Rump Steak, like all prime cuts of beef should come from grass fed animals, ideally rare and heritage type breeds which have been properly hung at a constant temperature a degree or two above freezing to allow it to slowly mature, the fibres to break down and the wonderful distinctive flavour to develop. Lean, but with a hint of fine marbling, this is one of the most flavoursome steaks, perfect for the pan or the BBQ. Like all our steaks, from slowly grown grass-fed cattle, and matured slowly in our dry-ageing fridges.
A properly hung Rump Steak can be eaten at almost any thickness, depending on the preference of the person eating. Most experts, self-acclaimed or otherwise would insist that the colour of the raw Rump Steak should be relatively dark when compared to either a poorly hung piece of steak or one which has just been cut. It is a perfect steak to cook rare inside. The Rump Steak should have decent covering of fat over the original joint without which it will not have the characteristic, flavour enhancing marbling.
