Jackfruit Carnitas - BBQ Jackfruit


  • 2 20oz cans of young green jackfruit (packed in water or brine)
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups of BBQ sauce
  • Corn tortillas
  • 1/4 cup of diced tomatoes and/or coleslaw
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp canola/olive oil
  • Salt to taste

1. Wash, drain and shred the green jackfruit with a fork.
2. Heat oil in a pan. Crush and add the garlic, cooking for a minute or so. Add the shredded jackfruit and cook until the water evaporates and the mixture browns.
