The Star Ingredient: Jackfruit

Jackfruit is a tropical fruit with a fibrous and meaty texture, making it an excellent substitute for pulled pork. With its neutral taste, jackfruit easily absorbs flavors, making it perfect for savory dishes. The tender, shredded consistency of cooked jackfruit mimics pulled pork, creating a mouthwatering and satisfying experience.


  • 2 cans young green jackfruit in brine or water
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 burger buns or bread rolls
  • Your favorite coleslaw or salad for topping


  1. Drain and rinse the jackfruit thoroughly. Pat dry and remove the core and seeds, then chop into smaller pieces.
  2. In a large skillet, heat some oil over medium heat and sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic until fragrant and golden.
  3. Add the jackfruit to the skillet and sauté for a few minutes until it starts to brown.
  4. In a bowl, mix the vegetable broth, tomato paste, soy sauce, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, smoked paprika, cumin powder, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Pour this mixture over the jackfruit and stir to coat evenly.
  5. Cover the skillet and let the jackfruit simmer for about 15-20 minutes until it becomes tender and easy to shred.
  6. Using a fork, shred the jackfruit pieces in the skillet to achieve the pulled “pork” texture.
  7. Continue to simmer the jackfruit uncovered for an additional 10 minutes to let the flavors meld together and the sauce thicken slightly.
  8. Toast the burger buns or bread rolls until they are warm and slightly crispy.
  9. Assemble the sandwiches by placing a generous amount of the jackfruit pulled “pork” on the bottom half of each bun.
  10. Top with your favorite coleslaw or salad to add a fresh and crunchy element to the sandwich.
  11. Close the sandwich with the top half of the bun and press gently to secure the filling.
  12. Serve the vegan jackfruit pulled “pork” sandwiches immediately, and enjoy the explosion of flavors!
