"BBQ Pulled Pork"

Believe it or not, you can turn Asian fruit, Jackfruit into something that resembles the texture and taste of BBQ.  I'm not kidding - as Axl Rose would put it, "all you need is a little patience."

BBQ Pulled Pork
Serves: 2
meat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, oil-free, soy-free, gluten-free

  • 20 oz. can of Young Jackfruit in Brine (salt & water)
  • 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce

  1. Rinse Jackfruit several times to remove the Brine
  2. In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, heat the Jackfruit pieces for 3-4 minutes
  3. Reduce to a simmer and add BBQ Sauce, stir to coat Jackfruit
  4. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally and adding more Sauce if needed
  5. The Jackfruit is ready once the pieces can be easily shredded with two forks to resemble pulled pork pieces
  6. Now the hard part, let the "Pulled Pork"marinate in the fridge over night (very important step)
  7. Heat through the following day & enjoy!

Hoff Thoughts: You can find Jackfruit in an Asian Supermarket.  If you fail to marinate overnight, you're not likely going to enjoy this dish.  Allowing the BBQ to infuse into the fruit and overpower the Brine flavor is key.
