I like trying new ideas with pulled prok and I heard that searing the pork before outting it into the crockpot will enhance flavors and allow spices to blend into the meat rather than floating it in water.

3. Using a a dry plate plate pat pork until dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle rub over pork and distribute with your hand until evenly coated. Coat all sides evenly. If pork has any small cuts from butcher then fill these in with the herbs. you want the pork to be covered in turmeric & herbs on all sides.

4. Brown seasoned pork in hot oil for 2-3 minutes until it is crispy or golden in color. Keep turning pork with tongs until every inch has seared. If standing pork up cos long use a spear-fork to prevent it from falling over.

5. Place onions and water in bottom of a crock pot and turn on high. Lay the seared pork gently on top of the bed of fine onions. Some people use onion soup mix here but it's hard to find in Asia. Cover and cook for 4-hrs on high.

6. 1-hr before serving. remove the pork to a plate and let it cool down some. Dump out the onions and wipe the crock-pot down as pork cools. Mix honey, mustard, and BBQ sauce into a small bowl. Set aside
