Meaty Stew is a Crock Pot food item cooked by adding 3.0 units of Meats. It takes 15 seconds to cook. It is one of the most filling food items in the game, restoring an astounding 150 Hunger Meter.png.

Adding TwigsMandrakes, Tallbird Eggs, any sweeteners, or more than one Monster Meat will result in Kabobs, Mandrake Soup, Bacon and Eggs, Honey Ham, or Monster Lasagna respectively. Because of the high Meats value requirement and prohibition of multiple Monster Meat, at least 1 piece of normal Meat is required to cook Meaty Stew. 

Meaty Stew fills a stomach significantly more than its components alone. It completely fills the bellies of any characters other than Wolfgang, Webber, Warly, Wortox, or upgraded WX-78, so it's best to save eating this until nearly starving (for instance, after sleeping).

Meaty Stew ties with Cooked Mandrake and Fresh Fruit Crepes as the most belly-filling food in the game. Cooked Mandrakes are better in terms of health restoration and spoilage time, while the Fresh Fruit Crepes outclass them both for the sanity boost, minus the lower health restoration than the latter. Conversely to Cooked Mandrakes, the Meaty Stew lacks the sleep-inducing effect; additionally, it can be eaten by Wigfrid whereas the Cooked Mandrake and the Fresh Fruit Crepes cannot.

In the Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked DLCs, Meaty Stew raises the player's perceived temperature by 1 degree per second for 15 seconds when consumed. However, this bonus effect does not apply in Don't Starve Together.

In Don't Starve Together, large Fishes and Leafy Meat count as 1.0 unit of Meat, therefore Meat is no longer a strict requirement for the recipe.
