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. 😀
