Easy Homemade Dog Food

To make prepping this homemade dog food a cinch and to save LOTS of time and dishes in the process I like to cook the hard boiled eggs and the rice in my Instant Pot!

I start with  cooking the eggs first, then while the rice is cooking the Instant Pot I brown the sirloin and get all of the fresh ingredients together. It really does help make the process of meal prepping homemade dog food so much easier!

See recipe notes for Instant Pot cooking tips and times!



6 cups cooked organic brown rice (3 cups uncooked rice)

2 pounds ground lean beef, cooked through, fat drained

4 hard boiled eggs, peeled and diced small

3 medium sized carrots, shredded or thinly sliced

1/4 cup minced curly parsley

3 tablespoons of olive or safflower oil


Combine all of the ingredients together in a large container and stir to combine completely.

Store tightly sealed in the refrigerator in-between feedings.


The amount of food you feed your dog each day varies by weight. Our 80+ pound senior dog Hooch eats 4 cups of this food twice per day and our 40 pound Rebel eats 2 cups of food twice per day.

This food can be individually portioned out for smaller dogs and frozen to store for longer periods of time than a week. Just thaw the amount you need when you need it.

Metric measurements:

790 grams cooked organic brown rice

700 grams ground lean beef, cooked through, fat drained

4 (200 grams) hard boiled eggs, peeled and diced small

207 grams carrots, shredded or thinly sliced

14 grams minced curly parsley

22 grams of olive or safflower oil

Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs: Place the metal trivet into the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. Add uncooked eggs on top of the trivet. Place the lid on top, lock to sealing, and cook high pressure for 5 minutes. Release pressure valve manually at the end of the cooking time and carefully remove the hard boiled eggs to a water bath to cool.

Instant Pot Rice: Combine the desired amount of rice and water in an Instant Pot. Place the lid on and set the pressure to sealing. Select the rice function, allow the pressure to release naturally when the cook time is complete.

No fresh parsley? You can substitute it in this recipe with 1/4 cup of our Homemade Dog Food Seasoning Blend.
