Pulled pork

1 Tin tin of Young, unripe Jack Fruit
1 Onion, halved and sliced
2 Garlic Cloves, crushed
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Sweet Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce
4 tbsp Maple Syrup
300 ml Vegetable Stock
2 tsp Liquid Smoke (optional)
4 tbsp Tomato Ketchup (optional)

Vegan Pulled “Pork” Directions

Drain the jack fruit from the tin. Chop into thin slices, seeds, roots and everything.

Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the onion and garlic. Stir for 3-4 minutes until softened. Add the jack fruit and heat for a further 2-3 minutes.

Add all the other ingredients and stir until well combined. It may seem like there is a lot of liquid but the jack fruit is quite thirsty. Place the lid on the saucepan and heat over a low heat for 20-25 minutes, stirring from time to time and adding a bit more water or stock if need be.

Serve in rolls, in wraps, jacket potatoes, on pizzas or in a salad – of however you wish to serve.

Store in a container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
