Thought I should try this since online and other brands are expensive. This has good quality jackfruit. I am not a vegetarian but do love jackfruit since where I am from originally, Sri Lanka, this is a favourite dish!! People need to know jackfruit doesn't have any flavour and you need to flavour it. Takes any flavour you give. I cook either a Sri Lankan jackfruit curry or jerk jackfruit. Whatever it is you cook, you need to slow cook for some time - I cook 2 tins for about 45 minutes. Then it is easy to shred or do whatever you want. Persevere with it and you will be amazed at results!!
Maybe I was unlucky...
The tin I had was poor quality, very hard and not easy to shred. Probably not ripe enough when canned. I think it's worth going elsewhere to buy if no alternative is available at Tesco.
Good product. Very good price
my first time to try this. i was quite impressed. im not a vegetarian but i do like to cook meat free asian meals. basically, you have to quite finely slice this, then give it a good frying with plenty of garlic, ginger, chilli, seasoning, etc. it absorbs flavour too, so stock, oyster sauce, soy sauce & fish sauce all work well.
I saw a recipe with jackfruit in it in the tesco m
I saw a recipe with jackfruit in it in the tesco magazine and it looked delicious so I was eager to try it out. I was completely disappointed. First of all the tinned chunks were white whereas normal jackfruit is yellow. It tasted chewy and like plastic. I buy tinned pineapple and that is sweet and tastes like the real fruit. Not reccommended however in put it in the bin before even trying to cook it so cooking may make it taste better
As good as any.
Jackfruit is a sponge. It's entirely what you make it. I've used the Plant chef one a few times now to make a brisket type stew and pulled pork substitute. Both times worked like a charm. Is it exactly like meat, no it's not but it has a great texture and carries flavours incredibly well. All the negative comments are bizarre to me as jackfruit is a blank canvas.
Fabulous meat substitute
I’m new to a plant based diet and this has made life so much easier. You can use it to substitute meat in lots dishes like curries, bolognese and with barbecue sauce you can have it as vegetarian pulled pork. It’s quick and easy to use and low in calories, fat and has no cholesterol but has all the good stuff so super healthy. 😁
Tastes nice to me marinated in bbq sauce and serve
Tastes nice to me marinated in bbq sauce and served in tacos.
A disappointing produce which has a unpleasant textured and no favour.
love the convenience of a tinned product
......... but you cant beat the flavour of fresh). Great for time saving and fab in vegan curries as a meat substitute - absorbs the flavour of the sauce.
