All you need to know about making a true McRib at home
Have you been waiting too long for a McRib comeback? Your prayers have been answered. With our cheat recipe, you can enjoy the porky goodness at home all year round.
Here's our McRib family dinner recipe for 4
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup cane sugar
- 2 tablespoons cumin
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
- 2 teaspoons coriander
- 2 teaspoons mustard powder
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons fennel seeds
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 pound St. Louis spareribs (pork ribs)
- 2 bottles of barbecue sauce
- 4 fluffy oblong sandwich buns
- 12 dill pickle chips
- 1 chopped onion
Preheat the oven to 320 ° F
In a bowl, mix all the spices together and use them to give a good rub over the ribs on both sides. Transfer the ribs to a baking dish, and spread with 1 bottle of barbecue sauce. Bake until the meat is cooked through (takes from 1 3/4 to 2 1/2 hours).
You can check to see if the ribs are done by using tongs to hold the rack and pulling the meat away from the bone. The meat should slide right off, without much effort.
Meanwhile, pour the second bottle of barbecue sauce into a small saucepan and let simmer on low heat.
Lightly toast the buns.
Pull the meat off the ribs with kitchen tongs and cut them into thin strips.
Divide the strips into 4 portions. In a bowl, coat each portion generously with the heated BBQ sauce. Then assemble the McRibs like so: place the meat on the bottom halves of the buns, then mount with a handful of chopped onions and 3 pickle chips. Close with the top buns.
Serve with a side of fries and enjoy!
