Vegan Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Okay, this looks soooooo good! I know what I’m gonna make over the weekend now 😛

Over the week, I received a video request for a vegan recipe, and also over that week I tried a piece of jackfruit. I can honestly say it was really good and after reading about it, I learned jackfruits are used in a lot of vegan recipes. So I decided to post one for those of you who are vegan or are looking for some creative cooking. 🙂

I really hope you enjoy this video, and let me know if you guys give it a try. Also, if you have any requests at all, feel free to leave a comment? 😀

    Servings: 6

    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium onion, sliced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    3 cups jackfruit, either fresh or canned
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon pepper
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon paprika
    ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 teaspoon vegan Worcestershire
    1 teaspoon liquid smoke
    2 cups vegetable stock
    ½ cup vegan barbecue sauce

    6 vegan buns
    Vegan coleslaw

    1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF/180ºC.
    2. If using fresh jackfruit, line your work surface with plastic wrap.
    3. Oil a large knife and cut the jackfruit in half, then into quarters.
    4. Carefully remove the core of the jackfruit by cutting into it at an angle.
    5. Pull each fruit out and remove its seeds and outer coating.
    6. Rinse the fruit thoroughly.
    7. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large pan or Dutch oven.
    8. Add the onions and garlic, and cook until translucent.
    9. Add the jackfruit, spices, Worcestershire, and liquid smoke. Stir to coat evenly.
    10. Add the vegetable stock and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes, until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the fruit has broken down.
    11. Spread the jackfruit on a prepared baking sheet and bake at 350ºF/180ºC for 45 minutes, until the liquid has baked out and the jackfruit has a deeper brown color.
    12. Pour the vegan barbecue sauce over the jackfruit, mix and return to the oven for 15 minutes.
    13. Serve warm on vegan buns with vegan coleslaw.

  2. That recipe looks great. I wonder if canned jackfruit will work the same way as a fresh jackfruit? Most likely won’t be as fresh though.

  3. We love jackfruit in our house! The first recipe I ever made with it was a “pulled chicken” nachos dish, and our friend who was visiting thought it was actual meat (until my husband ratted me out). When buying the canned stuff, be sure to doublecheck; don’t get jackfruit in syrup by accident, you want in brine or water. Fresh jackfruit is ridiculously expensive here, so I’ll stick to the canned stuff, although I’ve also seen it frozen at one of the organic markets. I haven’t tried a pulled pork version, but after watching the video, I clearly have to!

    1. That’s wonderful that you want to try the pulled pork recipe! My mother-in-law actually made the recipe before I did so I just had to share this specific one. And I appreciate the little tip about checking the cans before buying the canned jackfruit. Very helpful!
