Skyrim Horker Stew Recipe
For anyone who’s cooked up food while playing the game, Skyrim, you’ve probably whipped up a batch or 2 of horker stew, since it’s a recipe that’s actually worthwhile to make given its effects. This in game recipe requires 4 ingredients; lavender, tomato, garlic, and horker meat. Upon consumption, horker stew restores 15 health and 15 stamina, and restores 1 health per second for 720 seconds. I’ll be honest, I don’t eat a lot of stew. With its tomatoes and lavender though, this recipe had me intrigued and I wanted to replicate it in real life. Keep reading to see what I came up with!

*Horkers are sea animals that reside in colder environments. Their diets consist of sea creatures, such as clams. I would consider their closest ‘real-life counterpart’ to be the walrus. Walrus is not easily acquirable where I live, so I substituted beef stew meat for my horker/walrus.
**I used russet potatoes. If you like sweet potatoes, or are feeling adventurous, try them instead. They make a fun combination with the chosen spices, but they do soften quicker.
1. Chop and dice your ingredients, including meat, carrots, potatoes, garlic, and onion. Add to crock pot.
2. Add your tomatoes and beef broth.
3. Stir in the remaining spice ingredients.
4. Set your crockpot to low for 6 hours. Stir every few hours if home. If the stew isn’t thickening to your level of preference after 4 hours, add in some cornstarch.
