The McRib is an iconic sandwich that has been around for decades. It's made of a pork patty, barbecue sauce, onions, and pickles, and is shaped to resemble traditional ribs. McDonald's freezes the burger to preserve its flavor and freshness, just as it does with other items like Big Macs and McChickens. But what happens if you want to freeze the McRib yourself? Is it possible? The answer is yes! You can freeze the McRib sandwich, but there are a few things you should know before you do.
McDonald's told ABC News that customers love the McRib because of its fun and wonderful way. The McRib is made with a boneless pork burger that is spread with barbecue sauce and topped with onions and pickles. There is even a third-degree difference in the recipe between the McRib and a real rib; all but the latter are restructured. However, TIME points out that it's not as simple as pork shoulder, there are about 70 ingredients in McRib, including azodicarbonamide, ammonium sulfate and polysorbate 80.
If you want to freeze your own McRib sandwich, you should follow these steps exactly: First, make sure you get the sandwich without lettuce. Then, gently press another sheet of parchment paper or non-stick paper over the top of the pork burgers and place the entire pan in the freezer for a couple of hours, or until the pork is frozen and solid. When you're ready to eat your frozen McRib sandwich, take it out of the freezer and allow it to thaw completely in the refrigerator. This will ensure that all of the flavors are preserved and that you get the best possible taste.
With such an exclusive product, McRib is able to combine flavor combinations of exclusivity, scarcity and seasonality. Fish fillet, chicken nuggets, hash brown potatoes, and several of the other breakfast options also freeze well. Known as a miniature rib rack, LaBoneless McRib is a 512-inch (14 cm) shredded pork burger that has the shape of miniature ribs accompanied by barbecue sauce, onions and pickles. So if you're looking for a way to enjoy your favorite McDonald's sandwich at home, freezing it is definitely an option! Just make sure you follow these steps exactly for best results.
