Ludo Lefebvre and David Gregory on 'Today'In a segment sure to provoke mock-patriotic outrage from Stephen Colbert, French chef Ludo Levebvre appeared on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC) and made a pork shoulder in a salt crust, North Carolina-style. But at least Levebre has American TV credits: He is the star of the Sundance Channel's 'Ludo Bites America,' has been on 'Top Chef Masters,' and is known as the "king of the pop up restaurants."

Showing the audience how to make the dish on the "Today's Kitchen: Step-By-Step" segment, Levebvre made the crust with salt, flour, water, and canola oil and wrapped it around a pork shoulder with the bone still in it. "It's better with the bone because you get more flavor," he said.

When the dish is cooked, you need a hammer to get through the crust. Lefebvre and NBC's David Gregory smashed through it with a hammer, barely making a dent. It looked good delicious once they got the finished product to the plate, though.
