  • 28 oz. jackfruit drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoon flour of choice
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes fire roasted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup water or more

for serving:

  • hamburger buns
  • broccoli slaw or cabbage


  • Once you've drained and rinsed the jackfruit, pour it onto a cutting board. Use your hands to pull the jackfruit apart so that it resembles traditional pulled pork, then place it directly into a large skillet.
  • Heat the skillet over medium heat, then sprinkle the flour over the jackfruit and stir (this will help to absorb some of the moisture.
  • Next, add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Once mixture starts bubbling, reduce heat to a simmer and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Serve pulled jackfruit on a bun with slaw or cabbage, and enjoy!
