  • Yield: 4 sandwiches 1x


  • 1 can green jackfruit in brine, drained and rinsed
  • 1/21 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp tamari
  • salt, to taste
  • 4 sandwich buns
  • Preferred toppings



  1. Using your hands or a fork, pull apart the jackfruit pieces into shreds. Discard any pieces that are too tough to shred.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix 1/2 cup BBQ sauce evenly into the jackfruit shreds. If you prefer more sauce, add up to a 1/2 cup extra. Otherwise, reserve the rest for extra sandwich topping. 
  3. In a medium sized pan, add oil and onions and stir to coat. Heat on low for about 10 minutes, until onions start to brown.
  4. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. 
  5. Add BBQ jackfruit to the pan, increase heat to medium, and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  6. Remove from heat and assemble sandwiches with your preferred toppings.
