Elephant Stew

Norma DeRemer


This is so funny that I had to share it. Just for fun!

A resident at the Nursing Home I worked at gave me this recipe. She was a missionary for many years and a sweet lady with a good sense of humor.

How to Make Elephant Stew


  1. Cut elephant meat into bite-sized pieces (this will take about two months).
  2. Cut vegetables into cubes (another two months).
  3. Plave meat in a pan and cover with 1,000 gallons of brown gravy. Simmer for four weeks.
  4. Shovel in salt and pepper to taste
  5. When meat is tender, add vegetables ( a steam shovel is useful for this ).
  6. Simmer slowly for four more weeks.
  7. Garnish with parsley
  8. Serves 3,800
  9. If more is expected, add two rabbits.
  10. This is not recommended, however, as very few people like hare in their stew.
