Have you ever wondered what you could do with Jackfruit? Then wonder no more!

This incredible BBQ pulled jackfruit recipe will leave you wanting more. Easy to make and full of flavour, this will soon become one of your favourites. Eat it in a bun, on a jacket potato, or simply on top of a salad - the opportunities are endless...

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Yields: (at least) 4 Burgers Worth


  • 2 cans (each 280g drained) of Jackfruit (you can buy this from us, whipee!)
  • Burger buns (if you're having it in a burger, that is)
  • 2 medium onions – chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic – chopped
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 60ml apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp. reduced salt soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. oregano
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp. English mustard (reduce for less of a kick)
  • 2 tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Drain the jackfruit and cut off the core from each piece (this is the harder section in the middle of it – it’s too tough to be pulled)
  2. Fry the onions and the garlic until golden brown
  3. Add the chopped tomatoes, garlic, onions and oregano to a blender and blend into a paste (doesn’t have to be completely smooth)
  4. In a large pan add the jackfruit, the tomato ‘paste’ and the rest of the ingredients and stir
  5. Leave on a low heat (I had mine on 1 out of 6) for an hour and a half with a lid on, stir every 20 minutes or so
  6. When cooked use two forks to pull the jackfruit (some will pull apart itself) apart
  7. Then place into a bun or onto a jacket and ENJOY!
