What is vegan pork made of?
We use jackfruit as the pork substitute for this vegan pulled pork sandwich recipe. Jackfruit is incredibly fibrous and perfect for recreating the features of Pulled Pork.
If you do not like jackfruit, or you do not find it, you can also use a mix of oyster mushrooms and pickled artichokes. To do this, simply use a fork and pull it apart.
Can you use ripe jackfruit for vegan pulled pork?
Ripe jackfruit are sweet and do not go very well with hearty dishes. Here I recommend using green jackfruit or jackfruit in brine.
How to Make Vegan BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich?
Pulled pork jackfruit
First fry the diced onions and chopped garlic cloves in a non-stick pan with a little oil. In the meantime, drain the jackfruit and wash it well. Now remove the harder core. Separate the jackfruit with a fork and stir the jackfruit in a bowl with the onion and the rest of the ingredients. Now put the Pulled Pork mass on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake it for about 20 min at 400°F (200°C). Stir after 10 min times. Depending on the oven, it may take a little more or less than 20 minutes. The jackfruit looks more and more like pulled pork.
French Fried Onions
Slice the onion and fry the onion in a pan until the onions are slightly brown. Season with some Sea Salt. Now add the flour and stir well.
Heat the oven to 175°F (80°C) and place the onions on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and let it bake for about 90-120 minutes. The onions will be crispy and lose liquid. Depending on how thick the onions are cut, it may take a little longer. Just make this in a larger amount and always keep some in a sealed jar like a Mason Jar. Then you always have some at hand.
Cut the cabbage into thin strips and grate the carrots. Now prepare the dressing. Add the cashews, water and spices in a hihg-speed mixer and mix until a creamy consistency. Massage the dressing into cabbage for about 3 minutes. The cabbage should now be softer. Season with sea salt and pepper.
Can you freeze vegan pulled pork sandwich?
You can freeze vegan pulled pork very well. Simply freeze the BBQ Jackfruit in portions. To warm up, just take the jackfruit out of the freezer the night before and warm it up in the oven the next day.
