Vegetarian Barbecued Pulled ‘Pork’
Is it pork? Is it chicken? Is it beef? How about none of the above? That’s right, it’s a vegetarian dish: barbecued pulled “pork.” I first saw this Australian recipe video a few days ago and was skeptical about it. But I tried it and lo and behold, it really tastes like barbecued pulled pork, except that it’s made of a fruit, Jackfruit!
It’s a recipe that vegetarians and meat eaters should try. Here’s to your health!
One can (9.8 fl. oz, drained), green jackfruit.
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
A pinch of salt
A pinch of pepper
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 up barbecue sauce
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
2 tbps Olive oil
In a medium bowl, mix jackfruit, sugar, paprika, garlic power, chili powder and salt and pepper. Heat Olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the jackfruit mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add barbecue sauce and liquid smoke. Turn over the jackfruit and continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and using a fork, shred the jackfruit. Remove from heat and serve with toasted or grilled Ciabatta bread slices.
