New Coke Super Bowl Ad + $100 Party Kit Giveaway!

I'll admit it... I watch the Super Bowl for the ads, not the game. In fact, I'm the annoying person who shushes people during the commercials. :)

So I was excited when Coke approached me about sharing their Super Bowl ad that's going to air during the second half of the game. I found it really uplifting. I love a story that shows the triumph of the underdog! Take a look and see what you think. I bet it will make you smile, too. :)

If you like the ad, please share it! Once it has been shared 10,000 times, Coca Cola will donate $50,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America Triple Play Program, wellness program that improves the overall health of it's young members. And if there is an organization that celebrates the triumph of the underdog, it's BGCA!

We're also excited because Coke has also given us a Coca Cola party kit (worth $100) to give  to one of our lucky users!

Win a Coca Cola party kit worth $100

The  kit includes:

  • Coca-Cola product
  • Domino’s Pizza gift card ($50 value)
  • Coca-Cola 12-oz. can glasses set (four glass per set)
  • Coca-Cola Refreshing Recipe book
  • Coca-Cola mini football
  • Coca-Cola pizza cutter
  • Galvanized Large Party tub
  • 2 Coca-Cola Contour Bottle T-shirts
Here's how to enter:

{RECIPE} Pulled Pork Sandwich with Spicy Asian Slaw

pulled-pork-spicy-asian-slaw-14A-533x800 (1)

My husband loves pulled pork sandwiches, so I thought I'd post our favorite pulled pork recipe that goes beautifully with our yummy spicy Asian slaw.

This dish would be perfect to serve at a Super Bowl party!!

PULLED PORK

Ingredients:

  • 1 bone-in pork butt (6 to 8 pounds)
  • 1/3 cup kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder

Directions:

Prepare the rub by mixing together the brown sugar, salt, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, and dry mustard.

Cut through the fat on the top of the shoulder in a 1 inch crosshatch pattern. Cut through the fat, but try not to cut into the meat.

Rub the mixed seasoning on the entire shoulder and into the cuts on the top.

Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator over night (at least 12 hours). We put ours on a cookie sheet to catch any drippings.

When you are ready to cook, preheat the oven to 325 degrees and lower the rack to its lowest position.

Unwrap the shoulder, and wipe of any excess rub off that hasn't been absorbed into the meat. Place the shoulder on a greased rack in a roasting pan with 3-4 cups of water in the bottom to keep the drippings from burning.

You can baste the shoulder a few times with the liquid during the cooking process. We refilled the water once about half way through.

Cook until the internal temp is at least 190 degrees. If you take it out too soon, the meat won't be tender. A probe thermometer is very helpful as the cooking time can vary depending on the size of the shoulder and the over. Our 7lb. shoulder took 8 hours to reach 190 degrees.

Here it is right out of the oven.

Let the shoulder rest for an hour, then use two forks to pull it apart. It should shred easily.

SPICY ASIAN SLAW

Ingredients:

Slaw

  • 2 cups napa cabbage (about half a head)
  • 2 cups radicchio (about half a head)
  • 1 grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
Dressing
  • 2 teaspoons dry Chinese or English (Coleman's) mustard
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoons light sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

 

Directions:

Quarter the cabbage and radicchio, and cut out the hearts. Slice thinly and mix with the onions, cilantro, and carrots.

Mix together the dressing ingredients.

Add the dressing to the chopped vegetables.

Toss with the sesame seeds to taste.

And here's the final product again... Yum!!

At the end of the Super Bowl, the team that gets the most votes and the fewest sabotages will win, and they'll air the winning commercial after the final whistle of the Super Bowl. Plus, during the game there is going to be a ton of "behind the scenes" updates on the Coca Cola Facebook page, Twitter, and YouTube channel.

And here's the best part, to celebrate the Super Bowl, Coke is giving two of our lucky readers this Party Bucket worth $100.
