Vegan BBQ Pulled “Pork”

Vegan BBQ Pulled “Pork”


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients for 6 servings of pulled jackfruit:

  • 4 cans (14oz) jackfruit, drained
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard (or spicy mustard)
  • 4oz liquid smoke ( I used hickory flavor)
  • 2oz Worcestershire
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar, packed
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoon arrowroot starch mixed with 2 tablespoons water


Step 1

Place all the ingredients in the slow cooker except for the arrowroot starch. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours.

Step 2

When there is just about an hour left of cooking, spoon out the jackfruit, leaving only the broth. Mix together the arrowroot starch with water OR with 2 tablespoons of the broth. Immediately pour it into the slow cooker and stir. Add the jackfruit back to the slow cooker to finish cooking.

Step 3

Once the cooking cycle has finished, using two forks (or even a potato masher), gently mash and pull apart the jackfruit so it resembles pulled pork. Mix everything together in the slow cooker and serve and enjoy immediately.

Note: I made a sandwich with avocado, purple cabbage and spicy jalapeño sauce on a challah bun. You can definitely choose another type of bread when enjoying this such as low-carb buns, whole grain bread or even ciabatta rolls.
