"dirty rice" dog food

Stormy Stewart


This is a great meal for any pampered pooch. I have a friend who only serves homemade dog foods like this one.

The serving size would depend on the size of the dog. Keep any leftover in the fridge and warm before serving.

How to Make "dirty rice" dog food


  1. Boil the chicken livers in beef broth and butter, bacon drippings or olive oil for 10 minutes. Remove from broth and chop most of the meat, mashing a small portion. Return all meat to the broth. Add more broth to make it nice and moist. Stir well.

    To make it extra rich, you can a egg when cooking the livers.
