About this Recipe

With Autumn around the corner, it’s most likley, you’ll be getting the slow cooker out. This easy Beef Stew for dogs recipe delivers soft tender beef, plenty of veg and furthermore, some great benefits in Ginger and Turmeric

The benefits of Ginger are, in the main, around digestion. A Ginger biscuit can really help if your dog suffers with travel sickness. Other than that, Beef and Ginger are a great flavour combo. So above all, this Beef stew for dogs is also really tasty. Dogs can’t have salt or anything spicy hence ingredients such as Ginger, Turmeric and Herbs therefore take centre stage in many of our recipes

I knew I was on to a winner with this for the reason that Willow refused to leave the kitchen, insisting on keeping watch over the slow cooking process. If you don’t have a slow cooker, or likewise, maybe prefer to cook on the hob, follow up to step 3,  throw all the ingredients into a pan and cook as low as possible from there. Likewise, If you are looking to invest in a slow cooker, I’d highly recommend a Crock Pot one. I’ve had mine for about 10 years.


I bought Stewing Beef from the local Butchers. It’s cheap and furthermore, works great slow cooked. If you aren’t sure, just tell your Butcher you want to slow cook. Mine thinks I’m slightly crazy when I say I’m doing a Beef stew for my dog. Alternatively, you can certainly find “Stewing” Beef in the supermarket.
