How to make jackfruit in the Instant Pot

Find the complete recipe with measurements below.

First, drain and rinse the canned jackfruit.

Chop off the center core portion and discard. (You don’t have to do this, but I don’t like the texture of the harder parts, so I cut most of it off.) Place it in the Instant Pot with a cup of water and cook on high for 5 minutes. Then mash it with a potato masher until it looks like this.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Prepare your jackfruit: Drain and rinse the canned jackfruit, then chop off the core portions and discard.
  • Add the jackfruit to the Instant Pot along with 1 cup of water. Put on the lid, seal, and set to high pressure for 5 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally, or if you are in a hurry you can manually release the pressure (carefully.)
  • Drain the jackfruit, and then add it back to the Instant Pot. Mash with a potato masher until it resembles pulled meat.
  • If using homemade, make the vegan barbecue sauce now.
  • Add the barbecue sauce to the pulled jackfruit, and turn on the sauté feature. Cook for 2-5 minutes until warmed through. Serve on buns with shredded cabbage or coleslaw.
