Picture this: a plate piled high with tender, smoky, and succulent BBQ pulled jackfruit that’s so flavorful, even the most die-hard carnivores will be asking for seconds. This vegan twist on a classic BBQ pulled pork is a game-changer.
- 2 cans of young green jackfruit in water or brine
- 1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 4 hamburger buns or rolls
- Coleslaw (optional, for serving)
- Start by draining and rinsing the canned jackfruit. Then, using your hands or a fork, shred the jackfruit into small, pulled-pork-like pieces.
- In a large skillet, sauté the sliced onion and minced garlic until they become translucent.
- Add the shredded jackfruit to the skillet along with the smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, allowing the jackfruit to absorb the flavors.
- Pour in the BBQ sauce and stir to coat the jackfruit evenly. Reduce the heat and simmer for another 10-15 minutes until the jackfruit is tender and has soaked up the BBQ goodness.
- Toast the hamburger buns or rolls, and then scoop a generous portion of the BBQ pulled jackfruit onto each bun.
- Serve your Succulent BBQ Pulled Jackfruit sandwiches with a side of coleslaw if desired. Enjoy!
