Ingredients

Cooked Prime Meat is a food item in ARK: Survival Evolved. It can be obtained by cooking Raw Prime Meat at a Campfire or Industrial Grill.

Usage[]

If eaten by a survivor, Cooked Prime Meat replenishes 25.0 health and 35.0 points of food over 6 seconds.

It can also be used for taming any Carnivore. Cooked Prime Meat replenishes the same 50 food as regular Raw Meat to a Dino being tamed, but it tames the Dino at 1.5 times the speed. However, it is not advised to use Cooked Prime Meat for taming, as Raw Prime Meat is even more effective at taming (3 times compared to Raw Meat) except in the case of the Thylacoleo which prefers cooked over raw meat.
