    TommyGato's Note:

    If you like seeing some "red" in your meat, this recipe is for you! Since the goal is to sear the natural juices inside the roast, you'll get very little in the pan. Gravy lovers might want a can of beef broth or packaged mix. You'll love the aroma as it cooks and how the caramelized onion flavors the juice!

      Man, what a rump roast!! I made this last night for my family and it was EXCELLENT. I substituted beef broth for the water, heating it up with some onions, and it was fabulous. I rubbed the meat with seasoning salt, black pepper and garlic powder after oiling it.

      This was absolutely fantastic -- juicy, perfect roast. I roasted it 10 minutes at 500 degrees, then only about 40 minutes more at 350 for a slightly less than 3 lb roast. I appreciate the suggestion to use a thermometer! I couldn't believe this cut came out so tender in so little time. I was afraid when searching for recipes that I'd have to settle for "pot roast" but really wanted it rarer for au jus sandwiches. Thanks so much!!!
