Crunchy Beef Sticks for Dogs

A nice homemade batch of crunchy beef sticks for dogs!  Made with only 4 easy ingredients and real beef pieces you can see.  The ingredients needed are: cooked – unseasoned ground meat, water, an egg and flour.  Form into a dough and shape into a 14 inch x 5 inch rectangle.  Cut into one inch slices and bake.

 The dogs went crazy for these crunchy beef sticks!  They were making circles around me, while taking pictures.  All I could hear, were the dogs nails tapping and clicking around.  On the hard wood floors.  Stalking and watching, my every move.  I would give them a treat, in hopes of them giving me some space.  They just kept trying to steal treats and cooked ground meat.

That’s Pepper, she’s watching my every move.   She couldn’t get enough of these crunchy beef sticks!  I’m sure your dog will love them too! 

 Our son, Landon, always wants to eat the dog treats.  You could eat them.  They’re made with normal human- grade ingredients.  No artificial stuff or hard to pronounce ingredients.  They do smell good when being baked in the oven.  So, I don’t blame him.  

When he was a baby, he would crawl over to the dog bowls and sneak some dog food.  I would yell, “No!” and he would get scared.  I just didn’t want him eating the dog food.  He really enjoyed eating it, too.  He ate dog food like it was candy.   If you have kids, you know they tend to eat some weird things.  

Just remember to save some ground beef when your browning a large batch for your meals.  You only need one cup of cooked- unseasoned ground beef.  Your dog would love to have one..two or three crunchy beef sticks!  You can feel good about giving them a homemade treat, straight from your own kitchen!  Don’t forget to share the treats with some other doggies in your area.

    Can I use wheat flour

    1. Vanessa

      Hi Leandra! You can try to use wheat flour. The dough may be a little tough to work with, but they should come out fine. I have used white whole wheat flour, without any issues.
