Vegan, plant-based, Korean Bulgogi using jackfruit instead of meat, with a flavorful Bulgogi Sauce/marinade! Create a vegan Bulgogi Bowl with rice, veggies and kimchi! Can be made in under 30 minutes!


Bulgogi Sauce/Marinade:

20 oz can of jackfruit (packed in water), drained and rinsed

Serve with: cooked rice, steamed or sauteed veggies, kimchi, crunchy radishes to create a Bulgogi Bowl.


  1. In a bowl whisk together grated Asian pear, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, ginger, and gochujang.
  2. Gently shred jackfruit, hands work best here. Add to the marinade and carefully fold in until jackfruit is fully immersed in the liquid.
  3. Heat a cast-iron or non-stick pan to medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil, using tongs, place jackfruit in the skillet, letting the excess marinade drip back into the bowl. Spread jackfruit evenly in the pan and let it cook without stirring for about 3-4 minutes. Flip over letting it brown a bit, about another 3 minutes, adding more oil if needed.
  4. Pour the remaining marinade and green onions into the pan stir and heat thoroughly for another minute.
  5. Serve over rice with veggies, kimchi and a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds.


Vegan Jackfruit Bulgogi is great in tacos, burritos, lettuce wraps, sushi, spring rolls and so much more!

Feel free to use the flavorful marinade for thinly sliced chicken or beef (for mixed-diet households).

Leftovers will last in the fridge for 3-4 days.
