FTA: "We rub it with a mix of ancho and chipotle powder, cumin, paprika, black pepper and kosher salt," he explained. Then, after blackening/searing on the plancha, the fruit is braised in a basic salsa verde till it becomes tender and starts to shred like meat.
"To order, we pan-sear it in an oil infused with Mexican oregano and garlic, put it on corn tortillas and garnish with onion, cilantro and lime. Simple!"


Translation:  If overload it with spices, we can kind of disguise the flavor so that maybe, if you close your eyes, you might accidentally think you were eating meat.

Jackfruit can cause all sorts of problems if you're not careful.

Dammit!  Four minutes too late.  Well, thanks for doing the needful, at any rate.

Really. I know fark all about cooking and even I picked up on that. You could douse a shoe in that much crap and eat it.

Jackfruit and durian are in the same family draw your conclusions from there.

Uh, that's fewer ingredients than for meat-based taco spice.

Except a shoe tastes bad. This stuff, at least according to the article, and definitely tofu, have little discernible flavor of their own.

You put the spices on it so it tastes like something, not to cover up any foul taste.

Never had jackfruit, but I don't see why you found it scary, subby. If it can be used to make something yummy, what's the problem?

Ripe jackfruit is delicious.  I've never tried the unripe version as a meat substitute, though.  I think it's pretty interesting, and I'd love to try it.

Future headline: Wild popularity of jackfruit in north causes huge price increases, scarcity among indigenous populations that rely on it.

/just like quinoa

I'm willing to try it. As long as it's NOTHING like the Durian fruit.
 
2013-06-15 04:22:32 PM
Jackfruit is npthing special, just a watermelon with a load of lotus seed pods inside causing you to take forever to get at the tiny amount of fruit. It's like the crab of fruits.

Ditto. Ripe jackfruit is also pretty tasty in ice cream. I'd be willing to at least try the unripe version, it might turn out to be a nice change of pace instead of meat.

Way to go, vegans. Yet ANOTHER tropical food product that will be devoured by the voracious First World and leave the Third World no longer able to afford it. It's quinoa 2, electric boogaloo.

I'm rackin' my brain trying to think of a name for that diamond pony I bought. I was gonna call it "piss-for-brains" in honor of you, but that just feels immature. Maybe..."Butt Stallion"? Nah, that's even worse. I'll give it some more thought.

It's a closely-kept secret that besides being used as a meat substitute, jackfruit is also occasionally used as a stand in for actors who are little more than big slabs of meat themselves. In any movie featuring Steven Seagal or Sam Worthington, for example, at least half of their scenes are actually played by mildly disguised jackfruit. The resemblance is so uncanny, even the film crews involved on the shoots have difficulty telling whether they're working with the actor or the vegetable.

It's also rumored that unless there's a major vote on pay raises going on, at least 65% of our representatives just fill their seats with jackfruit and sneak out to bang geriatric hookers in the executive lounge. This has of course been strenuously denied by the Jackfruit Anti-Defamation Association.

No Idea what this has to do with Entertainment, but I'll say this: if the Memphis Taproom or the Cantinas are serving it, it's going to be awesome.  I've never had a bad meal at either.

It's not a substitute for its flavor, it's for the texture.  Like tofu and chicken it's a flavorless protein that you put things on to make it taste like something.

You want a meat substitute?  It's called garlic naan with chicken tikka masala.  I can assure you it has very little meat in it.

Speaking as someone who believes that people in general should eat less meat because it's healthier and better for the environment, I like this!By the way, it used to be that "meat" meant any food. If you don't take your meat, you can't have any pudding! Sometimes I wonder what word was used to refer to the muscular flesh of animals as food back in the days when meat (mete in Old English) referred to food in general. Anyone have any idea?Take care!

I never noticed that... In French "met" or "mets" means "meal".

Thanks for the nod, FloydA! Your complimentary basket of jackfruit has been boxed, giftwrapped, and mercifully lost in transit! (With jackfruit, the thought is about the only thing that counts.)
