Ingredient List

Meatballs:

  • 1 10.6-ounce package Upton’s Naturals Chili Lime Carnitas Jackfruit
  • 1 1/2 cup panko (or other breadcrumbs)
  • 2 tablespoons vital wheat gluten
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1 green onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon agave or maple syrup
  • 1-2 tablespoons chili sauce
  • Juice of 1/2 lime

 

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind concentrate (or lime juice)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

directions
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Mix together all of the meatball ingredients and mash together with a potato masher until the mixture holds together. Add more panko if the mixture is too soft or liquid.

Form into approximately 18 meatballs and place on a prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the edges are crispy.

Mix all of the sauce ingredients in a large bowl. Add the meatballs and stir to coat. Make sandwiches with 3 meatballs per bun, and pour extra sauce over the meatballs. Garnish with fresh cilantro or Thai basil.
