Dogs can absolutely eat cooked steak but there are certain things to be careful about if you don’t want your dog to end up with an upset stomach. First, we would avoid letting your dog have a piece of steak that has been heavily cooked in butter or oil. The high fat content might make your dog’s stomach uneasy, especially if they were to eat a decent amount of the cooked steak.

Second, watch out for any additional ingredients that may have been used to cook the steak. For example, some steak recipes may use ingredients like garlic and onions, both of which are toxic to pets. Rather than letting your dog eat some of the steak leftovers, we believe it’s best to prepare and cook the steak separately if it’s intended for your dog.

Last but not least, take out as much of the fat trimming as you can from the steak bone. Too much fat isn’t good for a dog.

A safer steak-cooking method for dogs might be to boil or to cook the steak in the oven. Keep it plain. There’s no need to add any extra seasonings. Chop the cooked steak into smaller pieces and make sure it has fully cooled down before you let your dog eat it.
