Oil Free BBQ “Pulled Pork” Jackfruit Recipe


Learn how to make BBQ “pulled pork” from fresh jackfruit! By making your own “pulled pork”, you’ll spend less money and get more servings than buying a pre-packaged and pre-cooked one from the “Meat Alternatives” section in Whole Foods. You can also make it oil free and spice it to your taste! Most recipes call for canned jackfruit, but I actually could not find any so I used a fresh one. I thought it was going to be extremely difficult and complicated, but to my surprise, it wasn’t! I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as I did, it’s super easy and quick!!


  • cut slice of fresh jackfruit (buy from Whole Foods produce)
  • veggie broth
  • 1 bottle of honey-free BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 red onion
  • mushrooms (optional)
  • minced garlic
  • spices (I used salt, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, nutritional yeast, chili powder, and pepper)


Cut your fresh jackfruit into small pieces!
Make sure to remove seeds! Add veggie broth to jackfruit pieces.
After boiling jackfruit, saute in spices, veggies, and BBQ sauce.








  1. Cut your jackfruit into disk shapes. Then, cut off the rind and scoop out the big white seeds. Now cut the jackfruit into smallish ~2 inch pieces and place them into a large stove pot.
  2. Fill the pot with veggie broth, just until it’s covering the jackfruit.
  3. Boil the jackfruit on high heat until slightly soft (about 15 mins).
  4. Water fry onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Add strained jackfruit.
  5. Toss in spices and continue frying for 2 mins. Add BBQ sauce and fry for another 5 mins, pulling and shredding jackfruit if needed.
  6. Serve heat on a bun, with rice, on tacos, etc.!
