Instant Pot Pulled BBQ Jackfruit in the instant pot



  • 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.
