  • 1-2 tsp Oil of your choosing or you can water saute in a non-stick pan
  • 15-20 oz. Can of Jackfruit drained, rinsed and pulsed in a food processor
  • 1/4 c Dark Brown Sugar
  • 2-3 tsp Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 1/2 c Onion diced
  • 1/2 c Red Bell Pepper diced
  • 1/2 c Green Bell Pepper diced
  • 1-1/2 tsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire (vegan friendly)
  • 15 oz. Can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 4 Sesame Rolls lightly toasted


  • To prepare the jackfruit, simply drain, rinse and place into a food processor.  Pulse just a few times to get a shredded consistency.  Do not over process.  We want some of that texture.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the jackfruit and steak seasoning to the dry pan and saute until the moisture has almost evaporated and the edges start to get golden.
  • In another skillet, add the oil, onions and peppers sauteeing until tender. Add the red wine vinegar, brown sugar and vegan worcestershire.  Cook for 5-10 minutes until most of the liquids have evaporated.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add tomato sauce and tomato paste to pan. Simmer for another 5-10 minutes or until thickened slightly.
  • Toast buns lightly and add a scoop of the mixture.
  • Serve with your favorite sides such as tater tots, french fries or pickles.
