Description

This Korean Barbecue Jackfruit Tacos Recipe is like eating vegan pulled pork! The jackfruit is coated in a sweet and salty Korean barbecue sauce for maximum flavor.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cans of jackfruit in water, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup liquid aminos
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup date syrup
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca starch OR corn starch

For serving:


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking tray with nonstick foil.
  2. Add all of the sauce ingredients, except for the tapioca starch, into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and simmer gently for 5 minutes. Remove the sauce from the heat.
  3. Mix the tapioca starch with a tablespoon of water. Pour it into the sauce, whisking constantly. Once incorporated, return to the heat and bring back up to a simmer. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  4. Remove any seeds in your drained jackfruit. Add the jackfruit and 1 cup of the sauce into a saucepan. Cook, covered, for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Spread the jackfruit out on the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until the edges are browned and a little crispy.
  6. Serve the jackfruit with tortillas, topping of choice, and more sauce.

Notes

Some of these ingredients can be tricky to find depending on your grocery store. I purchase my jackfruit, liquid aminos, coconut sugar, date syrup, natural ketchup, sesame oil, and tapioca starch from Amazon. Links go directly to the products I use and love.
