McRib Sandwich


Fakeaway McRib Sandwich (serves 2)

If you are from the UK, then you will know the only way you can get your hands on a McRib is to make it yourself and I'm here to show you exactly how to do it. I truly loved this burger and was fuming when McDonald's took it off the menu. I did manage to find one during a trip to Germany about six years ago and it was great. It brought back fond memories so I had to learn how to make my own. Don't worry, if you haven't got an air fryer, you can also do this in your oven. It may take slightly longer to cook through but just doublecheck the internal temperature reaches at least 75c.




  • 400g good quality pork mince
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. BBQ seasoning
  • 1 tsp. garlic granules
  • 1 tsp. onion granules
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • BBQ sauce
  • 2 sub rolls toasted
  • White onion sliced
  • Gherkins (optional as I hate them)


  1. Place your pork mince into a bowl then add in the salt, BBQ seasoning, garlic, granules, onion granules and black pepper. Mix well, then shape into two rectangular patties measuring approximately 6” x 3” if you wet your hands, this will make the job easier, then use your finger to make four indents within the meat, this will replicate the original shop bought version.
  2. Place the patties into your air fryer and cook at 200c for 14 minutes or the internal temp reaches at least 75c. Halfway through brush with BBQ sauce.
  3. Spread some BBQ sauce onto the base of a toasted sub roll, place the rib patty on top, then add some onions and gherkins before topping with the bun lid.
