Tender Rump Roast

Tender rump roast is a perfect recipe for a Sunday family lunch without having to spend much. It is not an expensive cut of meat, and the cuts from this part of muscle tend to be very tender if cooked properly. The most important part is to sear the meat at high temperatures for a few minutes.
