How to Make a Beef Jerky Bouquet for Your Valentine

When you think of Valentine's Day, it's almost inevitable that flowers and chocolates come to mind, however, we've taken gifting to a whole new level with a DIY beef jerky bouquet. Who knew beef jerky flowers could taste so good?

DIY Beef Jerky Bouquet

Crafted from our massive slabs of beef jerky and made from 100% beef, this meat bouquet is the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Not only is it delicious and made with quality ingredients, but it's unique and extremely thoughtful. I mean rose petals made out of dried beef? It doesn't get any more creative than that.

Below is an easy step-by-step tutorial (with pictures) of how to craft the perfect beef jerky flowers for your beefy boo.

Step 1: Take 1 slab of beef jerky and trim the corners to make a large oval shape.

Now we don't claim to be architects, but we do know a bit about our Classic Big Slab line and that it serves as a solid structure for the jerky rose petals that scream "Happy Valentine's Day!"

Thin, tough, and handmade, each jerky slab can be molded and manipulated into the form of a flower. 

Based on your Valentine's flavor palette, you'll be able to choose from three different flavors - OriginalTeriyaki, and Hot & Spicy.

Step 2: Position the oval slab around 1 beef jerky stick and wrap it around to form the beef jerky petal. 

We decided to go with our popular Sea Salt & Pepper Beef Sticks as the stem because it's salty and delicious! Plus it's the ideal sturdy base for the rose beef petals. 

If you want a different flavor of stick, feel free to browse the rest of the flavors here. We offer a wide variety of flavors, styles, and sizes. 

Step 3: Secure it in place by tying a piece of string around it. 

Repeat steps 1-3 to make as many beef jerky flowers as you'd like to complete the beef jerky flower bouquet. 

Congrats! You've just created the most delicious DIY Valentine's gift any carnivore would only dream of. And it wasn't too hard, right?

Now it's time to celebrate by gifting these Valentine's Day flowers to your significant other.
