Meaty Stew is one of the most nourishing dishes in Don’t Starve Together, restoring a whopping 150 hunger points. This makes it particularly valuable during long winters or extended explorations with sparse food sources. Its high satiation level means you can go longer between meals, allowing more time for other survival activities like gathering resources or crafting.

Before diving into the specifics of Meaty Stew, it’s essential to understand the central role of the Crock Pot. This indispensable kitchen equipment allows you to combine food items into new, more nutritious dishes. To craft a Crock Pot, you’ll need the following: 

  • Three Cut Stones 
  • Six Charcoal 
  • Six Twigs

Once built, the Crock Pot opens up many culinary possibilities, Meaty Stew being one of the most fulfilling.

Ingredients for Meaty Stew

To make Meaty Stew, you need a total of three meat value in your Crock Pot. You can achieve this through various combinations of meat items. Here are some common examples:

  • Monster Meat: One meat value 
  • Morsel (from rabbits, birds, etc.): Half meat value 
  • Meat (from larger animals like beefalo): One meat value 
  • Drumstick (from turkeys): Half meat value 
  • Fish: Half meat value

Popular Combinations

Some combinations efficiently achieve the required three meat value. One balanced combination uses two units of Meat, one Monster Meat, and one Morsel. This mix effectively leverages high and low-value meat items, making it ideal when you have access to various meat sources.

Another helpful strategy when Monster Meat is in surplus involves using one Meat, two Monster Meats, and one Morsel. This approach helps utilize Monster Meat, which carries health penalties if consumed directly. Cooking it within the stew neutralizes these negative effects, making it practical to use this resource without the associated risks.

For those times when larger game is scarce and you’re primarily catching smaller creatures, a combination of four Morsels can also achieve the required meat value.

To make Meaty Stew, hunt and collect the necessary meat types per your chosen combination. Place your meats into the Crock Pot. The order doesn’t affect the outcome, so feel free to add them as you gather. Start the cooking process, which takes about 15 seconds of game time. During this period, it’s worth staying nearby and preparing for any potential threat because the scent may attract predators. Once the stew is ready, it appears above the Crock Pot. Click to collect and store or eat it as needed. Since Meaty Stew has a high spoilage rate, it’s best cooked and consumed strategically. Avoid preparing too much if you won’t consume it in time.

So, there you have it! Enjoy your hearty meal in the wilderness of Don’t Starve Together!
