Squirrel stew is a food item found in Fallout: New Vegas.


When consumed, it restores 1 Hit Point per second and lasts for 5 seconds, but also gives one a small amount of radiation. It can also reduce Starvation by a fair amount in Hardcore mode. Soldiers at Camp Forlorn Hope primarily subsist on squirrel.[1]
