If you enjoy cooking homemade dog food or want to treat your dog to a special dinner, beef stew is an affordable and delicious choice. With succulent chunks of beef added to a healthy stew, your dog will be happy and satisfied! This recipe can also be modified to suit your available ingredients and dog's tastes.

Making a Chunky Beef Stew for Your Dog

Step 1

Brown the beef chunks on all sides in a large nonstick pot on medium heat.

Step 2

Sprinkle the beef chunks with the flour and stir until flour absorbs rendered fat from meat.

Step 3

Pour beef stock slowly over meat. Add rice, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.

Step 4

Add remaining vegetables to stew. Stir and simmer, covered, for one hour or until meat is tender and liquid is thickened to the desired consistency.

Step 5

Serve stew warm, not hot. Refrigerate leftovers and reheat gently before serving.


  • Always consult a list of safe "human" foods for dogs before altering your stew recipe.


  • Feel free to substitute other meats, grains and vegetables to your stew, as long as they are considered safe for dogs.

  • Possible substitutions include barley for the rice, green beans for the carrots or corn for the peas.

  • Consult a feeding guide to determine serving sizes based on your dog's breed, weight and age.
