(Vegetarian / Vegan)
Timings: total 45 mins | prep. 15 mins

Jackfruit is a fantastic meat substitute and is now readily available tinned in major supermarkets.  Once cooked, it can be pulled apart like slow-cooked pork or beef.  The great benefit of jackfruit is that it soaks up the BBQ sauce, giving it that sweet BBQ flavour.

Ingredients: BBQ sauce (makes approx. 500ml)

Method:BBQ Sauce

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • (Optional) 1 tbsp hot sauce/Sriracha
  • 150ml tomato ketchup
  • 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 400g tinned plum tomatoes


  • 2 x young jackfruit / green jackfruit
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 12 small burger/slider buns


  • ½ red cabbage, shredded
  • ½ white cabbage, shredded
  • 3-4 x carrots, grated


  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Coriander/cilantro, small handful, chopped
  1. In a pan over medium heat, fry the onion in oil for a few minutes until translucent. Add the garlic, cumin, paprika and fry for a minute more until you smell the aroma. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan, breaking up the plum tomatoes with a fork, and stir the sauce. Reduce the heat to low and simmer (covered) for 10 minutes.
  2. Allow to cool and blend in a food processor until sauce is smooth.

Method: Slaw

  1. Combine all slaw ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Mix all vinaigrette ingredients and toss in together with the slaw.

Method: Jackfruit

  1. Drain and rinse the jackfruit.
  2. Over a high heat, for the jackfruit in oil for 5-10 minutes, or until charred on each side.
  3. Using a fork (or potato masher), press down on the jackfruit until it naturally pulls apart. Shred the large pieces with a fork until it resembles pulled pork.
  4. Stir in half the BBQ sauce and cook for a further 5 minutes. All the shredded jackfruit should now be covered and ready to serve.
  5. Halve the burger/slider buns and spread on your desired sauce(s). Pile on the BBQ jackfruit, top with the remaining sauce and the slaw.
