I’d try with chicken rather than pork

I want to experiment and see if this would be useful in improving the texture of seitan products and patties made with plant protein.

We have yet to try this with a plant-based protein, but the idea has crossed our minds. Let us know if this works for you.

I would like to do the recipe for McRib you just demonstrated

I was thinking meatballs; glad you confirmed this would be a good treatment for meatballs.

I wasn’t really clear on exactly what the Sodium TriPolyphosphate actually DOES. I understand it’s an emulsifier, but is it just a texture thing in this recipe? Would the meat cook up basically the same way if you just ground it up with spices and cooked??

Use the pork emulsion but Panko-crust it and serve with tonkatsu sauce!

Mc Rib nuggets would be a cool appetizer for a party. You could cook them ahead of time, freeze them, and bake them. I’m very interested in what I can do with this product and to tell others about it.

Looks like a really easy way to make breakfast sausage patties….

I got my Sodium Tripolyphosphate and made the Mp Char Su Ribs sandwich with pickled Daikon Radish and Kimchi. WOW one of the best sandwich so far….
