Elephant Stew

Rate: 4 Flag

I came across this recipe while I was going through one my local charity published cook books.  It made me smile, so I thought I would pass it on....




1 elephant

112 gallons of water

12 c pepper

12 c salt


Cut the elephant in 1 inch cubes, adding pinches of salt and pepper frequently. Should take approximately 72 days.  Add water to cover and simmer over stove for about 4 weeks at 465 degrees.  If more than 3,800 guests are expected, 42 rabbits can be added. (do so only if necessary), as most people do not like to find hare in their stew.


 ps. Pardon my lack of PC.

Good one

Thanks PBSM... I thought it was funny too. :))

No wait....:D
Cute! My dad always told me you can only eat an elephant one bite at a time. I had no idea they took so long to cook!
Thanks for commenting friends. Lunchlady I deleted your comment by mistake. Sorry. I too like Silly. :))
I figured it would take awhile to cook for 3,800 people, but damn!
Sorry, but twelve gallons of water will nowhere near cover them, it would even color me and I'd some BunnyRabbits in my stew. Four weeks is good ... and funny. Would you mind not expecting me for this one, I have previous dinner invitation, they are having Anteater and possum, unskinned, over toast.
Owl @ Professor, Thanks for commenting. I also thought 12 gallons was a little off.... :))
this is a good remidy for the elephant in the room problem that often pops up.
Shelly, Perfect... That is so funny. There ALWAYS is an elephant in the room during the holiday's especially. :)
