Green jackfruit is often referred to as the vegetarian’s meat. It is the fruit of a tree native to South Asia and Southeast Asia. When green jackfruit cooks and softens, it begins to pull apart, taking on an appearance similar to pulled pork. The hardest part of this recipe is finding canned green jackfruit (available in most Asian markets). You can occasionally find fresh green jackfruit, but it’s extremely messy, sticky, and difficult to cut.

BBQ Jackfruit [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan

Calories

483

Serves

4-6

Ingredients

  • Two 20-ounce cans green jackfruit in water, drained
  • 11/2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced medium

Preparation

  1. Rinse the green jackfruit thoroughly.
  2. Place all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on medium heat for 4–5 hours. Jackfruit will begin to fall apart and have the consistency of pulled pork.
  3. After cooking for 4–5 hours, use a fork to pull apart the fruit and stir thoroughly.
  4. Turn the slow cooker to low heat and cook for another 1–2 hours.

 

Notes

Make this recipe your own with whatever barbecue sauce you decide to use. It’s really up to you, since there are so many barbecue flavors available. Be sure to choose sauces with no added oils and a low sodium content.

This recipe gets better the longer you cook it. The jackfruit falls apart like tender pulled pork and absorbs flavor perfectly. In fact, we like it better as leftovers!

Serve this recipe on a whole wheat bun and top with coleslaw. This goes perfectly with baked sweet potato fries!

Don\'t you have to spend a few minutes pulling the seeds out of the fruit, even in the canned version??
