Using Amazonia’s new range of jackfruit, I had to give the quintessential Korean dish - Bulgogi, a go! Jackfruit has a very stringy and meaty texture which works amazing in dishes to replicate pulled pork or few other meats. Replicating bulgogi with jackfruit wasn’t too hard at all- it’s all about getting the marinade right! The marinade is very simple, it’s known for it’s sweet tangs and saltiness from soy sauce. Enjoy :)
Hearty + Healthy Jackfruit ‘Bulgogi’ (v, gf)
Makes 3-4 servings
Print recipe here
300g jackfruit, drained (I used Amazonia Tender Jack)
¼ cup soy sauce
3 tbsp agave syrup
½ tbsp sesame oil
1 ½ tsp ground garlic
¼ tsp white pepper
In a bowl, create your marinade: soy sauce, agave, sesame oil, garlic and pepper. Mix well.
In another bowl, use your hands to break down the jackfruit into fine pieces/strands. Pour over the marinade and let sit for 10-20 minutes to absorb the flavour.
Heat a pan to medium-high and cook jackfruit for 5-10 minutes, continually mixing until all liquid has evaporated/soaked in. Take off heat and serve as desired! I served it on some brown rice, greens and kimchi.
