Sugar Maple Inn Rodeo Roundup

For dogs.

Makes 2 to 3 Gingersnap-sized portions or 5 to 6 Trixie-sized portions.

1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound very lean ground beef

½ 8-ounce package frozen corn

3 cups cooked brown rice

½ 15-ounce can kidney beans

Heat the olive oil and cook the ground beef as you would hamburgers. Meanwhile, cook the corn according to the package.

When slightly pink inside, remove the ground beef from the pan and set aside. Add a splash of water to the pan and deglaze, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom.

Add the rice to the pan and stir to coat with the flavor of the beef. Add the beans and corn, and crumble the beef into the pan. (If your dog likes to pick out the meat, crumble very fine.) Mix and serve mildly warm but not hot.
