The Burger Lab: How To Make Oklahoma Onion Burgers

A Hamburger Today J. Kenji López-Alt 20 comments

Onions and beef go together like baths and bubbles, like Wallace and Gromit, like hitchhikers and towels, like...you get the picture. They belong together, long for each other's company. A burger without onions is still a burger, but tuck a few slices of raw sweet onion underneath or spread a pile of deeply browned caramelized onions on top and you've got yourself something that is suddenly more than a sum of its parts. Nowhere is this fact more well-known than in Oklahoma, home of the Onion Burger, a burger that is nearly as much onion as it is meat. Today we're gonna talk about how to make your own at home. More

Tulsa: Claud's Hamburgers

A Hamburger Today An AHT Field Agent 5 comments

While Ron's is certainly thriving, the burgers, though quite good, just aren't the same. Thankfully, the crown has been passed to Claud's. Drive down Peoria past the glitzy part to a neighborhood of cleaners and tire repair shops and you'll see a small white building just like the mom and pop roadside diners described 70 years ago in chapter 15 of Grapes of Wrath. Inside, little has changed since the day it opened. More

Drinks Liz Clayton 20 comments

Braum's services its regionally confined 275 stores from their headquarters in Tuttle, Oklahoma (pop. 4294),—they won't go more than 300 miles from the Tuttle dairy farm to ensure freshness. And though what you'll find amid the grocery aisles and burger counter may look like standard fare—you'll find the dairy bar to be truly a cut above. More

A Sandwich a Day Meister 5 comments

Is an Indian taco technically a sandwich? According to Merriam-Webster, "one slice of bread covered with food" qualifies—and it also happens to be a pitch-perfect definition of the Indian taco ($5.99) at Oklahoma City's venerable Tim's Drive Inn. More

In Videos: McCain and Obama on Cheese Slices

Erin Zimmer 5 comments

When an election lasts this long, people start doing all kinds of crazy stuff. For one man, that meant rendering the faces of both presidential candidates on slices of American cheese. Artist Esteban Pulido used liquid photo emulsion for his art piece, which will be on display in Normon, Oklahoma, at Forward Foods through the rest of the day. CNN even sent a crew out there to document the decomposition, which is nasty and, according to Pulido, metaphorical. Short video, after the jump.... More

The 30-Day Tulsa-Area Pizza Challenge

Slice Adam Kuban 4 comments

You know, too often, pizza outside of New York City or Chicago gets dissed (and, yes, I know this site does a fair amount of the dissing). That's why I love this Oklahoma Chowhound's spirited defense of Sooner State pie—and his or her solution: I take exception to that edict. Comments like that always seem to come from someone who lived on the coast or in NY, and when they say 'your pizza sucks' we seem to cower and take it without standing up for our pizza restaurants. I know darn good and well there is good pizza in the... More

Oklahoma legislators recently declared watermelon their new official state vegetable—state fruit was already spoken for by the strawberry.
