To the dismay of its many fans, the McRib is disappearing from the McDonald's menu. After Nov. 14, McDonald's will no longer offer the pork sandwich nationwide (although some restaurants carry it periodically). Can’t wait for the McRib to come back? Take heart. McDonald’s’ elusuive sandwich is pretty easy to replicate at home.
The distinguishing feature of the McRib has to be its pork patty, which, miraculously (or creepily, depending on who you talk to) is boneless, yet shaped like a traditional rack of ribs. These culinary conundrums are manufactured by food wholesaler JTM Food Group, and called the 6’’ Boneless Pork Grillin’ Ribs.
According to the JTMwebsite, their products are available at most grocery retailers within a 300-mile radius of Cincinnati. If you don’t live within 300 miles of Cincinnati, Morningstar’s vegetarian “Hickory BBQ riblets” are an acceptable substitute.
