In a large skillet over medium high heat, add 2 tbsp oil, jackfruit and onions, and sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until the ingredients start to brown. Add bbq sauce and 1 tbsp of water and continue cooking, uncovered, for 10-15 minutes until jackfruit becomes soft in texture.
Remove skillet from heat and transfer jackfruit mixture to a metal bowl. Using two forks, shred jackfruit arils and let rest while preparing the slaw topper.
In a medium bowl, add the mayonnaise, sesame oil and lime juice, and whisk to combine. Then add the cabbage and kale, and massage for 2-3 minutes. Add sesame seeds and cilantro and toss to combine.
