Preserved meat is a consumable item in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Old World Blues.


A piece of dried, shriveled up cow meat, from the extinct ancestor of the brahmin. It is identical in appearance to brahmin steak. The preserved meat is affected by the Survival skill, and thus will have its effects tripled with a skill of 100, giving it a healing amount of 3 hit points per second for 15 seconds while reducing Starvation by 150.
