For the pulled jackfruit
- 500 grams jackfruit
- Salt to season
- A couple of tablespoons of soy sauce
- 1 tsp red chilli powder
- 1-2 tbsp oil
- 1 tbsp gochujang paste
- 1 tsp garlic paste
- 1/2 tsp ginger paste
- 1-2 green chillies, chopped
- Coriander (to taste)
- 1 tsp honey
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 cup water
- 2 tbsp chopped spring onions (scallions)
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
For the aioli
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1-2 tsp Fresh coriander
- 1-2 tsp Spring onions (scallions)
- Salt and pepper to taste
To assemble the sliders
- Burger or slider buns
- Lettuce of choice
- Kimchi or pickled onions and carrots
- Cheddar cheese
Preparing the Jackfruit filling
- Peel and cut the jackfruit into chunks. Season with salt, soy sauce and red chilli powder and let it marinate for half an hour.
- Next, heat up the oil and shallow fry your jackfruit until caramelised. Take your pan off the stove and add your Gochujang, garlic paste, ginger paste, green chillies, coriander, honey and lemon juice. Mix well and let it sit for a bit. Then, add one cup of water to the pan and slowly bring to a simmer on a stovetop or the oven, until the jackfruit is soft and pulls apart like meat. Take it off the heat and mix in some scallions and toasted sesame seeds for a fresh, nutty flavour.
How to make the aioli
- Simply mix in the mayonnaise with all your other ingredients to make your aioli spread.
Assembling the sliders
- Toast the buns. Spread your aioli on the lower half, and place the lettuce of your choice. Now, spoon in some of the jackfruit filling, add kimchi or your pickled veggies. Top with a slice of cheddar cheese and close the bun with the other half on top, and you’re done!
