    We live in the South, so some of us may have a Southern accent, but would you consider saying "goodbye" to "howdy, y'all"?
    The Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee was going to offer a speech class for its workers next month to do just that, until it got canceled.

(KYTX) - This week on FRESH Ideas I was joined by Managing Editor, Brian Pearson. Together we prepared some of our favorite slow cooker recipes that we like to serve at game-watching or tailgate parties.

These two recipes definitely keep the party guests happy. People can't get enough of my slow cooked shredded pork roast with great spicy Asian flavor or Brian's White Queso with fresh pico de gallo and a hint of wine. The wine adds to the flavor, but is actually there to keep the cheese creamy and smooth from the beginning of the party to the end.

Kung Pao Spicy Pork Sandwiches

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 to 2 pound pork roast, excess fat or silverskin removed

1/3 cup rice wine vinegar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup hoisin sauce

1/3 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons sriracha (more or less, to taste)

2 teaspoons each fresh ginger & garlic, grated

 

DIRECTIONS

Place the pork and all other ingredients in the slow cooker. Cook on high for four to six hours or until pork is tender enough to shred with two forks. Taste for seasoning. Add more sriracha to give the pork more spice. Serve on hamburger buns or thick white bread.

Brian's White Queso

INGREDIENTS

1 block of white Velveeta cheese (32 ounce size)

1 to 2 cups of fresh pico de gallo mix (available in produce section)

1/2 cup white wine

DIRECTIONS

Place all ingredients in the slow cooker. Place on low and let melt for about an hour. Stir all ingredients together and continue to warm on low. The wine helps the cheese stay smooth over a long period of time.
