Last month, we went to Lawry’s to celebrate Ryan’s birthday and brought home 2 big prime rib bones for the doggies since they couldn’t come with us… The first time Sriracha had a prime rib bone, he almost tipped over while carrying the thing to his crate because it was bigger than him. The second time, he started chewing at it while I was holding it out to him. He didn’t plan to take it away and figured it was better to have me carry it for him!
I always strip most of the leftover meat off the bones before giving them to my dogs since too much meat will upset their stomach. But it’s a shame to waste perfectly good prime rib meat, so I ended up making little prime rib bits dog treats for my little friends.
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 cup beef or chicken stock
- 1 cup chopped up cooked meat (lean beef or chicken breast)
- 2 cup all-purpose flour + extra flour as needed & for dusting
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- Whisk the egg and stock together in a medium mixing bowl.
- Add 1 cup of flour and whisk to combine.
- Add the chopped up meat in the flour mixture and mix together.
- Add the remaining 1 cup of flour and mix with the wooden spoon until all the flour is incorporated into a ball of dough. If the mixture is still wet, add a little more flour.
- On well-floured board, roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thick. Use flour liberally while rolling so the dough doesn’t stick.
- Cut dough with a 2 inch dog bone cookie cutter and place on the baking sheet about 1/2 inch apart. Gather the remaining bits of dough, shape into a ball, roll out again, and continue to cut. Repeat until all the dough is gone.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Flip the treats, and bake for another 20 minutes until both sides are golden brown. Let cool completely on the counter before serving to your pups.
- You can use any shape cookie cutter you have, or simply use a knife and slice the dough into squares or rectangles. Also, you can make the treats larger for bigger pups.
- Substitute other type of flour as needed if you feed your pups a grain free diet.
