Here's One from my Family cook book

Elephant Stew
1 med size Elephant
salt and pepper to taste
Potatoes and vegetables as desire by the bushels
Brown gravy, Lots
2 rabbits optional

Cut elephant into bite size pieces, this may take up to two weeks. Place in a very large pot or you can use clean 50 gallon drums. Add brown gravy to cover. cook over kerosene fire until tender, about 4 weeks, may take longer if a old bull elephant is used. Add water as needed. Add the potatoes and vegetables the morning before serving.
This will serve about 3800 people.
Note:If more people are expected, the two rabbits maybe added, but do this only if absolutely necessary as most people do not like to find hare in their stew.
This is great. I think I'll try this one after I make the Squash Apple Soup.

Freshly harvested pain in the neck cockerel. Properly rested for 3-4 days.

Simmer on back of wood stove all day and debone stock. Add celery, onion and carrots and any other extras you feel like. Season accordingly. I prefer using chicken bouillon instead of salt.

Now for proper dumplings.
1 egg
1 cup of flour
Pinch salt
Enough water to make stiff dough.

Roll it out on counter about 1/4” thick. Cut into strips with pizza cutter. Add to boiling stock. Once they float, boil additional five minutes and stir in corn starch mixed with water until stock is thickened to your liking.

Serve with hot sourdough fresh baked.

So, is this recipe called "Pain in the Neck Cockerel & Dumplings"? :D
