This Korean BBQ Pulled Jackfruit is sweet, spicy and packed with flavour! It’s easy to make, takes only 20 minutes and requires just 4 ingredients. So delicious paired with rice and Korean side dishes.



  • 2 15 oz cans of young green jackfruit
  • 1 package of soy curls (150g), rehydrated and drained*
  • 2 medium onions, sliced
  • 11.5 cup Korean BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Additional korean side dishes or any vegetables you have on hand! Spinach, carrots, sugar snap peas are delicious paired with this.
  • Optional toppings: green onions, sesame seeds, drizzle of sesame oil, sriracha.. etc


  1. Heat a wok or large skillet over medium high heat. Add in the sliced onions and fry until lighty browned and translucent (around 1 minute)
  2. Add in the drained jackfruit, soy curls, BBQ sauce and water. Stir to coat all the jackfruit and soy curls.
  3. Shred the jackfruit pieces with a fork until it resembles “pulled pork”. Cook for 4-6 minutes. Stir and taste. Add more BBQ sauce, salt or pepper if needed. Allow it to cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Serve immediately over rice with some vegetables. Top with sesame seeds and green onions if desired.


* be sure to squeeze the excess rehydrated soy curls liquid out so that it can absorb the sauce well.

I used my home made Korean BBQ Sauce that is vegan & refined sugar free!
