Beef Stew is a food item found in Skyrim.



Beef stew is relatively easy to make and provides a small Stamina boost and a fast Stamina regeneration rate. Furthermore, it's duration surpasses any potion with similar effects by minutes. It can help the Dragonborn recover lost Stamina faster than both Venison Stew and Vegetable Soup, which only restore 1 point of Stamina per second instead of the 2 points per second that Beef Stew offers. Combat-based players can heavily benefit from Beef Stew, as they will be able to execute more power attacks and sprint for longer distances without needing to worry about Stamina. Archery-based players can benefit from Beef Stew as well, as they will be able to zoom in and slow down time more frequently, and will have more time to aim their shots more precisely.
