If you’re up to making a nutritious home cooked meal for your dog (and don’t want to worry about what’s in your pet’s food), here’s a great recipe from Arden Moore’s “Real Food For Dogs” (Thanks Seattle PI for the tip!).
Makes 2 Servings
2 beef hearts
1 cup white or brown rice
1/4 cup bread crumbs
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
1 cup water
1/2 cup finely grated carrot
1/2 cup finely grated turnip
In a small saucepan, combine the hearts and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 17 minutes.
While the hearts are boiling, cook rice.
Drain the hearts and chop into small pieces. Transfer the pieces to a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Allow to cool before serving.
Sounds easy enough and I’m sure your dog will love you for cooking him his own special meal! After you’re done cooking for him, make yourself a gourmet frozen food dinner.
