How to Cook a Mississippi Slugburger with George Motz | Burger Scholar Sessions

    Dauer: 04:44

    Burger Scholar George Motz teaches you how to cook a hyper-regional slugburger from Northern Mississippi. Borne out of the Great Depression, the slugburger patty combines beef and bread crumbs-a method that was used to extend the meat supply. As the bread crumbs toast on the griddle, they absorb the rendered beef fat, creating the ultimate crispy burger. Here is your master class on how to make a regional slugburger at home.

Respect from Tulsa. Grew up in restaurants literally, family business We have been doing the fried onion burger since the early 80’s. My sister’s father in-law had a stand in the early 60’s that my mother used to go to , he was tied to Hank’s and Jim’s Jumbo burgers ( 2 iconic Tulsa burger joints )

I know a thing a two about slugburgers having grown up on them, so I have some issues with this video. First, the slugburger also exists in North Alabama (i.e. Penn's Hamburgers in Decatur, AL) and Southern Tennessee. Second, and most importantly, the slugburger is deepfried, not grilled. Perhaps there are places that call them "slugburgers" and don't fry their burgers, but a true slugburger is always fried. BTW, respect the hell out of George, but he has it wrong here. Check out this short documentary for more on slugburgers: https://vimeo.com/96843734 And: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slugburger

I think they put much more crumbs in there. Like probably 25% or even more that mass of the meat it self. I mean, the idea is to make more from a little meat right?

My mom would always add bread crumbs to her burgers. I was never a fan of it. It just came out tasting like meatloaf and I've never been too much of a fan of meatloaf. She made them super thick and they didn't get crunchy though, so maybe this would be a better method.

Is the reason why they changed the recipe to ground pork and soy flour because it is even cheaper than beef and bread crumbs?

I'm from Corinth, Slugburger capital. That is NOT considered a slugburger. They are the pork with soy, like you said. Also, served with mustard, pickles, AND onions on a white bun. Just a bit misleading to be calling that a slugburger. I don't know of ANYONE who has ever eaten theirs made like that. We would throw a fit if we asked for a slugburger and was served that.

i made these today for lunch and dinner. so freaking good i had to eat it twice in one day. i used different topping though i just followed the patty preparation the lunch burger was tomatoes, sautéed onions mayonnaise and ketchup. the dinner burger did avocado, tomato and mayo. both were so good. i made my patties way thicker though. seems this dude loves those super thin patties.

@DembBased i cannot say for sure whether it is a lie. the places burger paradise covered were already famous historic burger joints. Im sure that george not only watched the show but read and watched a ton of other stuff while studying the history of burgers. you do raise a good point, I would love for him to share with us some of the pieces of burger literature he has studied!

@Rising Horizon Gaming not at all, I’m glad he wrote his book and I’m glad he’s been able to thrive off of it. I just don’t like the fact he claims to have done all this research himself, rather than giving the credit to where it’s due.
