Vegan Pulled Pork (using young jackfruit)

From Cha’s Organics recipes

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 can young jackfruit
  • 1 cube low sodium vegetable or mushroom stock
  • ½ to ¾ cup organic barbecue sauce (get your favorite)
  • ¼ cup hot water

DIRECTIONS:                    

  1. Rinse and drain the young jackfruit.
  2. Heat up a skillet and sauté the jackfruit pieces in oil for about 3-4 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  3. Lower the heat. Dissolve stock cube in hot water, add to the jackfruit, cover and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  4. Pour bbq sauce over jackfruit mixture and simmer 15 minutes more, stirring occasionally. You may need to add a little water at this point to get the proper consistency.
  5. Gently crush the jackfruit pieces with a potato masher and simmer without covering 5 more minutes or until excess water evaporates. Enjoy!

Note: for a “meatier” texture, put the mixture on a cookie sheet and bake in medium-heat oven for about 10 minutes, right after crushing the jackfruit in step 4. Serve in tacos or on burger bread with your favorite fillings: coleslaw, avocado, lettuce, etc.
