BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich

I have posted something similar to this in the past.  But I wanted to try the other method people use to cook the jackfruit.  I think I may actually prefer this method.  It is faster, and the jackfruit actually gets a more crispy texture.  Use any type of BBQ sauce.  The seasoning can make the jackfruit a bit spicy, so if heat is not your thing, use a sweeter BBQ sauce.

Estimated Cost Per Serving: $1.05


  • 2 17oz Cans of Jackfruit in Water
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 Cup of Diced Onion
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon of Cajun Seasoning
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Garlic Powder
  • 1 Cup of BBQ Sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Liquid Smoke (optional)
