Homemade Beef Jerky for Dogs

Prep Time5 mins
Cook Time12 hrs
Total Time12 hrs 5 mins


  • 1 lb mixture of ground beef, organ meats, and bones (you can use just ground beef as well)


  • Preheat oven 130 degrees F or to its lowest setting.
  • Place the meat mixture on a parchment paper and use your hands or a greased rolling pin to flatten out the meat to about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Use a blunt knife to score the meat into a checkerboard pattern so you can later break them into bite sized pieces.
  • Place the entire thing on a baking sheet, and dehydrate in the oven for 8 hours.
  • Take out of the oven and tilt the baking sheet carefully over the sink to drain out any grease that seeped out.
  • Break the beef into pieces along the previously scored lines, then place them in a single layer on a cooling rack on top of a fresh baking sheet.
  • Place back in the oven for 4-5 more hours. There may be more drippings that fall into the baking sheet.
  • Store at room temperature for 3 weeks, or keep in the fridge if planning to keep longer than that.
