Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Course Main Dish
Cuisine American, BBQ, Gluten Free, vegan, vegetarian

Ingredients
  

  • 2 20 oz cans young green jackfruit not in brine or syrup!
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 cup bbq sauce

Instructions
 

  • Rinse, drain, and thoroughly dry jackfruit. Chop off the center "core" portion of the fruit and discard. Place in a mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Mix together BBQ seasoning and add to jackfruit. Toss to coat.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1-2 Tbsp oil of choice and seasoned jackfruit. Toss to coat and cook for 2-3 minutes to achieve some color.
  • Add BBQ sauce and thin with enough water to make a sauce.
  • Stir and reduce heat to low- medium and cook for about 20 minutes (up to 35 minutes on low for a deeper flavor).
  • Remove lid and stir occasionally. TIP: For finer texture, use two forks to shred the jackfruit as it cooks down.
  • Once the jackfruit has been properly simmered, turn up heat to medium-high and cook for 2-3 more minutes to get a little extra color/texture then remove from heat.
  • Serve on whole grain buns with extra BBQ sauce! Leftover jackfruit keeps for up to a couple days in the fridge, though best when fresh.
