[AtoZ] Vegan Pulled Pork Sandwiches

I'm always looking to try new things. Jackfruit is one of my new-ish items. It's an interesting fruit. Can be savory and have the texture of pork when unripe and then when ripe it's sweet and apparently peach-ish in texture.

I've only had green jackfruit so far. I decided to make a pulled pork sandwich for my V post. And, yall, it was pretty dang good! Even with one little blip recipe-wise. 

Pretty simple ingredient-wise. I didn't have ginger so skipped that. Next time, though, I'll add it. Salt wasn't necessary either since the seasoning mix had salt as well.

This is what young jackfruit looks like. It's in a brine you have to rinse and squeeze out. It's firm but not hard when raw.

It shreds very easily. I just used my hands and smooshed it. It really has a pork similarity at this point I think.

So here was also my blip with the bbq seasoning. I had a hamburger seasoning that was new to me and had similar elements so went with that. But it was very very salty. It called for 2-3 tablespoons. I could have gotten by with 1-2 teaspoons I think.

Mix everything then spread on a parchment lined sheet pan and bake.

Seriously. Look at that bbq sandwich!

Yeah. This was good. A bit too salty but really this was the first time I was making this recipe so I don't expect perfection right off the bat and I didn't use quite enough jackfruit for the recipe. I will make it again for sure, though.

This would be an awesome thing to make for vegetarian/vegan friends if you're doing summer get togethers. It's very easy and tasty.
