JACKFRUIT PULLED PORK

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 medium onion, sliced

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 cups jackfruit(450 g), fresh or canned

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire

  • 2 cups vegetable stock(480 mL)

  • ½ cup vegan bbq sauce(120 g)

METHOD

  1. Preheat your oven to 180ºC.

  2. Heat oil over a medium heat in a large pan and add the onions and garlic, cooking until translucent. Add the jackfruit, spices and Worcestershire. Stir to coat evenly.

  3. Add the vegetable stock and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes, until the liquid is mostly absorbed and the fruit has broken down.

  4. Spread the jackfruit on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 75 minutes, until the liquid has baked out and the jackfruit has a deeper brown color. Remove from oven and pour over with the Worcester so it has an even coating before returning to the oven for a final 15mins. Serve warm
