Ground Beef Cat Food

Note: Misty doesn’t really like this. Might need to try making it with less fat and no cornstarch.

1 pound ground beef (80% lean)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon water (divided)
1 tablespoon fat (exactly)

Fry ground beef until medium well.
Remove the ground beef, preserving 1 tablespoon of the fat. Discard rest of fat. Cool cooked beef in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Whisk the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water.
Add to the tablespoon of fat and blend well.
Pour into skillet.
Gradually stir in the 1 cup of water and bring just to a boil.
Remove from heat and cool in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

When beef and broth are cool, put them in a blender and pulse on high for 15 seconds twice, resting at least 15 seconds between the two. Add more water if needed to reach the desired consistency (like baby food).

Spoon into baby food jars, only to 1/2 full, as it is high in fat. Makes about 10. Freeze what will not be eaten within a couple of days.
