Bbq Jackfruit Burger


  • 3 20 oz cans of Young Green Jackfruit (in water or brine, not syrup)
  • 1 cup vegetable stock
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce (avoid overly sweet variations)
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Drain the cans of jackfruit, rinse and pat dry

  2. Cut the triangle pieces into smaller triangles keeping a bit of the core on each piece

  3. Measure out all of your dry ingredients for the spice rub and place in a small bowl

  4. Heat coconut oil on medium heat in a heavy pot that has a lid

  5. Once hot, add the jackfruit and the spices in the bowl

  6. Stir to evenly coat

  7. Add the vegetable stock, stir and cover on medium heat for 15 minutes

  8. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a sheet pan with parchment paper

  9. After 15 minutes, remove the lid and break apart the jackfruit pieces a bit further using a wooden spatula

  10. We want a bite to the end result so don’t break into too small of pieces, but just enough to achieve the “pulled-pork” effect

  11. During this time all of the excess liquid should have soaked in or evaporated

  12. Evenly distribute the jackfruit onto the lined sheet pan

  13. Place in the oven for 15 minutes

  14. After 15 minutes, remove pan, add 1/2 cup of the BBQ sauce, stir around to coat and return to oven for another 15 minutes

  15. Remove; add remaining sauce, stir and serve
