I’m riding a learning curve! After some research on vegan pork, I came across a website that made fabulous Vegan BBQ pulled “pork” sandwiches…..using Asian Jack Fruit!
The site is: cleangreensimple.com
You can buy Asian Jackfruit in Asian markets. It was recommended that you buy them in brine, not in syrup. I did this, and attempted to make Balsamic Glazed & Rosemary Pork medallions. I think the problem came with the jackfruit being in brine and that combining with the balsamic vinegar didn’t create the flavor I was expecting. I should have rinsed the jackfruit thoroughly to remove more of the brine flavor.
I could see how the BBQ pulled pork and spices recipes balanced or even negated the brine, though with balsamic vinegar more enhanced it.
I made it with polenta, so I ended up laying the jack fruit over the polenta and having it that way, which was good. The polenta neutralized some of the enhancement of the vinegar & brine flavor. The rosemary, balsamic jackfruit over polenta was tasty.
I’ll continue to experiment with jackfruit and let you know my progress 🙂
For now, here is the recipe, I apologize, I’m using a new laptop and my two recent videos of recipes I’ve recorded got erased by accident. So the next recipe will be video-less as well….!!
Let me know if you experiment or create with jackfruit and how it goes!
