Pigs are friends, not food. Eat this BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich. Eat this BBQ Pulled Jackfruit Sandwich. Just a few weeks ago my husband had the jackfruit reuben at FüD. But, truthfully, it took a reader email to encourage me to try jackfruit myself. She asked if I had ever cooked with jackfruit (no) and would I mind trying it in the pressure cooker and let her know how it works? Martie, this is for you! Jackfruit is, well, a fruit. It’s flesh is very meaty and, when cooked, it shreds, so it’s become a darling among vegans who remember pulled pork sandwiches but now know that pigs are friends, not food. Vegan versions of “pulled pork” sandwiches with jackfruit abound on the interwebs. I bought canned jackfruit, packed in water (NOT syrup), from an Asian market. The jackfruit is pre-cut and not in a brine so I did nothing but rinse and drain the jackfruit before adding it to the pressure cooker. I started to mix and match ingredients from a couple of my barbecue sauce recipes. Since the idea behind this recipe is to emulate “pulled pork” I used whole mustard seeds, instead of ground mustard, because it is commonly used to season cooked meat. The combination of the whole mustard seeds and cayenne pepper make this a very spicy dish. Saute onion and garlic for just a few minutes. Add jackfruit and all remaining ingredients, stir, and lock the pressure cooker lid in place. Cook at pressure for 10 minutes. Allow for a natural release. Remove the pressure cooker lid, away from you. Stir the jackfruit and sauce well and begin to use your spoon, or a fork, to pull pieces into shreds. This should be very easy to do with your spoon. Add oil to the slow cooker, the add the jackfruit.
