Our dogs LOVE homemade beef jerky a lot!
They go bat shit crazy when we have a batch brewing in the food dehydrator. Vitto loves to be the “palace guard” protecting “Queen Beef Jerky” whenever we have a batch cooking.
It makes absolutely zero sense to buy beef jerky treats at the pet store:
Reason #1 is cost savings! You are paying $10-20 a pound for chicken or beef jerky treats. I find super thin sliced beef shoulder clod or beef chuck at the Mexican market for less than $3 a pound on sale.
Reason #2 is safety! You do NOT know what is in the packaged beef jerky treats you buy at the store and what country the ingredients are sourced from.
Homemade beef jerky for your dogs is so inexpensive and best of all you know you are serving your pups human grade food!
To make homemade beef jerky for dogs:
1 scoop Clear Conscience Super Gravy mixed with 1/2 cup water for marinade
Slice beef into strips & pieces appropriately sized for your dog’s breed
Dredge beef in Super Gravy marinade
Set on food dehydrator rack
Dehydrate according to manufacturer instructions. Usually 4-8 hours on the meat setting for my Nesco dehydrator.
