Mystery Solved: How McDonald's Makes Their McRibs

November 5, 2014

Yep, just how I imagined it. Right down to the old lady in the baseball helmet.

Ever wonder how your favorite fast food is made? Well if you want to keep enjoying it, it's probably best not to. This is a video from McDonald's revealing the McRib-making process, from raw meat to rocking back and forth on the shitter, angry at yourself for ordering two, but not regretting it. Obviously, since the video comes FROM McDonald's, it's fair to question the authenticity of the process shown. Fun fact: I tried to give myself a barbeque sauce IV once and almost died. Thank God I didn't, but I bet I would have been delicious if I did.

Keep going for the video. Or skip it, I don't care I'm going to BK anyways.

Thanks to PYY, who agrees the best thing on the menu at McDonald's is the reflection of the Taco Bell across the street.

    This Malcolm X wannabe is a total sell out.

    I was eating a McRib while watching this, and I didn't throw up. I'm proud of myself.

    Fast Fact: Each McRib sandwich is approximately 500 calories.

    It will never be as pure as ham. ;)

    Haters will continue to hate regardless. I've had the McRib and look forward to it when it's available again. I eat McDonald's occasionally. The key word is occasionally. It's nice to have it once in a while. It's like a vacation for the mouth. Someone below asked who puts sugar in meat. Look up some barbecue recipe. You'll see some BBQ containing brown sugar, maple syrup, regular sugar, molases and so on. All forms of sugar to sweeten the barbecue. How do you think most of them get the bark? This one added dextrose. Yes, it's processed sweetener that
    can is extracted from different starchy plants, mainly corn. I'm not pushing you guys to eat at McDonald's. We have choices. Some of us choose to eat this. Leave us alone. Don't criticize if you see me with a McDonald's bag. Yeah, it's unhealthy because of the sugar, salt, and fatty. That's why it's occasionally.

    Hi I too eat a Mickie Dees but do you realize that they consider anyone who eats any meal ( Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner) 2 times a week a heavy user....Interesting that is their own internal wording for customer.

  • sane37

    Well, most of their users are heavy.

  • Stephane

    LOL Fat jokes... wow that is good intelligent discussion.

  • Gordon freeman

    McRib pie a la mode. EMT! GO!

  • tedsmitts

    Ha. ha ha. HAHAHA. Just like Grandma's. Grandma made McRib's? Ha. HAHAH.

  • Julien Prévost

    Seriously, come & eat in Mcdo' France...with european and french legislations, you just can't eat shitty things like this...

  • GreyGanado

    No, eat at German McD's, it's basically the same with a little less spit.

  • Dano

    I call bullshit. I've had one of these abominations, it didn't fucking taste like pork.

    Pork, water, dextrose and BHA preservative.... That's all... Uh huh, sure.

  • chinky chink

    why is it unbelievable that he's never had a McRib before? I've never had one either.

  • Stephane

    I have eaten and like MC RibPork BUTTT They really glossed over the Dextrose and how much of it is added ... Sugar is the Devil...
    Shoulder Arm Picnic
    Pork shoulder arm picnic contains arm bone, shank bone, and a portion of blade bone. It also contains shoulder muscles interspersed with fat. The shank and part of the lower area are covered with skin. It is usually prepared by roasting

    I think it's pretty irrelevant when you consider the whole thing is covered in barbecue sauce. But, if you're really curious, a McRib has a total of 11 gram of sugar. An apple has around 20 grams.

  • Stephane

    ON Record I like the MC Rib ... I shall end this flame war as REFINED sugar and natural sugar are completely different. Since the 50's refined sugar has been added to processed foods of all types in north America and in the states there is a push to have "Added Sugar" added to the food labeling and there is a great deal of pushback from all industries. Sugar has been added to a myriad of different foods that you would not think contain sugar. Since Fries and apples are the only 2 items on the McDonalds menu that do not contain ADDED sugar. I do eat at McDonalds I am not a hater but open both your eyes to the industrialization of our food supply. Meat does not need sugar. Especially if you are adding sauce to it.

    Grant Imahara: most easily bought myth buster. I think I saw the last of his dignity evaporate through his eyes during this. Also i want to point out Wes is a teacher who actually asks "what are the preservatives for"

  • gabenANDeggs

    Nothing wrong with this. Probably been a case of thinking it would be worse than it really is. I mean.. pork is pretty cheap anyway..

  • James Sterlington

    Often time, teachers will ask obvious questions in informational videos not because they don't know the answer, but because their students may not know. Not trollin' on you, just pointing that out. :D

  • RareAwesomeman

    haha, I know you are right, and to be honest I hadn't thought about it that way, but I can't help but feel my hope for humanity fade when they do this kind of thin in ads
