Korean BBQ Jackfruit Sliders

Korean BBQ Jackfruit Sliders

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you might know that my family has a pretty diverse range of diets. I’m gluten-free and so are the majority of my immediate family members – both my sons and a couple of my grandkids. One of my sons, Colin, is also vegan. We avoid giving my grandkids sugar. My nephew has a peanut allergy. It’s safe to say we’ve had to get creative in this family in order to ensure we all stay on track and don’t get sick. When we have family barbecues, one of the things we make is a vegan burger/sandwich alternative for Colin – sometimes it will be a black bean burger but other times we do something like these Korean BBQ Jackfruit Sliders.

These sliders use San-J’s Korean BBQ sauce to coat the jackfruit, created a pulled pork style sandwich, minus the meat!

Jackfruit is in the same family as fig, mulberry, and breadfruit. It’s grown between India and Malaysia and can be quite large. One of the largest jackfruits ever recorded was 94 pounds and had a circumference of 52 inches! Wow. Jackfruit is a great alternative to meat, as it has a similar texture and flavor to that of pork. If you haven’t tried it before, I highly recommend it!
