Jackfruits may look strange but don't be deceived, they are filled with health benefits and make a great alternative to meat, especially when it comes to a “vegetarian” version of a pulled pork sandwich.
A vegetarian version of one of our favourite sandwiches.
Preheat your oven to 400F. Lightly grease a baking pan.
Drain and rinse the jackfruit. Cut the jackfruit into smaller pieces– removing the tough inner core.
Add the olive oil to a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add the onions and garlic. Sauté until the onions are tender, about 5 minutes. Add in the chopped jackfruit and vegetable broth. Cover and continue to cook another 8 to 10 minutes, until the jackfruit is soft enough that it can be mashed.
With 2 forks, pull the jackfruit, until it breaks apart and looks pulled or shredded. Transfer the jackfruit to a shallow baking pan & spread it in an even layer. Bake it in the pre heated oven for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and pour over 1/2 cup BBQ sauce, stir to combine. Pop it back in the oven for another 10 minutes, until the BBQ sauce starts to reduce & caramelize. Remove from the oven, stir in the remaining 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce & serve.
