HOW TO COOK BEEF STEW FOR DOGS
This dog food recipe is very similar to a humans in that the beef is seared, then added to vegetables and boiled in a pot.
The biggest difference in this homemade dog food recipe to ours is that there is no stock. When cooking a stew for a dog, avoid any stock cubes or stock as it is of no benefit to the dog. The stock may have ingredients such as garlic or onions that are not advisable to be consumed by dogs.
This recipe could be cooked in an instant pot or slow cooker too.
The broccoli can be swapped with peas or green beans.
Store the leftover beef stew in the fridge in a sealed container. It should last for 3 days.
Leftovers can be frozen. Defrost thoroughly before warming to serve.

even without making this yet, i know it will be a 5star bc i follow your human recipes & they've never failed me. always "divalicious"! I've read thru all of them & forgive me if i'm overlooking my answer, but how much is a serving amt? (other than the treats) i see some make 10 servings or 6 med servings, but does that equal to 1 & 1/2 c or less? i'm new to this but so hate the dry dog food that causes such tummy problems for our "pack". thank you for all the time and effort you put into your work & again forgive me if i'm overlooking something so obvious
Linda, you made my day with your kind comments! I serving is a cup. I meant to put it into the recipe card but forget. I really must stop posting late at night! I'll update the card! Thanks for posting too!
Oh my gosh, thank you for responding so quickly. I so get late night thinking, or actually, lack thereof. That info helps so much. My plan is to try them all as soon as i figure out their calorie intake amt this week. i promise to comment bc i so love learning from others when they have constructive helpful comments & suggestions. Again, thanks.

Thank you for the recipe, i made this and my dog and he LOVED IT! I do have a question, in the recipe you call for one broccoli, is that one crown of broccoli? i wasn't sure so i substituted some peas in place.
Hi Derrick! Delighted your dog loved it! The broccoli was one head/crown. About a medium sized one.
