1/2 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/4 cup finely chopped carrots
1/4 cup rolled oats
one large egg, beaten
two tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional for added flavor) one tablespoon of olive oil
1/4 cup water
In a large mixing bowl, combine the lean ground beef, cooked sweet potatoes, chopped carrots, rolled oats, beaten egg, and chopped parsley (if using). Mix the ingredients thoroughly until well combined. The sweet potatoes add a natural sweetness and extra nutrients to this tasty treat, while the carrots provide essential vitamins for your pup’s health.
Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the ground beef mixture to the pan. Use a spatula to break the mixture into small, bite-sized pieces. Cook the beef until it is fully browned and cooked through. The aroma of the cooking beef is sure to get your dog excited for their special “Tuesday Treat.”
Once the ground beef is cooked, add 1/4 cup of water to the pan, stirring gently to combine. The water will create a rich and savory sauce, enhancing the flavor of the treat and making it extra juicy and irresistible for your pup.
Allow the mixture to simmer for 2-3 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly. The oats absorb some liquid, creating a soft and chewy texture that your furry friend will love.
Remove the pan from heat and let the mixture cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, transfer the delicious ground beef delight into your dog’s bowl and watch them eagerly enjoy their “Tuesday Treat” from Hot Dog on a Leash.
