Delicious Jackfruit pulled pork piled high on a soft bun with tangy red cabbage coleslaw. This sandwich is pure heaven. It is delightfully messy, but since it is mostly all fruit and veg- you don’t have to feel much guilt when you indulge. Marinate the Jackfruit for two hours beforehand.

Step 1
In a large freezer bag, add Coconut Oil (1 Tbsp) , Paprika (1/2 Tbsp) , Chili Powder (1/2 Tbsp) , and Maple Syrup (1 Tbsp) and mix well.
Step 2
Add Young Green Jackfruit in Water (6 1/3 cups) to the marinade and allow to marinate for a minimum of 2 hours either on the counter or, if marinating overnight, place in the fridge.
Step 3
When the jackfruit has marinated and is ready to go, place a pan on medium heat, and heat some oil.
Step 4
When your oil is hot, add Onion (1) and Garlic (2 cloves) to the pan. Cook and mix until onions are clear.
Step 5
Add Water (1/2 cup) and jackfruit, mix well, and bring to a simmer for about 20 mins, covering halfway through to avoid drying out the meat.
Step 6
After 20 mins, break up the jackfruit using a a masher or a fork, and reduce heat even more.
Step 7
Cover and continue to cook on low for another 15-20 minutes, stirring often to break up large pieces of jackfruit.
Step 8
Cook until all liquid has evaporated and remove from heat.
Step 9
Add Vegan Barbecue Sauce (3/4 cup) to pan and coat jackfruit, add more if you like your pulled pork really messy and gooey.
Step 10
Whisk together Apple Cider Vinegar (1 Tbsp) , Vegan Mayo (1/2 cup) , Maple Syrup (1/2 Tbsp) , Fresh Dill (1 tsp) , Salt (1/4 tsp) , and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (1/4 tsp) into a large bowl to create the dressing for the cole slaw.
Step 11
Add the Red Cabbage (1/2) , Carrot (1) , and White Onion (1/2) . Mix well.
Step 12
Taste, and adjust seasonings to your liking before assembling the burger with the Brioche Hamburger Buns (4) , coleslaw, and jackfruit. The longer you let this recipe sit, the better it tastes!
