What In Holy Heck Is The McRibster And Why Can't We Get One Here?

Every time McDonald’s trots out its McRib sandwich, fans clamor for the saucy, vaguely pork-y delicacy. But will they be wiling to go to Austria for the McRibster?

According to the ad, the McRibster features, “Saftiges Schweinefleisch, Speck, Pepper Jack K√§se*, knackinger Eisbergsalat, rote Zwiebeln, k√∂stliche Honig Senf-Sauce und w√ºrzige Sweet Chili-Sauce.”

Thankfully, the folks at BurgerBusiness.com translated that as “juicy pork, bacon, pepper-Jack cheese, and crunchy iceberg lettuce, red onion, delicious honey-mustard sauce and spicy sweet chili sauce.”

The limited-time offer seems even less rib-like than the McRib. At least that has barbecue sauce. The McRibster reminds us of a fried pork chop sandwich. If anyone is traveling in Austria (or if you happen to reside there) while it’s on the menu, we’d definitely love to hear what this sandwich tastes like.
