The pre-War steak is a consumable item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money.


A cut of meat prepared before, and preserved since, the Great War. Its appearance is identical to brahmin meat but it provides less benefits when eaten, in addition to a -1 penalty to Endurance. Unlike brahmin meat, it does not impart radiation to the consumer.
