100% edible and 100% meat, they are so easy to make a cavemen could do it!
Sure, you could spend $140 for a pair of meaty briefs that are only partially edible, but who wants to work around all those metal shards and strings in the heat of passion?
Step 1: Materials
- 2 lbs Ground Beef
- 3 Original Slim Jims
- 3/4 cup Soy Sauce
- 2 tbsp Hot Sauce
- 1 tsp. liquid smoke
- Seasoning - red pepper flakes, celery salt, onion powder, salt, pepper
- Rolling Pin
- Parchment Paper
- X-acto knife
Step 2: Season Meat
The first problem was cutting the steak into thin even slices. The slices needed to be cut evenly and have a large surface area so I could cut the underwear pattern out of it. I tried to use the trick of slightly freezing the meat then slice it, but I still had a hard time cutting even slices. Also, the grain of the steak started to separate in the drying process, which isn't a problem for making basic beef jerky, but was certainly a problem for structurally sound briefs. If you try to make this with steak, I recommend having the butcher pre-slice the steak for you at about 1/4" - 3/8" thick.
The prep for ground beef jerky is much simpler than with steak jerky. Ground beef is ideal for this project because I can customize the size and shape of the jerky I dehydrate. This is helpful when cutting out the underwear pattern.
Marinating Ground Beef: Put ground beef in a large bowl and add all the seasoning. Mix together with your hands!!
