Pressure Cooker Jackfruit Teriyaki in a Half Hour

Pressure Cooker Jackfruit Teriyaki takes less than half an hour to make. Serve it up over rice or in a sandwich, sloppy Joe-style.

If you’ve never tried jackfruit before, prepare to be amazed! This vegan meat alternative used to be hard to find, but now you can get jackfruit in brine at Trader Joe’s, which I think means that it is officially mainstream. There are lots of ways to enjoy this healthy, whole food,and this Pressure Cooker Jackfruit Teriyaki is a great place to start.

Jackfruitis actually part of the mulberry family. It’slow in calories, at just 45 calories in a one-cup serving, and it packs in seven grams of fiber, which is 28 percent of your daily fiber needs. A cup of jackfruit also contains four percent of your daily calcium and your daily iron requirements. Not too shabby!

Pressure Cooker Jackfruit Teriyaki takes less than half an hour to make. Serve it up over rice or in a sandwich, sloppy Joe-style.

If you buy canned jackfruit in brine, you might be a little bit shocked by the sodium content. The canned jackfruit from Trader Joe’s has 135mg of sodium per cup, but don’t worry! You are going tothoroughly rinse your jackfruit before you start cooking, so most of that salt goes down thedrain.

Ingredients

  • 1 20 ounce can of jackfruit in brine (NOT in syrup - this recipe will not work if you choose canned in syrup.)
  • 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons minced ginger
  • 1/4 cup water

Instructions

  1. Pour your jackfruit into a colander, and rinse well, using your fingers to pull the fruit apart into smaller pieces, so you can really get in there and rinse the excess salt away.
  2. Transfer the drained jackfruit to your pressure cooker, and stir in the teriyaki sauce, garlic, ginger, and water.
  3. Cover the pot, and bring to high pressure for 3 minutes, then do a natural release (10 minutes).
  4. Shred your jackfruit even more with a fork, then serve on a bun with onion and pineapple or over rice with pineapple and your favorite veggies.
