Ooof. What's the meat made of?
Pig innards and plenty of salt. Typically, "restructured meat product" includes pig bits like tripe, heart, and scalded stomach, says Whet Moser at Chicago Magazine, citing a 1995 article by Robert Mandigo, a professor at the University of Nebraska. These parts are cooked and blended with salt and water to extract salt-soluble proteins, which act as a "glue" that helps bind the reshaped meat together.

It's kind of sad. Most people wouldn't ever touch tripe, despite it being healthy and pretty delicious, but they'll gobble it up if it's in an unrecognizable, heavily sauced form.

I saw a picture of the pink mush that processed foods are made of. Kinda looks like cherry frozen yogurt.

I tried one of these the other day and it would be a stretch to call it edible.

I will never understand this or the Shamrock Shake phenomenon. Then again, I only do Mickey Ds when I have no money, but usually just for breakfast.

The McRib is a terrible, terrible sandwich.

I hate myself for loving it so.....

I got half way through one the other day and wondered what the blazes! I was doing. It was like one of those old lunchlady salisbury steaks drowning in bbq sauce. The onions serve to distract you from this fact, but did not work in this case.

I consider myself a pretty terrible eater. I've tried basically every disgusting mess that all of the major burger chains have had the gall to stick inside a bun. And I've liked many of them. I'll gorge myself on White Castle until I can only move on flatulence-fueled momentum. But the McRib was awful. The onions were half-cooked. The BBQ sauce was little more than ketchup and some hideous flavoring. The "meat" was rubbery and not at all like I remembered it from my childhood. I have to question the taste of anyone who claims to have enjoyed a McRib. My junior high school cafeteria made better processed, reconstituted, vaguely rib-shaped meat sandwiches. And for a hell of a lot cheaper too.

I agree with this 100%.

I'm always amazed that stuff like the Big N' Tasty, The McDLT, and the Arch Deluxe all fail while sewage like this sells. While this makes me happy as a McDonald's stockholder, it makes me weep as a human being.

Arch Deluxe was the only "special burger" I ever liked.

I have no idea what food-like products make up the McRib, but I am sure that it's existence is due to America's favorite ingredients: PR and advertising. And fat.
