If there is something we love just as much as craft beer, it's good food. What better way to celebrate both worlds than with a recipe that combines them both together? Here at The Pub at Golden Road,Chef Adam whips up these vegan-friendly jackfruit tacos made with our Golden Road Hefeweizen to mimic carnitas. The result is shockingly convincing and will be a hit even among your not-so vegan friends.
A little from Chef Adam...
Jackfruit can make a great meat substitute as it has a very similar texture as proteins like pulled pork or shredded chicken. When using unsweetened jackfruit you must remember to overcome the natural bitterness of the fruit.
In this recipe we use maple syrup and the lightly sweet and citrus-forward Hefeweizen to contradict the bitterness. In the end we get a super flavorful "meat" perfect for tacos and sandwiches.
