A Favorite Pow Wow Recipe From 20 Years (or more?) Ago
                   Use one elephant medium size, 2 rabbits
                   (optional), salt and pepper. Cut the elephant into
                   bite size pieces and freeze. (You freeze the
                   pieces cut in order to preserve them until the
                   entire task gets done.) This will take about 2
                   months so plan ahead. Thaw and brown; add
                   enough brown gravy stock to cover meat. Cook
                   uncovered at 465 degrees for about 4 weeks,
                   adding more liquid if necessary. This recipe serves 38,000 people. If
more are expected, add the two rabbits, but only if necessary because more people
don't like to find a hare in their stew.
