Recipe type: vegan
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 small onion, finely sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 cans of Jackfruit in water or brine, drained and rinsed well
  • ½ cup water
  • ¾ cup vegan BBQ sauce
  1. In a large freezer bag add coconut oil, paprika, chili powder, and maple syrup and mix well.
  2. Add jackfruit to the marinade and allow to marinate for a minimum of 2 hours either on the counter, or if marinating overnight, place in the fridge.
  3. When the jackfruit has marinated and is ready to go, place a pan on medium heat, and heat some coconut oil.
  4. When your oil is hot, add onion and garlic to the pan. Cook and mix until onions are clear.
  5. Add water and jackfruit, mix well, and bring to a simmer for about 20 mins, covering halfway through to avoid drying out the meat.
  6. After 20 mins, break up the jackfruit using a a masher or a fork, and reduce heat even more.
  7. Cover and continue to cook on low for another 15-20 minutes, stirring often to break up large pieces of jackfruit.
  8. Cook until all liquid has evaporated and remove from heat.
  9. Add BBQ sauce to pan and coat jackfruit, add more if you like your pulled pork really messy and gooey.
