McDonalds McRib : Behold the Barbecue wonder. “The tasty fan favorite slathered in tangy barbecue sauce, slivered onions and tart pickles all on a hoagie style bun.”
Strangely, growing up in the southern, I had eaten enough BBQ riblet sandwiches at school to know not to order it from McDonalds. The McRib concept was very weird to me. A boneless, but rib shaped pork pattie on a bun. Evenly though you can’t chew through bones, the purposely shaped the pattie with bones. As sooon as I thought about the amount of processing that had to go into making a pork pattie, I stopped eating them. Why would they make a McRib or Riblet or a pulled pork sandwich? Probably a lot cheaper. But forget what I think, the McRib has a cult following. People worship this thing and it has re-emerged on the McDonalds menu. So vegan-ize it, we will.
Vegan/Vegetarian BBQ Pork Sandwich
1 Gardein Southern BBQ Riblet
2 tablespoons vegan BBQ sauce (optional)
1 Vegan hoagie bun
3 Hamburger pickle slices

Prepare the Gardein Southern BBQ Riblet as directed on the package.
I am using the boiled directions. (Place the sealed riblet package in boiling water for 7 to 8 minutes).
Place the Vegan BBQ “rib” on the hoagie bun. Dowse on more BBQ sauce if you dare.
Stack on pickles and onions.
Enjoy your faux faux BBQ pork ribs sandwich.
