Pulled Jackfruit Tacos
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Skip the work of preparing it fresh and reach for canned jackfruit in brine — it will save you time and mess.
Yield: Serves 4
- Trim firmer, pointed end from each piece of jackfruit. Push out and discard any seeds. Set aside.
- In Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and sauté for 5 minutes, or until soft and lightly golden. Add garlic, chili powder, cumin and oregano, and sauté for 1 minute. Add passata, water, vinegar, chipotle chili, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil.
- Add jackfruit and stir to submerge. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes, or until jackfruit is slightly broken down and flavorful, and liquid has taken on sauce consistency. Season with salt, to taste.
- Turn broiler on high. Line baking sheet with foil and lightly brush with oil. Spread jackfruit filling on foil and broil for 3 minutes, or until caramelized. Serve in corn tortillas with desired toppings
