Easy Vegan BBQ Jackfruit Sandwiches

"If you're not already familiar with jackfruit, you're in for a treat. This incredibly versatile fruit is poised to make waves in the culinary world. With its remarkable ability to absorb flavors, it has become a go-to choice for vegans seeking a meat alternative. While you likely have all the other ingredients on hand for this recipe, you can easily find jackfruit at your local Asian market or online. Just remember, opt for young green jackfruit in water for the perfect texture, avoiding syrup. Serve this to your non-vegan friends, and watch as they're not only impressed but thoroughly satisfied!"
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Yield: 4-5 servings
Difficulty: Easy


  • 2, 20 oz. cans of young, green jackfruit in water (NOT in syrup)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp chili powder
  • ¾ Cup vegan BBQ sauce
  • Extra vegan BBQ sauce for topping
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Rinse and thoroughly dry your jackfruit. Place in a mixing bowl and set aside
  2. Combine brown sugar, sweet paprika, garlic powder, salt, pepper, chili powder with jackfruit in bowl and toss to fully season
  3. In a large Swiss Diamond Nonstick Fry Pan over medium heat, add 1 tbsp. olive oil and the seasoned jackfruit. Cook for approximately 3 - 5 minutes to get some color
  4. Add BBQ sauce and begin to thin with a little water to make a sauce. Continue to stir consistently and reduce heat to low-medium. Cover with lid and continue to cook for about 25 minutes
  5. Remove lid and stir occasionally, about every 5 minutes or so
  6. Using two silicone forks, shred the jackfruit as it begins to cook down and the texture has softened
  7. After 25 minutes, turn up heat to medium-high and cook for additional 3 - 5 minutes or until you begin to see more of a color/texture that resembles pulled pork. Remove from heat
  8. Serve with coleslaw and extra vegan BBQ sauce!
