Here’s How You Make a Big Mac (Kind Of)


McDonald's rolled out a promotional video that features the company's executive chef Dan Coudreaut making a Big Mac at home, and you know it's casual because he makes a point of removing his chef's jacket. You can watch it below, if you're interested, but the interesting thing about the video is that it's less instructional only an idiot needs to be told how to layer burger fixings on a bun and way more about making McDonald's signature agro-burger look like a wholesome, unprocessed product.

Watch Coudreaut as he seasons and cooks the patties by hand, as he freshly slices onions and a sesame bun, and as he puts together the burger's special sauce nothing more than a mix of mayo, relish, vinegar, mustard, and some spices. However, a quick glimpse at the Big Mac ingredient list reveals a few items missing from Coudreaut's sauce: things such as propylene glycol alginate and vegetable protein. But we can chalk that up to the fact that he's using store-bought mayo, which is basically just eggs and oil and a shitload of chemicals.

Even still, we'd rather have a hamburger cooked at home.
