How to Prepare the Pork for the McRib Sandwich
For preparing this, you need to buy pork meat from the belly part of the body. The excess fat of this part makes the pork to be soft and juicy for the sandwich. Trim the meat in proper rectangular shape as per the shape of the sandwich roll and season with salt and pepper. In an oven-safe non-stick pot, heat oil to sear the pork on both the sides until it becomes golden brown. Now remove the pork from the pot and to the remaining oil add the chopped onions, carrots and celery. Stir the vegetables for few minutes and then put thyme, bay leaves and some amount of chicken stock or water. Let the liquid reduce to half by boiling and then bring back the pork into the pot. Remove the pot from the stovetop, close the lid and set inside the 350F preheated oven. This will be cooking for around 3 hours until the meat becomes tender. When the meat is done, pick it up from the pot with a slotted spatula. Put enough barbecue sauce on the pork to coat both the sides properly. Place this sauced meat inside the sandwich, along with the pickles and onions.
