    I just trimmed some steak & have a pile of fat & gristle-y parts. Can I cook it up & give it to my girls??? will they eat it or run in terror??

    I wouldn't even bother cooking it but some people have issues with raw meat. They won't really care one way or another. If they haven't had many treats they might take awhile to try it. If they are are used to treats they will probably go nuts over it.

    We grind deer with alot of fat on it for the girls and they love it. It's raw and all we have to do is shake the bag and they come running. A nice little fatty treat to help keep them warm.
