This is one of my adopted recipes. This is suitable for any size roast just adjust the veggies for amount you want to serve. I didn't have new potatoes, I just halved regular Yukon God potatoes. I used an Oven Bag for this and roasted to 140°F and it came out nice and tender.

- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1 (1 -14 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1⁄2 cup water

This is very tasty. I would have preferred the gravy a little less tomato-y. Maybe 1/2 tomato sauce and 1/2 beef broth. That said, the meat came out tender, moist and med done @ 1hr 45 mins (3 lb roast). I bought a pkg of 2 oven bags on an impulse at least two yrs ago and when I was looking for a rump roast recipe this morning and came across it was a "hot damn" moment and I opened the pkg. So glad that I found this and I'll be using it again.
This is wonderful. I've always used an oven bag for rump roast, but the tomato gravy was a nice change. Didn't have tomato sauce, so I used 1 can of condensed tomato soup. Definitely a keeper!
I had to make a couple of changes due to lack of some items. I used a small can of tomato puree and diluted it with water to make the 14 oz. I didn't put the potatoes in the pan as I was making mashed taters. I also didn't have an oven bag, so I just covered the pan tightly with a layer of damp greaseproof paper and tin foil. The meat was delicious and tender. Cooked it for 3 hours at 160C/325F. Definitely a keeper!
