Pulled Jackfruit with Crispy Potatoes and Barbecue Sauce

Pulled Jackfruit with Crispy Potatoes and Barbecue Sauce

[Advertising: Affiliate Links]

Do you know jackfruit? I have never seen it fresh, but several times canned in the asian supermarket. There you can buy the yellow ripe jackfruit frozen or canned in syrup.

For this recipe you need the young, green jackfruit. You can also buy it in the asian supermarket. It is marinated in brine and canned. The barbecue sauce fits the pulled jackfruit perfectly. It is really delicious, I could melt away. Let it simmer while the potatoes are baking. So everything is done at the same time. You will only need a part of the sauce. Pour the rest of the sauce hot in a clean screw top jar. It will form a vacuum and stay fresh for weeks, stored in the fridge.

The potatoes are powdered with starch and then covered in a litte oil. This combination makes them really crispy while using just a litte oil. Try it!
As a side dish, serve a salad with this meal.

Enjoy this delicious meal!

Love,

Rina

Zubereitung/Instructions
  1. Drain the jackfruit in a sieve and pull apart the slices. Rinse afterwards and let drain well.

Then reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 25 minutes. Stir occasionally.

  3. Preheat the oven to 220° C (430° F).
  4. Quarter the potatoes lengthwise and put them and the starch in a freezing bag. Shake until every potato wedge is covered in starch. Then add the oil, salt and pepper and shake again to cover the potatoes with the oil.

  5. Pour the potatoes on a baking sheet covered tray and spread them. Make sure they lie on one of the cut surfaces. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes, then turn them over to the other cut surface and bake for another 10 minutes.

  6. In a pan heat up the oil and fry the jackfruit for about 3 -4 minutes, then add the onion and sautée for another 2 -3 minutes. Remove the pan from the stove and stir in 4 - 6 tbs of the barbecue sauce.

  7. Arrange the potatoes on two plates, pour over the pulled jackfruit and serve with a green salad.

    Vorzüglich!!!! MIr hat zwar ziemlich viel Schnickschnack für die BBQ-Soße gefehlt, was ich alles durch Agavendicksaft ersetzt hatte, aber es hat trotzdem prima funktioniert und war einfach nur zum Niederknien!

    Hallo Rina,

    mein Mann hat am Freitag die Erdbeer -Rabarber- Hefeteig Schiffchen gebacken , am Samstag gabs dann das Schokoladen- Erdnussbutter Porridge zum Frühstück und heute hat mich mein Mann mit diesem Essen bekocht…. Und wirklich…. Alles sooooooo mega lecker!! Wir verzichten bisher nur auf Fleisch,Milch und Quark / Jogurth aber wenn ich mir deine Rezepte so anschau, kann vegan sein auch nicht soooo schwer sein…!
    Wir werden auf alle Fälle weitere Rezepte von deiner Seite ausprobieren 🙂

    Danke!!!

    PS: Am Wochenende wurde ich von jemand der sich nie mit Ernährung befasst hat gefragt, von was man sich so ernährt, wenn man kein Fleisch isst *lach*…
