Easy Beefy Bites

Did you know June is national beef steak month?  Well apparently it is and that makes a perfect time to make these treats from the Whole Dog Journal.  

They have an exhaustive ingredient sure to make any dog drool: Beef Steak.
We used london broil since its reasonably price. 

All you do is trim any large pieces of fat from the meat and then cut it into smallish cubes with a sharp knife.  Put those cubes on a foil lined baking sheet and put in a 175 degree oven.   Leave the meat in the oven for about 6 hours, or even longer, stirring them around with a spatula periodically.  The goal is to make the beef chunks completely dry.   I turn of my oven and leave them in over night to really cement the drying process.  Of course if you have a food dehydrator you can make these in a jiffy with that.   Serve the treats to any dogs in the vicinity and June is sure to become their favorite month.

Don't worry Norbert and Bob got beef treats too, but mom liked the pugs beef expectant faces.


  1. That's too easy not to try!

    Such cute little puggy faces!

  2. What a great idea! I have been toying with the idea of buying a dehydrator, but this seems super easy. Would you need to store the treats in the fridge?

  3. We must really give this dehydrating a go. It is so versatile. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  14. Your steak looks like the profile of a bears' head :) My friend makes similar treats but she slices the steaks. She likes to bring it on hikes because both her and her dogs can eat it.
