Vegan Pulled Pork Burger with Caramelized Onion

vegan pulled pork burger with caramelized onion Burger vegan

This is the best vegan pulled pork burger recipe you’ll ever make! Made with no exotic and expensive ingredients, just with simple, affordable foods. 

I’ve done it! I created the best vegan pulled pork burger ever! No exotic and hard to find ingredients, such as Jackfruits, just simple, affordable mushrooms! I am so excited to share this recipe with you! It was AAAAAAHHHHMAZING!

In case you’re not familiar with what pulled pork means, you should know that this is a method of cooking pork. The meat is cooked slowly at low temperatures, allowing it to become tender enough so that it can be “pulled”, or easily separated into individual pieces. If you take a look at how the original, meat-based pulled pork recipes look like, you’ll see that this vegan version looks exactly the same! 🙂

I can’t contain my happiness! 😀 After I made the vegan steak I didn’t think I would be able to make something better than that when it comes to fake meats, but I was wrong! Oh…so wrong! I know, I know, I’m not modest at all, but after you’ve tried this recipe, you’ll understand what I’m talking about! 🙂

I am 100% sure omnivores will have a hard time noticing that these are not made with meat, but mushrooms instead! Completely cruelty-free – 100% delicious!

I used almost the same blend of spices I created for the vegan steak recipe. You can use this spice mix if you want to give your recipes a delicious BBQ taste.

As you can suspect, eating this vegan pulled pork burger was a complete mess. Oh, but a tasty, tasty mess. 😀

  1. Hi, just checked your recipes since I bought some pink oyster mushrooms for the first time.
    Baby jackfruits have a meaty texture and there another similar fruit called bread fruit. While both jackfruit and bread fruit and also mushrooms are cooked in india with the same recipes for meat, the spice paste for the curry is made milder as they are vegetables. Another favourite is fresh cashew nuts. Bread fruit is delicious when fried just like potato with a little spice rub or even plain. We Indians have a variety of vegetarian cuisine and so its sad when we are known only for chicken tikka.

  2. Oh my God, this is the best vegan burger I ever had! And it looks amazing. My husband didn’t even realize it wasn’t meat until he finished it lol. It’s perfectly delicious, thank you so much for sharing!

  3. FYI, lots of commercial BBQ sauces contain anchovies, so make sure of that if you want it to be 100% vegan/vegetarian.

  4. I get that a lot from non-veg people. Its not so much that I want to imitate meat; I don’t enjoy its texture or flavour. What I do want is a “main” in my meal that has substance and flavour, that I can easily substitute into common meat-eater’s meals, so that I can eat beside my family and not spend hours in the kitchen 🙂 And yes, it is more likely that my family will partake when it looks and tastes familiar to them, and they don’t feel as though they are “missing” the meat!

  5. This looks decadent! I’ll try that for sure. I wanted to make the one with the jack fruit but like you said it’s kinda hard to find! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

    1. Thanks, Lauriane! 😀 Jackfruit is impossible to find here in Romania and that’s why I tried this version. I don’t know how the jackfruit’s texture is, but oyster mushrooms are pretty amazing too! 😀

    1. First of all, I’m not vegan, I am vegetarian because I also eat eggs (only from a friend of mine who has some happy hens in her yard). Second, I wasn’t born this way. I used to eat a lot of meat (unfortunately..). I gave up meat 5 years ago and even though I will never go back to eating it, I still remember (and sometimes miss) its taste and texture. Also, by veganizing popular meat-based recipes, we can convert more people to vegetarianism! 🙂 I tell this from experience.
