Don’t worry friends these aren’t the cooked steak bone variety. This is a fun little treat mum has made me with some of the leftovers from the BBQs over the Christmas period and the cool little bone cookie cutters mum bought us for Christmas.
For anyone who doesn’t know…. as much as I love my food and may look like I want it… Cooked bones are not good for me. Cooked bones can splinter as we chew them and cause internal damage.
So back to my special Steak Bones.
What you need to get out of the cupboard and fridge:
- About 2 cups of left over cooked steak (just adjust the rest of the ingredients to the amount of steak you have).
- A cup of rice flour.
- About 1/4 cup of water.
- 1 egg.
- Pre-heat the oven to 180 Celsius.
- Cut the steak off any bones (remember cooked bones are bad) into chunks. Just reasonable sizes that a food processor can handle.
- Put the steak chunks and about half the water into a food processor and turn it on so that the steak mushes up. Add more water as needed so that the steak mushes but not too mushy.
- Add the flour the rice flour and buzz it around in the food processor again. This is where you can play with the amount of rice flour to get the texture right. Mushy enough to that it can be spooned out of the bowl and into a tray.
- Last ingredient to add is the egg. Mum adds the egg and just stirs that through with a spoon.
- Once the egg is mixed through then spoon the mixture into your bone shaped cutter. Fill the cutter and then carefully remove the cutter and do the same thing again until you have used up all the mixture. If you don’t have any bone shaped cutter than you can use other shapes (mum has used star shapes in the past) or simply flatten into tray and cut into pieces once cooked (what mum does with most of my training treats).
- Place in the pre-heated oven for 10-15 mins (keep an eye on them) and then wait patiently for them to cool.
