I think I should preface with the fact that I’ve never had pulled pork. I have, however, always been a fan of the Mary-Kate and Ashley movie “It Takes Two” and liked the look of the Sloppy Joes that Amanda ate. (Note: I just googled what a Sloppy Joe is and am disappointed that they look nowhere near as good as what I made.) I heard so much about making “pulled pork” with jackfruit, but I’ve never had a chance to find it, so I tried making it with some food I had at home.
To put it simply, it was fan-heckin-tastic!
You will need:
- Half a carrot
- 1 potato
- Quarter of an onion
- Ground black pepper
- Spray oil
And for the sauce:
- Barbecue sauce
- Apple cider vinegar
- Mexican chilli powder
First, preheat the oven to 200C
Grate the potato and carrot and dice the onion.
In a baking tray with parchment paper, spread out the vegetables, spray them with a bit of oil, then sprinkle on a bit of salt and pepper. Mix it through with your hands and spread it out on the tray.
Cover it with Alfoil then put it in the oven for 20-ish minutes, taking it out every 10 minutes to shake.
While that’s cooking, mix up the sauce in a saucepan. I eyeballed the barbecue sauce and Mexican chilli powder, and added a teaspoon of the vinegar.
Heat the sauce for about 10 minutes and stir consistently, then take off the heat.
When the vegetables are ready, put the sauce back on the heat and mix them through in the saucepan for about 10 minutes.
Once ready, serve it however you wish. I had it on a sandwich with lettuce.
Not the prettiest, but delicious.
