BBQ Jack Sandwiches

Robin says, "Look for canned water-packed jackfruit in Asian markets or well-stocked supermarkets (do not get the kind packed in syrup). If jackfruit is unavailable, substitute your choice of chopped seitan, steamed crumbled tempeh, chopped mushrooms, or reconstituted TVP or Soy Curls.

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the jackfruit and chiles and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the barbecue sauce, tamari, mustard, paprika, liquid smoke, onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, to heat through and blend the flavors, about 8 minutes.
  • Mix well, adding a little water if the mixture is too dry.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings, if needed.
  • When ready to serve, spoon the mixture onto the rolls and serve hot.
