Pulled Jackfruit 'Pork' Sandwich

0:35 m

Nothing beats a great sandwich. Lunch, dinner, elevenses...they're good any time of day. Especially "meaty" ones. We've made lots of BBQ jackfruit in the past, but this recipe is the simplest, easiest yet. All you need is some BBQ sauce and some BBQ seasoning and you're good to go. The slaw adds a certain something and is also dead easy to make. This is an utterly delicious vegan sandwich idea- Ian's favourite snack whilst watching the rugby. Also a great veggie lunch recipe as an afternoon treat!

Before you start

Preheat oven to 200℃ | 2 x baking trays lined with parchment | Mixing bowl | Wooden spoon

Prepare the jackfruit

  • Open, drain, rinse and pat dry the jackfruit. Put the olive oil and spice rub in a mixing bowl and stir to combine
  • Loosely pull the jackfruit pieces apart with two forks so the fibres of the fruit separate

Coat the jackfruit and cook

  • Put the jackfruit in the mixing bowl and stir to combine and coat
  • Spread the jackfruit out on the baking sheets then put the sheets in the oven and roast for 30 minutes

Add the BBQ sauce

  • Take the tray out of the oven, carefully mix the BBQ sauce into the roast jackfruit pieces (you can do this on the tray with a wooden spoon), put the tray back in the oven and roast for a further 5 minutes

Prepare the rest of the ingredients

  • While the jackfruit is roasting, make the slaw
  • Shred the cabbage
  • Trim, peel and ribbon the carrot
  • Trim and ribbon the spring onions
  • Put the mayo, BBQ sauce, lime juice and a few drops of Tabasco in a bowl and mix to combine
  • Add the cabbage, carrot, spring onions to the bowl and toss to combine and coat (this recipe makes double the slaw you need but it's darn good and will keep for 2 days in the fridge)

Time to build your sandwiches

  • To make one sandwich, add a good portion of the jackfruit to a sandwich roll. Add a dollop of slaw and some lettuce and tuck in
