Best Dog Food Recipe

My dad is the best cook. He cooks dog food for us that is so good, he should be on that Iron Chef TV show. When he cooks dinner for us the aroma fills the whole house. Wherever I am I can smell it. I come running over to watch as he carefully chops, sautés and mixes. He has the best dog food recipe. It takes about an hour, but its sooooo worth the wait. Nalla and I just keep running around his feet while he’s cooking, hoping he’ll trip and drop something. Sometimes he does. Here’s a picture of the dinner he made tonight.

Dad's Dog Food Recipe

I sometimes feel bad eating such good food while my neighbors are eating Purina, Iams or (ugh!) Ol’ Roy. That stuff isn’t even fit for a cat. But I get over the guilt when I taste his decadently delectable canine cuisine. Mmmmm. Tonight’s entrée: Beef with Rice and Carrots. He likes to serve it with a side of Holistic Select kibble. That’s what we eat when he doesn’t feel like cooking. It’s supposed to be very healthy. The kibble adds a crunchy component that complements the tender beef and delicate rice blend.

Nalla and I go crazy for carrots. Those are our favorite treats. You can keep your Milk Bones and Beggin Strips; I’ll take a cool, crisp carrot any day. That’s the secret ingredient in this dog food recipe that really makes it kick.

This is the best dog food recipe I’ve ever encountered in all my years. Everyone should be as lucky as me. So I’ll share it with you here. I hope you enjoy it. 

As you humans say, bon appétit. Or as we canines say, don’t let the jackals steal your carcass.

Dad’s Best Dog Food Recipe

Beef with Rice and Carrots

1 lb lean ground beef 1 cup brown rice
1/2 cup chopped carrots 2-1/2 cups water
1 cup Holistic Select dry dog food  


In a medium saucepan, add brown rice and carrots to boiling water. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45-50 minutes until rice is soft and all water is absorbed. While rice and carrots are cooking, brown beef in a large skillet. Make sure it is broken into small pieces and thoroughly cooked (no pink). Drain excess fat and water from pan. When rice is ready, fold in the beef and half of the kibble. Let it sit about 15 minutes to cool and to allow the beef flavors to soak into the kibble and rice. Serve in a bowl, surrounded by remaining kibble. Garnish with carrot strips.

Serves 8 Pomeranians

    Well, if you’re not going to eat your Beggin’ Strips, I’ll gladly take them.

    My Mom is an asipiring Pastry Chef so I get alot of sweets! I’ll tell her to make this for me right away though. Sounds super good. And the serving size better be good because I can eat like eight Pomeranians!
