If you're looking for the best copycat McRib sandwich recipe, you're not alone. Although the McDonald's McRib has returned in select locations this fall, the beloved boneless pork sandwich will only be around "for a limited time," according to the famous burger chain. And anyone who's familiar with the elusive McRib knows that there's no telling just how limited that time will be.
Here's the good news: Food bloggers from all over the internet offer their own copycat McRib recipes, often with creative spins on the classic sandwich. Whether it's using a slow cooker or developing a creative sauce, these cooking wizards have all brought the spirit of the McRib to life in tasty new ways. Thanks to their genius tips and tricks, you can get a McRib fix all year long — which means not staring at that McRib locator and waiting for the sandwich to pop up near you. But even if the McRib is currently being sold at your local McDonald's, these recipes also give you a chance to try something new in the kitchen. For folks who are trying to cook at home more often instead of eating out all the time, the convenience of these recipes is also a major bonus. Either way, you can delight friends and family members with something that's not only deliciously familiar, but also homemade. It's a true win-win, if you ask us.
It goes without saying that it's incredibly tough to perfectly recreate the McDonald's McRib at home. (After all, if it were easy, then the sandwich wouldn't be as special as it is!) So don't get discouraged if your homemade recipe doesn't turn out exactly like the one you get in the drive-thru. Instead, simply enjoy the tasty flavors for what they are, and be sure to share them with all of your loved ones. But come prepared — we can pretty much guarantee that they'll ask for seconds!
