- Firstly, prepare the jackfruit; drain the tins and pat the fruit dry with paper towels, then cut off the core of each jackfruit segment.
- Then, split the jackfruit with two forks, or your hands, until the jackfruit resembles pulled pork.
- Now, rub the jackfruit with the pepper, sugar, oregano, and soy sauce and set aside in a bowl.
- After this, chop the garlic and onions finely.
- Next, cook the onions until soft and then add the garlic and the jack fruit mixture over a medium heat for about 5 – 10 minutes
- Now, add the BBQ sauce and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
- Serve on a bun, a wrap, or with rice and enjoy!
- Chop some spring onions and sprinkle through for some extra excitement.
- You could totally use vegan hoisin sauce rather than BBQ for a more eastern feel to this recipe.
