Instant Pot Pulled BBQ Jackfruit
Pulled BBQ Jackfruit made in the Instant Pot! Super quick and easy dinner that resembles pulled pork sandwiches. Use homemade barbecue sauce or store bought.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Servings 6 servings
- (2) 20 ounce cans young green jackfruit in brine (or water)
- 18 ounces barbecue sauce (See instructions for recipe link)
- 6 hamburger buns (gluten free if needed)
- shredded cabbage
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 (see photo above).
Make the barbecue sauce following these instructions
(unless you are using store bought sauce).
Add the barbecue sauce to the pulled jackfruit, and turn on the saute feature. Cook for 2-5 minutes until warmed through. Serve on buns with shredded cabbage.
