  • 1 large buffalo
  • beef gravy (lots)


  1. Cut 1 large buffalo into small bite-size pieces. This should take about 2 weeks. Add enough brown gravy to cover in a very large pan.
  2. Cook over kerosene fire for about 4 weeks at 450°F
  3. This will serve 3800 people. If more are expected, two rabbits may be added, but do this only if need be, as some people do not like to find hare in their stew.
