Tahoe dining: Pop Pulled Pork for Presidents' Day

TAHOE/TRUCKEE — Wow. Try saying that fast three times. Maybe, because it is for Presidents' Day, it should be a recipe for pulled leg, i.e. “We're going after weapons of mass destruction,” “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” “There will be no mandated health care,” etc.

Plus pulled pork doesn't sound appetizing, or even hygienic. I mean, I understand pulled taffy — that's part of the process. I've seen the machines at county fairs. But never has a vendor approached me at a carnival and said “Hey little lady. Wanna' try your hand at pulling pork?” At least not without getting arrested. Really , there is no tugging involved in this pulled pork recipe, so go figure. I can, however, explain the “Pop.”

That would be root beer, plain and simple. The following is a beautifully easy recipe for this holiday weekend. The fact you just throw it all in a crock pot means you will have ample time for the slopes.
