This item must be crafted by the Courier. It is not sold by merchants or found elsewhere in the wasteland. The recipe for the stew can be found outside the west entrance to the South Vegas ruins, in a Fiend encampment defended by Cook-Cook and his gang. It will be sitting on a shelf along with all the required ingredients for the dish, with the exception of the two beers.

  • Although it is a stew, its world model actually looks like mole rat meat. The Pip-Boy image is also a piece of meat.
  • If the recipe is not seen on the shelf, it may have fallen off along with some of the ingredients on the ground.
