetables and apples and add to the mixture. Fold in and stir well.
- Fold in cooked rice and stir well.
- Let cool slightly and then put meal-size portions into freezer bags and freeze. There are usually about 20 portions.
For Lucinda, being a large dog of about 100 pounds, portions are about one cup of food, twice a day. Portions are frozen until ready to serve. Adjust portions to best fit your dog.
