VIDEO: Dinner Party Recipe Review—Beef Roast with Dark Rum Sauce in the Crock Pot

I love to throw dinner parties! But putting together a meal for a group of guests has become much more challenging since we became parents of three. My power weapon for entertaining (and pretty much every other night of the week)?

My Crock Pot!

Last night I made a dinner for my husband and his twin brother’s birthday. I tried out a new recipe from a slow cooker cookbook my mom gave me for Christmas, and here is my review of it—plus a little tip to make this recipe a truly amazing, melt-in-your-mouth affair.

The book I mentioned is “Crock Pot the Original Slow Cooker Skinny Slow Cooker Recipes” and you can buy it here: http://goo.gl/MOKvL4

The recipe I tried is “Beef Roast with Dark Rum Sauce” on page 70.

Be sure to check out episode 21, which is a bit more info and how-to on the Kale & Brussels Sprouts Salad I made!
