    Gone Fishin''s Note:

    DO NOT use Pyrex/glass pans for this recipe, because they are not meant to be used at such high temperatures. Please use a standard metal roasting pan. ........................................................................................................................... For as long as I can remember, my mother has been fixing the perfect rump roast. It is by far my favorite meal. Served with rice and gravy, I am one happy camper. I love mine rare. Lately I have been fixing one on Sunday, having my Sunday meal and then I have the rest to eat on all week long. Life doesn't get any better. One thing my mom used to always remind me was to take your meat out well before you are going to cook it so it gets to room temperature.

      Perfection! I took my 5 pound roast out of the fridge a good 2 hours prior to cooking and used about 7 or 8 cloves of garlic. After searing I added a splash of worcestershire, garlic salt and onion powder to 2 cups of water (my roasting pan is quite large). After the first hour I added some quartered yukon gold potatoes (plus a cup more water mixture) and continued to cook (and baste every 30 min) for a total of roughly 3 hours. Unreal flavor, it tasted like Prime Rib; no kidding! Thank you Gone Fishin' for sharing your mom's truly perfect "Perfect Rump Roast" recipe with the world!

      This is a wonderful recipe. I made a medium rare, succulent, delicious rump roast for Christmas Dinner yesterday. Rump roasts have always been a challenge for me - they won't ever be again. It took ~25 minutes per pound at 275 for medium rare. I used 1/2 red wine and 1/2 veggie bouillon instead of water. The drippings were the base for a delicious gravy. My family raved - THANKS!

      The roast prepared this way is great. The only real change I made was that I substituted a can of beef broth for the water. The wife, aka the boss, loved it and when the wife is happy all is well with world. Thirty-seven years of marriage and five years of living in sin teaches a person these things. Have used quite a few recipies on this site and this is the first time I've commented on one. Gone Fishin, your mother must have been a great cook. Thanks!!
