Vegan Pulled Pork-less Sandwich with Jackfruit

Today is August 1st! Not just any normal August 1st, it’s my 2 year anniversary being PesceVegan! My level of excitement is at an ultimate high, so I decided to make a pulled pork-less sandwich in honor of this monumental day. The sandwich is created with Jackfruit, which is a large green fruit that is believed to be indigenous to India. This fruit is what I call a “power fruit”. Jackfruit is known to improve bone health, promote hair growth, maintain blood pressure, regulate digestion, improve eyesight, protect against aging, alleviate anemia, and serve as a remedy for asthma. There are so many benefits of this fruit and you can utilize them with this recipe.


  • 4 cans of Jackfruit in Water (Whole Foods or any oriental market)
  • 1.5 18 oz. Bottles of Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 tsp. Of Garlic Powder
  • 2 tsp. Of a Cajun or Mesquite Seasoning
  • 3 tbsp. Of Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Of Water

Step 1: Drain the water from the cans of jackfruit


Step 2: Add the olive oil to a large skillet and then hold each piece of Jackfruit, press down in the middle, and pull away to separate the stringy pieces of the fruit and add them into a pan. Allow that to cook on medium heat for 5-7 minutes.


Step 3: Pour 1.5 bottles of barbecue sauce into a bowl and add 2 tsp. garlic powder and 2 tsp. of the cajun or mesquite seasoning and stir.


Step 4: Add the sauce and the water into the skillet and stir. Allow that to simmer on low heat for 45-50 minutes while periodically stirring. 

Step 5: Serve and enjoy!
