Steak and Cheese Kong

Steiner has separation anxiety.  It used to be really bad, but with a few tricks and treats, it has become a little less of an issue.  If your dog hates going into a crate, this will make it a little better. This is the one and only treat that will get Steiner to go into his crate, and not have an attitude about it. Trust me, I would love to let him roam the house and have his little freedom, but he is very untrustworthy! Here is what you need to make your friend smile!

Steak (Stir fry steak)
Cheese (mix of Monterey Jack and Colby/and or cheddar)
Frying pan
Cutting Board

First get your steak, and a cutting board.
 Cut your steak strips in half. Then, if possible, cut them in half again.
Cut little square pieces from your strips. This step is kind of a pain in the tushy. I give my husband full credit for his patience with this task.
 Put all of your little pieces in the pan. You don't need to add any cooking spray. It will be oily and greasy on it's own.
 Cook until all of your pieces are cooked all the way through, no pink!
 Put all of your pieces in the strainer, and really mix it around.
 I take an extra step here. I take 2 paper towels, and place them in the pan. I let it soak up all of the extra grease that's on them, that the strainer didn't get out.
 Okay, so at this time, you can put them in a tupperware and store them for when you need them. If you're ready to use them, here is what we do. Take enough steak to fill up about 3/4 of the kong. Sprinkle the meat and a little cheese on a plate. Put it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.
 Make sure the meat isn't hot, because it will stay hot in the kong. It should be a nice room temp. Next, take all of your fixings and shove them in your kong.
 Last step, give to your pup, let him eat it up, yum!
