Tasty Tuesday: The Dehydrator Recipe Edition

Dog Bark

1 - 1¼ Pounds Lean Ground Beef

¾ Pound Sweet Potato (1 large)

¼ Pound Green Beans (1 handful)

Peel and cut sweet potato into chunks and begin boiling in two cups of water.

Trim green beans and cut into smaller pieces. Add to pot with sweet potato when potato chunks are half way to soft.

Continue cooking until sweet potato chunks are soft enough to mash.

Pour off, but retain, the cooking water.

Cook ground beef in a fry pan over medium heat until brown.

When the meat is browned and cooked through, drain off liquid and pat meat dry with paper towels.

Add cooked ground beef to pot with sweet potato and green beans.

Add 1½ cups of the retained cooking water and mash with a potato masher.

Divide mush into two or three parts and run through a blender until smooth.

Spread thinly on dehydrator trays covered with non-stick sheets and dry at 145° F for approximately six 

hours. After four or five hours, flip bark over and dry without the non-stick sheets.

Bark is not brittle when dry, so it does not present a choking hazard.

It should feel completely dry and will break into pieces easily.

Another good recipe for the dehydrator! Interesting idea to make a bark, looks similar to making fruit leathers.
