  • 1 pound ground beef sirloin lean
  • 3 sweet potatoes diced
  • 1 teaspoon corn oil


  • Clean the sweet potatoes with water and soap, remove any debris and then peel. Dice and set aside.  
  • In a pot add water and cook the sweet potatoes for 10 minutes.  
  • In a skillet add the corn oil and let it warm, then add the ground beef sirloin and cook for few minutes until meat is thoroughly cooked but still juicy.  
  • Add the cooked sweet potatoes to the cooked ground meat and combine.  
  • Store the beef picadillo in plastic containers and freeze. Just keep one container in the fridge for the weekly feeding.  



  • Do not add salt or any condiments.
  • Do not add more than one teaspoon of cooking oil (could be olive oil, corn oil or coconut oil).
  • The serving suggestion depends on the weight and size of your dog.
  • For example, serve one tablespoon combined with the dried dog food for a dog that is 18-20 pounds. 
  • Since this picadillo is freezer friendly, you can make in advance and keep a few containers adequately dated. 
  • Then defrost when needed. No need to warm. 
  • Can combine with the dried dog food or serve on its own.
