Pork Sliders are awesome but since I’ve been vegetarian, I’m still craving pork because it’s incredible. Good news, I think I finally figured out the perfect recipe to make “Pork” Sliders, with zero pork in them, yasss!
I’ve searched and tried numerous “pork slider” recipes that are vegetarian (which you could make them vegan also) but none really lived up to my expectation or the hype. So after some trial and error I think I may have fashioned up some delicious appetizers (or entrees) that we all can enjoy.
Remember, depending on your eating restrictions you can substitute sauces and breads as you please but this is just how I’ve made them. Enjoy!
TOTAL TIME SPENT: 30-35min | FEEDS up to 4 people (8 sliders)
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 3 cans of Jackfruit (or fresh Jackfruit if you can find it)
- 1 can of Pinto Beans
- 2 cups of mixed green (finely chopped), for coleslaw
- Just Spicy Mayo (for coleslaw)
- BBQ Sauce
- Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder
- Schar Gluten Free Ciabatta
HOW TO MAKE:
Start by preheating your oven to 450 degrees so you can get the ciabatta bread nice and crispy (wait until the end to bake).
In a large pot, fill halfway with water and bring to a boil. Then toss in all 3 cans of Jackfruit, simmer in water for 12mins.
In a separate skillet, start to cook the pinto beans on low (be sure to drain all the water out of the can before cooking).
Then, drain the Jackfruit but keep the burner on low. Once you’ve drained them, toss them back in the pot and add seasoning and oil (optional)
Once you’ve shredded the jackfruit (to give it the “pork like” look), add in your BBQ sauce(s) or even hot sauce for an extra kick. Stir until the sauce is blended to your desire.
Lastly, don’t forget about the beans! Dump all the beans into the large pot and stir/smush everything together until the beans and jackfruit are mixed together perfectly.
By this time, the oven that you preheated should be nice and toasty. While your creation is simmering on a very low setting (stir occasionally), go ahead a put your buns in the oven until their toasted just how you want.
