In a small mixing bowl, whisk together all ingredients for the sauce except for the flour. Transfer to a small saucepan. Cover and bring to a bubble on low-medium heat. Reduce heat and whisk frequently until the sauce is thick (about 30 minutes). If you prefer a thicker sauce, stir in flour or cornstarch.
Drain jackfruit and transfer to pan over low-medium heat. Once jackfruit gets warm, mash with the backside of a fork or potato masher. Note, some jackfruit might have seeds still. Discard.
Mix sauce with jackfruit, reserving some for topping on sliders.
To assemble sliders, pile on jackfruit, extra sauce, cilantro, and pineapple chunks onto a toasted bun. Repeat until all the sliders are made.
