How to Make It


  1. Begin by seasoning the butt. Heavily salt and pepper the butt while massaging into the meat. Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat.
  2. Add oil to the bottom of the pan and quickly add in your pork butt. Let the meat sear for a few minutes until the exterior is crispy and golden.
  3. Continue flipping and browning the meat until most of the sides are crispy. 
  4. Put your browned pork butt in a large crock pot and add the grated pear, the soy sauce and the Kirin beer. Let the pork butt cook over low heat for at least 6 hours or until the meat is tender and practically falling off the bone. 


    1. In a large bowl, combine the mayo, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and salt and mix until smooth. Add in the cabbage, apple, carrots and red onion and stir. Let sit for 20 minutes before using.


    1. Split and broil your buns in the oven until lightly golden then evenly distribute the pork, the asian bbq sauce, the slaw and lastly the sweet and spicy pickles.
