Mixed Protein Medley
I don’t generally mix protein sources when cooking for my dogs. But I had beef mince defrosting the morning these nutritious lamb delicacies landed in my lap. So what else does a girl do?
3 x Homemade Beef Recipes to tickle the taste buds of your best friend. Easy-to-make, nutritious and tasty recipes so good, you could eat them too!
Cooked this meat recipe for dogs in my largest slow-cooker on low for 2 hours and then topped it off with my Dog Chef Daily superfood supplement, some Dog Chef Calcium and a drizzle of omega-3-rich salmon oil for added goodness.
Like I say, I don’t generally mix protein sources when I cook for Marco and Ava. It’s not a hard-and-fast rule or anything. It’s just that I generally stick to the same protein source in any given meal. Although, thinking about it, I do sometimes add a tin of sardines if one of the portions is a little light. With this meat recipe for dogs though I thought I’d do something a little different.
If I’m batch-cooking fish meals for my dogs, anything goes. Sardines, salmon, cod, haddock, tuna, mussels, mackerel, whatever I happen to have to hand goes in my trusty slow-cooker when the veggies are almost done.
Anyway, the beef mince and liver were on the menu the day I was handed a few kilos of fresh, whole lamb heart and tongue. So, why not, I thought? I’m sure Marco and Ava won’t complain.
And guess what? They didn’t. They didn’t even have time to say “thanks mum.” They just wolfed it down as usual!
