Can you tell the difference between jackfruit and pulled pork?
Jackfruit is a tropical fruit used often in Asian cuisines. It can be used in savory or sweet dishes. In this recipe, it looks remarkably like "pulled" pork or chicken. The texture of jackfruit is starchy and fibrous. It's a great source of fiber.
In the United States, you'll find it in specialty stores in the canned or frozen foods sections.
In a large saucepan, heat oil, over medium-high heat. Add the shallot and garlic, sauté until soft.
Reduce heat to low and add the ketchup, Dijon, tomato paste, vinegar, paprika, (liquid smoke), Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, brown sugar. Stir for about 3 minutes until well combined. Add the jackfruit and heat through for at least 5 minutes.
Serve warm over rice or on a bun or as a side.
