I like the McRib.  I even like the Burger King knock-off McRib.  A (slightly larger than) footlong McRib for $5?  I'd be down.

Last time the McRib was here, the McDonald's I go to most had a deal where you could add one to any extra value meal for $1.

I wonder how many cases of diabetes that triggered.

Seriously, can someone please explain the appeal of the McRib to me? I am not a food snob at all; in fact, I'll freely admit to loving just about everything on McDonald's menu.

But the McRib is just gross. Anything that has to be (and can be) pressed into a shape like that can't be made from stuff you would want to eat.

There's plenty of culinary precedent for formed food products - hot dogs, terrines, scrapple, many lunch meats, sausages, heck, even burger patties.  Think of the McRib as a BBQ burger with a patty formed out of pork instead of beef.

Personally, I'm not a fan of BBQ sauce on beef burgers, but I like it on the McRib.  BBQ sauce and pork just seem to go together so much more naturally.

McRib is standard in Germany, as has been for 15+ years (ie., as long as I can remember).

Just a normal version though, but who cares, buy 3.

The massive size of it caught her eye.  She knows it must be from America.

Now she is considering whether or not to stuff it into her mouth.  For $5, she'll stay long time.  At McDonald's!

Technically, it should be named McPorkShoulder.

I'm sure it's not called "long pig" for no reason, but given that it's third-hand knowledge, I'll call it an assumption on my end.

Maybe the McRib is what modern Americans taste like, what with having nearly-pure corn syrup running through our veins.

I will not rest until there's McScrapple.
 
2013-07-04 08:30:43 PM
For US folks, there's actually a generic version that's arguably better on a few fronts (sans onions, though) - Walmart's Great value Barbecue Sandwiches. Same shape, same basic size, same obviously stamped-out meat patty. Different, less soggy bun.

LegacyDL: I'd rather go to Canada and get a Double Big Mac with a side of Poutine.

/My arteries just clogged typing that


As a Canadian (Toronto area), I was quite stunned when I found poutine on the menu in a Niagara Falls (ON) McD's last month... I'd never seen it in *any* McD's before, anywhere across the country...

had to try it... it was probably the worst poutine I'd ever had... As far as fast food poutine goes, Harvey's is probably the most edible, followed by KFC's... Wendy's just introduced theirs last summer, and I found it nearly as bad as the McD's...

but yeah, Double Big Mac's and Double Quarter Pounder's are decent (as far as McD's menu items go), the real winner where I'm concerned though is the Double Fish Fillet which they introduced here last year... mmmm...

Nickster79: Seriously, can someone please explain the appeal of the McRib to me?


Theory: real bbq pork ribs are a popular treat that people don't cook that often, and common low-grade versions are messy and don't give a lot of meat by overall volume. The McRib has similarities in flavor, fattiness, and even shape (however comically fake it is), but without those drawbacks. I think their loose interpretation of the real thing evoked positive memories so it gained traction, and by now it's popular in its own right.

I've had the Poutine at KFC in Canada, and I agree, it's actually pretty darn good.  I'm surprised none of the fast food chains have tried to market it towards an American audience yet.  I mean really - french fries, cheese curds, and gravy, that should be a no brainer hit in America.

Same by me. Of course most of the people got about 6 and they were split up in the office one per.

I actually don't like them. I think it's the barbecue sauce they use that just makes me dislike it. I am picky though, I tend to make my own BBQ sauces.

As someone who lives in Japan, I'll tell you not to be jealous.  Lotteria is pretty cheap, cut-rate place.  There are acceptable menu items, and menu items that one should really just avoid.  Anything hamburger-related is pretty gross, their fish sandwiches taste like cardboard, and their milkshakes tend to be runny and unpleasant.  I'm not going to even try this one.  I avoid Lotteria altogether.

On the other hand, Mos Burger is farking awesome.  A bit pricy, but worth it.

I assume you eat more than their salads. Do you really think pressing random cow parts into a "burger" shape or pressing random chicken parts into a "filet" shape is any worse than pressing random pig parts into a three bone spare rib shape?

"McRib-style patties"?  Isn't McRib already "rib style"? So these are like something that are like ribs.

Almost, but not quite, entirely unlike rib.

I've just always thought pressing meat into a form that looks like it has bones in it is just wrong in a way that I can't really articulate.
