Jackfruit “Pulled Pork” Recipe

I couldn’t look at another picture of Jackfruit Pulled Pork. I had to try it! I was not disappointed. I’m beginning to wonder if jackfruit isn’t the world’s most amazing vegan food. All I know is that this Pulled Pork Jackfruit recipe is pretty incredible.

Have you seen all of these recipes for Faux pulled pork using jackfruit? They look amazing. It looks like the incredible pulled pork  texture and everything is there.

Hey, I don’t need to eat vegan meats. I don’t need to eat vegan BBQ. I am perfectly happy eating a mostly whole food diet based on fruits and vegetables. But I like to try other things as much as the next person. You can only see pictures of this Vegan pulled pork barbeque so many times before you say “I have to try that!”.

I had to order my jackfruit since none of the stores in my town stocked it. So it was a bit pricey but not too bad. I got 3 cans of it for $8 bucks through Amazon (I’ve put the link on the next page with the video in case you need it).

I took pictures and made video the whole time I was cooking this vegan BBQ recipe just so I could share it with you guys. My only fault was I didn’t have any proper buns for it so I had to use some sandwich bread. I don’t really eat a lot of things that require buns so I rarely have them.

You can get my personalized recipe and watch the video of me making it on the next page. You may be surprised at how easy it was to make this vegan pulled pork BBQ recipe and how yummy it looks!

    1. I agree with both of you, Gale and Candace. Gale, I also believe that vegans, new and old, should strive to see the opportunities of eating non-meat food and expand their repertoire into foods that don’t necessarily mimic meat so we don’t keep thinking about it. But, does that mean we shouldn’t enjoy a veggie patty in a bun because it resembles a hamburger? We can still change up our foods to replicate the “old” meat versions that we used to enjoy, but maybe just eliminating the meat or replacing it with vegetables that don’t necessarily look like meat, but maintain their own shape. (Not sure about this jackfruit version – trading a protein thing for a fruit as an entree. Should I worry that there may not be any protein here? Eating fake meat – the soy junk – is an unhealthy way of pretending to eat meat, esp. if it’s overly processed by chemicals, not organic, and GMO’d. Disgusting and dangerous. It’s better to use whole versions of protein and vegetables as they are. Candace, I agree with you, too. Labeling people “fake” and “real” is dangerous, though, and starts to divide people. I love vegans but I do not like the superiority complex and militaristic attitude that some have. It’s just as bad as political extremism that leads to prejudice and hate. Don’t go there. Be better than that. Be inclusive and welcoming so that all will want to join the way of living that will save the planet.

    Gale… There’s no such thing as “real vegans” vs “fake vegans”. All vegans have their reasoning for being so, be it health, ethics, or environment. It doesn’t matter why you become vegan, as long as you’re doing it and making an effort. Be that, I LOVE meat, I love the taste and smell and the whole shebang. I will not lie. But I love myself and the safety of animals more. For people turning TO veganism more recently in their lives, like myself, there are days where it’s entirely difficult to resist meat when you love it so much. What helps keeps me on track is recipes like this. I’m sorry it grosses you out, but isn’t it more important to have faux meats that keep people on track than someone running to a restaurant and buying a pork sandwich? I literally have one of the best BBQ joints in town within walking (and smelling) distance from me and if this keeps me from walking in there and ordering one of their take outs, I find it gold.

  2. If you don’t like it Kurt , then you don’t have to deal with it. Enjoy your food , its your choice , no one is bothering you. Study on cults? You are looking in the wrong place for that , if your knowledge about cults is as equal to knowledge of your choice of diet…nothing else really needs to be said.

  3. Thanks for the comments Mark! It’s rrfreshing to hear from a man in what seems to be a female dominated cult. Being that my study has just recently started on the vegan cult, I’m not sure exactly what the males role is as of yet. Word to the wise though. From what my studies have turned up so far, I’d keep my boys in check( if you still have them) as I believe they will be disposed of shortly. Again, thank you. Any and all info from male cult members is appreciated!

  4. Come on Mark. Don’t be like that. Teach me the ways of the vegan. You got my interest. Just like a South American tribe that’s never come in contact with white folks! Except in that case the tribe(being vegans) eats monkeys! Grow a pair and talk to me buddy! I like you, you got spunk!

  5. Pulled pork WAS a favourite. Actually the last meat I have ever eaten. About a year into being veggie, while on a loooong road trip I was waiting for a ferry. I grabbed some lunch, leaning heavy into my sandwich when a truck rolls by with “Organic Vegetables” printed on the side. And there’s me a vegetarian with a mouthful of pulled pork sandwich. Anyone else ever eat meat ala’ brain fart?

  6. I’m going to try to get brave enough to try to make this. I have seen fresh jack fruit at my grocer but I have never looked for canned. I would have more courage using canned for my first one so I’ll have to see if I can find some in the Asian Isle.
