Makes4 servings


  • 20 oz jackfruit in brine, rinsed and drained
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 white onion (160 g), chopped
  • 1 garlic clove

BBQ sauce

  • ½ cup tomato ketchup
  • 1 Tbsp tomato puree
  • 4 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • Water, as needed
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Rinse, drain, and dry the jackfruit. Chop off the center core portion of the fruit and discard. Place in mixing bowl and set aside.
  • Mix together the brown sugar, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder, salt and pepper, and add to the jackfruit. Toss to coat the jackfruit.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the seasoned jackfruit and fry for 5 more minutes.
  • To make the BBQ sauce, combine all the ingredients, and add the BBQ sauce to the jackfruit.
  • Stir and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about 30 minutes.
  • If the sauce becomes too thick, you can add some water to loosen it.
  • Once fully cooked, shred the softened jackfruit using two forks.


Canned jackfruit resembles pulled pork when slowly cooked, and it’s delicious and filling. It is available in many Asian food markets. For this recipe, only buy jackfruit soaked in brine (and not the sweetened version).
Serve this BBQ jackfruit on low protein buns and top with our delicious and simple Red Cabbage Slaw. Try some other toppings for your sliders, like lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles, and vegan cheese slices!
