Easy BBQ Jackfruit Saute Recipe
"This recipe is super easy and quick to make, but if this is your first attempt cooking jackfruit then make sure you buy young green jackfruit and not sweet ripe jackfruit for this dish. Jackfruit has been all the rage in the US so I had to give it a try and see what it was all about! The whole phenomena started because someone discovered that young jackfruit could be used as a meat-substitute in that it formed meat-like shreds and could soak up flavors from the sauces it’s cooked in. This makes it great for dishes like this one which is similar to BBQ pulled “pork.” There’s also a version of this recipe for the slow cooker if you prefer cooking that way"
Preparation Time5 min
Cooking Time15 min
- 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
- 1/4 onion, diced
- 1 can (14 oz) young jackfruit, drained and shredded
- 1-2 Tablespoon Paleo BBQ sauce (or more to taste)
- Salt to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
- 2 Tablespoons cilantro or parsley, diced (optional)
Place the avocado oil into a frying pan on medium heat.
Add in the diced onions and saute until they turn translucent.
Add the shredded jackfruit and the BBQ sauce to the frying pan. Saute for 5-10 minutes to get the sauce to soak into the jackfruit. Add in liquid smoke (optional) and salt to taste.
When the jackfruit is tender, add in the cilantro or parsley, saute for 1 more minute and serve immediately.
