Definitely my favorite way to enjoy jackfruit. It’s been a long time since I’ve eaten pulled pork but I think this recipe tastes pretty darn similar. If you have the time and the ingredients, give my BBQ recipe linked above a try!


Pulled Jackfruit Ingredients:

  • 1 can of jackfruit

  • Salt to taste

  • Pepper to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon of smoked paprika

  • 1 tablespoon of water

  • 2 cups of BBQ Sauce

Slaw Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of shredded green cabbage

  • ¼ cup of shredded carrots

  • ¼ cup of thinly sliced red onions

  • ½ cup of vegan mayo (check out this oil free recipe from FOK)

  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon of sea salt

  • Pepper to taste

Additional Ingredients:

  • Whole wheat buns

  • Pickles


In a medium bowl, add shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and thinly sliced red onions. In a separate bowl, mix together the vegan mayo, lemon juice, salt, and pepper then add to the shredded veggies and mix well. Let rest in the refrigerator so flavors can combine. Drain jackfruit. Pull jackfruit apart with your hands, then place in a skillet with 1 tablespoon of water, salt, pepper, and smoked paprika. Cook in the skillet on medium heat for about 10-12 minutes, stirring frequently. If the pan begins to dry, add more water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Next, add in the BBQ sauce and let cook on low heat for an additional 10 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. Add pulled jackfruit, slaw, and pickles to the bun and enjoy!
