Method

  1. Begin by draining the jackfruit. Cut the core from each piece as they are a little tough.

  2. In a large saucepan, heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic cooking for 4 or 5 minutes until softened. Add the cumin, coriander and paprika cooking for 2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Add the chipotle, salt, tomatoes and barbeque sauce, and slowly bring to a simmer.

  4. Add the jackfruit and cook for 30 minutes stirring every five until the liquid has reduced and the jackfruit shreds easily. Remove from the heat.

  5. Shred with two forks, and season to taste. Cool for 15 minutes.

  6. Serve with warm slider buns, coleslaw and shredded jackfruit. Enjoy!
