Beanless Indian Shredded “Beef” Chili

Years ago, I taught a course called “Food for Thought,” in which we examined food from different cultures. When the assignment about traditional family recipes came up, one student from Pakistan offered his mother’s “Beef Chili,” slow-cooked shredded beef in a thick, spicy tomato sauce and without any beans. I was immediately intrigued, but never did try the recipe. Here I’ve revised the original using jackfruit (a staple of Malaysian or Filipino cuisine), as it resembles shredded beef perfectly once cooked. Be sure to buy cans of young jackfruit in salty brine, not the sweetened ones that are used for desserts.
