This Is What An Uncooked McRib Looks Like

Gird your stomach muscles, oh ye lovers of the elusive, seasonal McRib. Because when you see what it looks like before it’s delivered on its bready bed covered in barbecue sauce, you might not be so excited to actually eat it.

The above photo posted to Reddit claims to show what an unthawed McRib patty thing looks like before it’s cooked, and it’s none too pleasing to the eye.

Of course, it will someday become a 500-calorie glob of meat stuff (sold at a Canadian McDonald’s, it appears), but in this pic it looks like sort of pink cardboardy foam, or maybe something you’d nestle in a box to protect a TV while shipping it.

How’s your appetite?

    I’ve never been a fan of the mcrib. Now the filet o Fish. Oh yea. Love it.

    I don’t get what the big deal is. It just looks like a slab of uncooked meat. Cooked and slathered in BBQ sauce, it would probably look about right.

      Dropped in to say the same thing. It’s factory-made frozen food. Everyone knows this. I’m not getting what the deal here is.

      Honestly, when you think about how the finished McRib looks like, you kind of have to admire the engineering/design that went into it. It’s pretty obvious that they engineered the frozen piece with shrinkage in-mind to where the end product looks a lot like an actual (tiny) slab of bbq ribs.

    No different than any other frozen, uncooked, and unsauced meat product you might buy except that it appears to have a little bit more freezer burn on it than most people would stand for if they were cooking it themselves.
