Chef John's Copycat McRib® Sandwich
I tip my cap to a certain fast food franchise for coming up with the idea for a boneless baby back rib sandwich, the only downside being that they use about 60 mystery ingredients-- ribs not necessarily being one of them. That's why you should try this easy homemade version with real ribs; simply bake, chill, cut, sauce, finish on the grill, and voila! One of the best sandwiches I've ever had.
Recipe Summary test
Make sure you don't get the larger St. Louis-style ribs. Feel free to season them with any dry rub of your choice.
For the slaw, I used my sweet-hot mustard coleslaw.
Nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of dry rub. The actual amount consumed will vary.
For the rolls, I used my sesame seed hamburger bun recipe, making 6 rectangles instead of 8 round buns.
