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.

Probably because that pic was sent out showing the frozen formed mean puck that was the mcrib before it was cooked.

I don't know what it is about the McRib - nostalgia maybe - but I love them.  I grew up in Cincinnati and the McRib was only available periodically - and without rhyme or reason.  We could go three months or two years before they were back on the menu.  When they were - the McRib was available at every McDonald's in the tri-state region.

 

The other thing was you never knew how long they would stay on the menu - again, no rhyme or reason.  It could be a couple weeks or a few months.  No matter, when they were selling McRibs - you got there, fast!  You order at least a couple each time - and get back as quickly and often as possible.

 

Still to this day, I perk up whenever I hear McDonald's is selling McRibs again.  Not that they are really all that tasty - rather it's the sense of urgency from knowing it's a rare, limited "special" occasion - coupled with great childhood memories.

It looks like the animal they made them from is now extinct. :(

Don't they just wait for pork prices to hit rock-bottom and then make them?

No. They aren't actually made from pork.  :o
