Description

This BBQ jackfruit looks just like real deal shredded BBQ and it’s loaded with BBQ flavor. Use as a meatless option in your favorite BBQ recipes! 


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 14 oz can green/unripe jackfruit packed in water
  • 2 teaspoons olive or avocado oil
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon paprika
  • 1/2 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce (store-bought is fine)*

Instructions

  1. Drain jackfruit and break apart pieces by hand until shredded.
  2. Heat a medium/large skillet over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of oil. Once hot, add onion and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Season with a little salt and pepper and stir occasionally so the garlic doesn’t burn.
  3. While onions and garlic are cooking, combine BBQ spices (paprika, brown sugar, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder and sea salt) in a small bowl.
  4. Add shredded jackfruit and spices into the skillet. Toss well to combine. Turn heat to low and let jackfruit cook for 1-2 minutes with the spices before adding BBQ sauce. Coat jackfruit in the sauce and cook for another 3-4 minutes, until jackfruit is warm throughout. Serve warm.


Notes

*For store-bought BBQ sauce I like Annie’s and Simple Girl.
