Gluten-Free Ponzu Honey Pulled Jackfruit Sliders

The combination of sweet honey and tangy ponzu sauce balance come together in this delicious Gluten-Free Ponzu Honey Pulled Jackfruit Sliders recipe that’s not just gluten-free but vegetarian, too!

This recipe is simple. Start with a sauté of red onion and garlic, toss in some frozen jackfruit (super convenient to keep this on hand for simple meals), and then comes the sauce! The sauce is a delicious blend of Marukan Gluten-Free Ponzu sauce (I used the Sudachi Citrus one) and honey with ground ginger and red pepper flakes. While that cooks, you whip up some coleslaw and toast some gluten-free buns.

This dish is easy and simple for a weeknight dinner or weekend lunch. It’s extra-special when you top it with pickled shallots (see the note at the end of the recipe).
