Trick your taste buds with one of my favorite vegan food hacks of all time. Jackfruit is a magical ingredient in that it has a similar texture to pulled pork and can take on whatever flavor you cook it in. After one taste, I bet you'll be amazed!


Smoky Sweet BBQ Sauce:



  1. Make the smoky sweet BBQ sauce: Combine the tomato sauce, mustard, brown sugar, cane sugar, vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, liquid smoke and smoked paprika in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, then simmer until thickened, about 30 minutes. Set aside. Season to taste.
  2. For the sliders: Heat the canola oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until it begins to brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the jackfruit and 1 1/2 cups of the Smoky Sweet BBQ sauce and bring to a boil. Stir well to combine, then cover and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add water if the sauce becomes too thick.
  3. After 20 minutes, remove the lid and shred the jackfruit with two forks. Increase the heat and cook until the jackfruit is well coated with BBQ sauce and heated throughout, another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat. Divide the jackfruit evenly among the slider buns and top with pickles.
