Pulled jackfruit is so similar to pulled pork, it’s a little scary! Have you tried it yet?
Honestly, I don’t even know if anyone would be able to tell the difference if I didn’t say anything. It’s the same size, same color, and same texture as pulled pork! I think that the only giveaway might be the flavor of the jackfruit; I like to describe it as tasting like a cross between pork and pineapple.
We also love jackfruit as a substitute for beef in classic mushroom stroganoff!
After all, jackfruit is a fruit. It makes sense that it has a fruit-like taste, even though it looks just like meat. Once it’s covered in tangy bbq sauce and piled high with coleslaw on a soft Hawaiian roll, It’s really hard to tell the difference.
