Cuisine American, Americana, Vegan, Vegetarian


  • 36 oz jackfruit
  • ½ cup tomato sauce marinara passata
  • ½ cup Dijon mustard
  • 4 oz liquid smoke
  • 2 oz worcestershire sauce low sodium
  • 3 tbsp evoo or avocado oil
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • cup red onion diced
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • ¾ cup water
  • 2 tbsp arrowroot starch
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 6 whole wheat buns


  • Place all the ingredients in the slow cooker except for the arrowroot starch. Cook on high for 4 to 6 hours or low for 6 to 8 hours.
  • When there is just about an hour left of cooking, spoon out the jackfruit, leaving only the broth. Mix together the arrowroot starch with water OR with 2 tablespoons of the broth. Immediately pour it into the slow cooker and stir. Add the jackfruit back to the slow cooker to finish cooking.
  • Once the cooking cycle has finished, using two forks (or even a potato masher), gently mash and pull apart the jackfruit so it resembles pulled pork.
  • Mix everything together in the slow cooker and serve and enjoy immediately.
  • Note: I added mine to a sandwich with avocado, purple cabbage and spicy jalapeño sauce on a challah bun. You can definitely choose another type of bread when enjoying this such as low-carb buns, whole grain bread or even ciabatta rolls.
