Fresh meat combined with high-protein grains, legumes or dairy products is the nutritious backbone of the home-prepared canine diet. Beef, either ground or in chunks, raw or cooked is a doggy favorite. If you choose to cook your best friend's beef, it's easy to sauté lean ground beef to perfection.
Add the oil to the cold frying pan. Place on a stove burner set to low heat. Heat oil for about 30 seconds, then add the ground beef. Break up the meat with the spatula, moving it around until the bottom of the pan is evenly coated and no large chunks remain.
Stir the meat often as it cooks to avoid burning. Cook until the meat is evenly browned, with no pink remaining.
Cover the frying pan and let it sit for a few minutes. Pour off the fat through a strainer. Cool the ground beef completely before feeding or adding to a recipe.
