      Thank you Karen! Jackfruit takes on the flavor of whatever spices and stuff you cook it with. It can be incorporated into so many dishes, you’d be amazed!

    I LOVE the idea of creating a vegan version of Irish Stew! The most important part is the Guinness anyways, right? Love, that you use jackfruit. I have been meaning to try a recipe with jackfruit after having enjoyed a jackfruit burger at my vegan friend’s birthday party. It is such a neat meat substitute!

    I am not a beer lover, but I DO like cooking with beer. This stew sounds like the perfect dish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with….and leftovers would be great for another dinner during the week.

    What a great idea! I an’t wait to try it. I eat almost 100% vegan, and I have been meaning to try a recipe with jackfruit forever. Looking forward to trying your recipe!

    Saint Patrick’s day was a big deal in my family too! I have never heard of jackfruit but am so intrigued that I’m going to ask for it at the nearest health food store! I love trying new things, especially vegan new things since I was once a vegan so many years ago that there wasn’t a lot of alternatives that tasted good. As soon as I find this jackfruit that you talk about, I’m going to try your yummy stew – and if I can’t find it, I’ll just add meat 🙂 just so I can try it. as it looks delicious!

    Oh how I love the tasty nectar of the Guinness Irish stew! This is one of my favorite dishes and I am making a double batch for a Saint Patrick’s gathering this weekend with friends. I would love to try it with jackfruit buy it is hard to come by here but I am going to look. We saw jackfruit everywhere and on the street when were visiting my daughter in Hanoi and it is tasty!

      A tasty nectar is a fine way to describe it Analida. Hope your gathering goes well and if you make this, regardless if you use jackfruit, let us know how it came out. Thanks much for your comment.

    This looks like such an amazing Irish Stew. I’ve been seeing a lot of recipes lately using Jackfruit as an alternative to meat. This looks delicious!

    I love that you made a vegan version of this! Looks delish and I love your memory story! I too have memories of my grandparents that are similar to this! Enjoyed reading this post and again love the fact that you turned this into a vegan meal!!

      Thank you Amanda, I really appreciate your comment. Memories are so special and we are lucky to have them!

    I don’t drink beer but we do cook with it. My kids will drink beer so we have it on hand when they visit. I’ve never heard of jackfruit — very interesting. I’m going to have to try it out. We use tofu occasionally when we make certain Asian dishes. I’ll have to find out more about jackfruit.

    Well done! This looks just like the real thing! I’ve never tried substituting with jackfruit because I’ve always found it so intimidating. I didn’t;t know you could get it already prepared. I would definitely try this next year for St. Patricks Day!

    • Vegan Vigilante says

      Thank you Lauren. The jackfruit I used in this was in a packet. You can also get it in a can and season it yourself. I think if I did it again, I would season the jackfruit a bit more. I only used sea salt and pepper on it this time. At any rate, I’m glad you will try it in the future.

    Great recipe! My family requests it often. One note: You don’t say when to put in the tarragon and tomato paste.

    Thanks for the recipe. Keep them coming!
