Pulled Pork Jackfruit Sandwich

Updated: Jan 24, 2023

I tell you, my daughter keeps me on my toes when it comes to her newfound love for a pescatarian life choice. Here is my version of pulled pork using jackfruit. It is amazing how much the texture of jackfruit mimics shredded meat. The bourbon barbeque sauce takes the flavor to the next level.

Everyone loves a good pulled pork sandwich, loaded with tangy BBQ sauce topped with coleslaw. Tender juicy meat full of smoky flavor. Jackfruit is a great alternative for those of us that has chosen a different life choice for meat. Jackfruit is a tropical tree fruit grown in Asia, Africa, and South America. Jackfruit is typically used in vegan dishes as an alternative for chicken or pulled pork. It has a subtle sweet taste that seems to adapt well to flavor and is a great substitute as a meat in tacos, curries and salads too just to name a few.
