For The Sandwiches:

Pork Butt:

  1. I find it best to cut pork roast into manageable pieces, it cooks much quicker.
  2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Add oil to the bottom of the pan and quickly add in your pork. Let the meat sear for a few minutes until the exterior is crispy and golden.
  4. Continue flipping and browning the meat until most of the sides are crispy. 
  5. Place pork in a roasting pan and add the grated pear, the bone stock, and salt and pepper.
  6. Let the pork cook over low heat for at least 6 hours or until the meat is tender

Make the Slaw:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the mayo, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, and mix until smooth.
  2. Add in the cabbage, apple, carrots and onion and stir.
  3. Allow to marinate for before using.

Assemble the Sandwich:

  1. Split and broil your buns in the oven until lightly golden.
  2. Evenly distribute the pork, the slaw and the sweet and spicy pickles.
