  1. Drain and rinse jackfruit.
  2. In a skillet over medium heat, heat a little water or oil. Add onion and cook for 5-7 minutes, until tender. Add garlic; cook for another minute.
  3. Add the jackfruit, BBQ sauce, and 1/2 cup water. Stir and cover; turn heat down to medium-low. Cook for 15 minutes, then stir again, adding more water if needed. Cover and cook for another 15 minutes.
  4. Using a potato masher or a fork, shred the jackfruit until it resembles pulled pork. Add smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, liquid smoke, salt and pepper; stir to combine. Add more BBQ sauce if desired.
  5. Dress hamburger buns however you want with optional toppings and BBQ jackfruit.


*Most recipe will call for the core to be cut off and discarded, but I think that’s a waste. It won’t shred like the other pieces, but it still cooks and tastes just as “meaty.” I say, go for it!
**I used my homemade BBQ sauce recipe, but you could also use your favorite store bought sauce
