This is by far the best BBQ Jackfruit Pulled Pork I’ve made. So, so, so, SO good!
Whoever thought of marinating young jackfruit with delicious flavours is an absolute genius.
We cook this jackfruit in the oven first to make it dry. It takes time – an hour each side, but it’s totally worth it to make a great flavour. We’ve got another recipe for Jackfruit Pulled Pork where you marinate it first and then cook it, but I reckon this one trumps it!
We ate this one with tacos, but it would also pair perfectly with rice, or mixed through a salad, in a roll, on a burger, or even in a stir-fry! You could try it in place of the bean mixture in our Spicy Taco Bowls recipe!
