Oklahoma-Style Onion Smash Burgers
A Regional American Classic
This week’s recipe is for Oklahoma-style onion smash burgers. This is a true regional American classic and one of my favorite ways to make a burger.
The technique is very similar to a classic smash burger with one added element— a big pile of thinly sliced onions are added to each patty. When you flip the patty, the burger finishes cooking on top of the onions, which cook down and absorb the juices from the burger. Because the onions are sliced so thin, they cook down quickly and take on a soft and jammy texture that’s just incredible.
I’m experimenting with a new feature on Substack called chats. If you have the Substack app, you should be able to hop into a chat for this post there. Feel free to pop in and ask any questions!
