How to Make Delicious Pork and Apple Stew for Your Pup

Are you looking for a super easy and healthy stew recipe that your furry friend will love? Look no further! At Hook’d Up Bar and Grill, we have a special recipe for Instant Pot Pork and Apple Stew for Dogs that is sure to make your pup’s tail wag with delight.

A Favorite Among Dogs

Our Instant Pot Pork and Apple Stew is a hit with our four-legged customers. Made with mouthwatering pork, sweet potato, green beans, peas, apples, rice, and oats, this stew is packed with wholesome ingredients that will leave your dog begging for more. We believe that the key to a happy and healthy pup is a balanced diet, and this stew fits the bill perfectly.

The Perfect Combination

We discovered that pork and apples make a winning combination when it comes to flavor. Just like when we humans enjoy pork with apples, our furry friends also seem to adore this combination. The natural sweetness of the apples adds a delightful touch to the stew. You can use any type of apple you have on hand, whether it’s a fuji, gala, honey crisp, or granny smith.

A Recipe for a Healthy Dog

While we primarily focus on serving delicious food to our human customers at Hook’d Up Bar and Grill, we also understand the importance of providing nutritious options for our four-legged friends. Before developing this recipe, we did thorough research to ensure that we were offering a healthy meal for dogs. Dogs are omnivores and can enjoy a variety of foods, so we carefully selected ingredients that provide essential nutrients and dietary fiber.

The Benefits of Homemade Dog Food

One of the reasons we prepare our own dog food is because it can be much cheaper than commercially prepared options. Canned and refrigerated dog food can sometimes come with a hefty price tag, especially if you have multiple dogs to feed. By making your own dog food, you have control over the quality of ingredients and can avoid unnecessary fillers or byproducts.

Convenient and Versatile

Our Instant Pot Pork and Apple Stew is not only delicious and nutritious but also incredibly convenient. After cooking and cooling the stew, you can portion it into plastic containers or sealable plastic freezer bags. It stores well in the refrigerator for up to five days or in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator when you’re ready to serve.

How to Make Instant Pot Pork and Apple Stew (for Dogs)

Now that you’re eager to try this recipe for your pup, here’s how you can make it:


  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 cup light brown or white rice
  • ¼ cup rolled oats
  • 2-2½ pounds boneless pork
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups green beans
  • 1 cup green peas
  • 1 large apple, peeled and cored
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed (optional)


  1. Pour the water into the insert of your Instant Pot, followed by all the remaining ingredients in order. This ensures that the rice and oats cook properly and prevents a “burn” error.
  2. Lock the lid in place and ensure the sealing knob is turned to sealing.
  3. Cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes and allow the pressure to release naturally.
  4. Remove the lid and stir all the ingredients until well combined.
  5. Store the stew in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  6. To serve, mix 50% kibble with 50% stew. For example, if your pup eats 1 cup of food, combine ½ cup kibble with ½ cup stew. Adding 1-2 tablespoons of hot water can help warm it up and combine the ingredients.
  7. For longer-term storage, transfer the stew to freezer-safe containers and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight.
