The true fruit öf the earth!

Wigfrid

This page is about different kinds of Meats. For the item itself, see Meat.

There are 13 basic Meat food items in-game. There is one additional Meat in the Reign of Giants DLC, 11 additional Meats in the Shipwrecked DLC, two additional Meats in the Hamlet DLC, and eight additional Meats in Don't Starve Together. Most meats are dropped by Mobs as loot, and fish can also be obtained from Ponds with a Fishing Rod. If a mob died from burning, the cooked variant of meat will be dropped instead (if available). Many of the meats can be dried on a Drying Rack, resulting in Jerky, a much longer-lasting food item with different Hunger, Sanity, and Health bonuses.

Mobs such as Pigs, Spiders or Hounds will eat any form of dropped meat on the ground, including Pig Skins. Additionally, Bunnymen will be aggressive towards a player if they have any item on this list.

There are 10 Crock Pot recipes that require Meat. There are two additional recipes in the Reign of Giants DLC, four additional recipes in the Shipwrecked DLC, three additional recipes in the Hamlet DLC, and one additional recipe in Don't Starve Together. Warly's Portable Crock Pot also has one recipe that requires meat in Don't Starve Together. An Egg is counted as an egg in a Crock Pot, and as meat elsewhere. Fishes are counted as both fish and meat in a Crock Pot, and as meat elsewhere.

Icon Tools.png Usage[edit | edit source]

  • Meats in any state of spoilage can be given to the bird in a Birdcage to produce a fresh Egg.
  • Meats can be given to Pigs to befriend them. If the Pig eats four of any of the health damaging Monster Foods, it will turn into a Werepig.
  • Meats, except for raw and cooked Monster Meat and raw and Cooked Frog Legs, can be given to the Pig King in exchange for Gold Nuggets.
  • In the Reign of Giants DLC, Moleworms can be used in the Crock Pot but do not count as Meat in any other action.
