    I bought the prepackaged organic Jackfruit and followed the recipe on the back for the BBQ sandwich and it was amazing!!!! My husband said it was as good as the real deal!!!! Will be making this again!!!!!  -  04 Aug 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We really liked it but for my taste I would use less BBQ sauce (I used a whole bottle) add some water and reduce the cooking time. The jack fruit wasn't as meaty as I thought it would be. All in all very good and I'll be definitely making it again.  -  14 Jul 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Jackfruit is very versatile and this recipe is awesome. Your bbq sauce will make or break the recipe, so use a good one! Served with cole slaw this makes a vegetarian dream sandwich and meat eaters will love it too!!  -  21 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
