Makes 2 large spice containers full
Saucy Dog is a registered trademark of mine, but I am giving you the original recipe here. You can turn Saucy Dog into a gravy or paint it on old toys to give them new life. You can also sprinkle it on your dog's food to add flavor. The great thing about Saucy Dog is that you can store it in a spice jar just like you do your spices.
This recipe makes 2 large spice containers full and will keep for 1 month in the fridge or 6 months in the freezer. Finding the dried ingredients used to be difficult, but today they are more readily available at all-natural markets, at outdoor camping supply stores, and on the Internet. I usually buy 1 pound of each ingredient at a time and store it in the freezer.

powder and the bouillon powder to the beef or chicken pieces in the blender or
processor. Add the remaining ingredients and blend until you're happy with the consistency. I like to keep some
