Bringing The Family Back to The Table

Pulled Jackfruit BBQ Sandwich

Pulled Jackfruit BBQ Sandwich

The 4th of July is right around the corner and I am preparing for this celebration by getting my BBQ on!

I mean, what is the 4th of July without BBQ, right? I have strived so hard for a nice pulled-something sandwich since I went vegan. It just eluded me as to what I could really use, until I found out about jackfruit.

So, I am stoked to share this gem with you!

Pulled Jackfruit BBQ Sandwich Recipe - Texas Family Kitchen

This recipe started out as a simple, “I want a pulled pork type burger with BBQ sauce, that is it,” and ended up as a smokey sloppy joe. It was really my fault for putting in the onion and the red bell pepper, but it gives SO much substance to the meal that I can forgive myself about it.

I used my Boot Scootin’ Good BBQ Sauce, and Oh My! was this meal delicious!

This sandwich is so savory and delicious, my family wanted seconds and thirds. I has to tell them to get their grubby hands off of the bowl since we had it on the menu for the next day, but I was glad to know they enjoyed my endeavor into pulled jackfruit.
