You gotta love a beef stew that has everything that’s good for your dog built in. There’s meat for protein, vegetables for vitamins, and gravy for flavor. Our Bow Wow! Beef Dog Stew Recipe is ideal for dogs that love wet commercial dog foods, but pet parents who want to make their dogs something wholesome. Everybody wins – yay!

Bow Wow! Beef Dog Stew Recipe


1 pound beef stew meat

1 small sweet potato

1/2 cup carrots, diced

1 stock celery, diced

1/2 cup cauliflower, diced

1/2 cup green beans, diced

1/2 cup of flour

1/2 cup beef broth

1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Microwave sweet potato for 5 to 8 minutes and set aside.
  2. Cut stew pieces into bite-sized chunks.
  3. Cook the stew pieces in olive oil over medium heat for 10-15 minutes. Remove the beef chunks from the pan, reserving the drippings.
  4. Heat the drippings over medium-low heat. Slowly add flour and beef broth into the dripping while whisking to create a thick gravy.
  5. Remove the sweet potato from the skin. Use a fork – it’ll be mushy, but it should come out easily.
  6. Add the meat, sweet potato, carrots, celery, cauliflower and green beans into the gravy and stir to coat. Cook for about 10 minutes, until veggies are tender.
  7. Serve when cool. Refrigerate or freeze portions.
