 Course: Main Dish

 Cuisine: American, BBQ, Gluten Free, vegan, Vegetarian

 Prep Time: 5 minutes

 Cook Time: 25 minutes

 Servings: 4-5 servings












  • 2 20 oz cans young green jackfruit not in brine or syrup!

  • 2 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1  tsp paprika

  • 1  tsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 1/2  tsp chili powder

  • 1  cup bbq sauce


  1. Rinse, drain, and thoroughly dry jackfruit. Chop off the center "core" portion of the fruit and discard. Place in a mixing bowl and set aside.

  2. Mix together BBQ seasoning and add to jackfruit. Toss to coat.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add 1-2 Tbsp oil of choice and seasoned jackfruit. Toss to coat and cook for 2-3 minutes to achieve some color.

  4. Add BBQ sauce and thin with enough water to make a sauce. 

  5. Stir and reduce heat to low- medium and cook for about 20 minutes (up to 35 minutes on low for a deeper flavor).

  6. Remove lid and stir occasionally. TIP: For finer texture, use two forks to shred the jackfruit as it cooks down.

  7. Once the jackfruit has been properly simmered, turn up heat to medium-high and cook for 2-3 more minutes to get a little extra color/texture then remove from heat.

  8. Serve on whole grain buns with extra BBQ sauce! Leftover jackfruit keeps for up to a couple days in the fridge, though best when fresh.
