Yes, Oklahoma has an official state meal

by The 100 Companies

Oklahoma is one of only two states in the country that have an official state meal (Louisiana is the second). You’re going to need a lot of pans, hungry guests and a big table to serve it.

The official state meal was chosen in 1988 to reflect the state resident’s cultural and agricultural background. The menu: fried okra, cornbread, barbecue pork, squash, biscuits, sausage and gravy, grits, corn, strawberries (Oklahoma’s state fruit), chicken fried steak, pecan pie and black-eyed peas.

In homage to our state, check out “Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond’s must-have recipe for pecan pie for this holiday season.
