Note: As with any dog food recipe, it is essential that it is complete and balanced.

The blend is compounded from 100% human-grade nutraceuticals regulated by the FDA. As such, it is vital that you follow this recipe exactly as it is written.

Preparation Instructions

1. Wash all vegetables thoroughly.

4. Be sure to use edible potatoes, without any signs of aging or shades of green. 

5. Make sure that all apples are cored and all seeds are removed. Apple cores/seeds can be toxic to dogs.

Instant Pot Cooking Instructions

1. Add beef, beef liver, and carrots to the Instant Pot. Use the “Sautee” setting at 5 minutes with the lid removed, to begin browning the protein and stirring to break up larger chunks of meat. After 5 minutes, turn off Instant Pot. 

2. Add russet potatoes, sweet potatoes, green beans, green peas, and apples along with ½ cup of water. To avoid a “Burn Error,” be sure to mix well and scrape the bottom of the pot after adding water. 

3. Set Instant Pot to “Pressure Cook” setting for 10 minutes. 

4. After the 10-minute timer goes off, release pressure and check to see if ingredients are thoroughly cooked (soft to the touch). 

5. After it has completely cooled to the touch, place the food in a large mixing bowl and slowly sprinkle in the Beef & Russet Potato DIY Nutrient Blend along with the oils required in the recipe. Mix these in thoroughly. 

6. Portion into individual serving sizes and store in the refrigerator or freezer. This recipe will remain fresh in your refrigerator for 3-5 days and up to one year in the freezer.
