A great all-rounder, rump steak is a little firmer in texture than other steaks such as rib eye or sirloin, adding character to the cut. It has a little less intramuscular fat and lends itself well to grilling or barbecuing, with less risk of charring than other steaks. We cut our rump steaks across the whole rump muscle, meaning you will get a little of the cap, canon and tail in each steak.
Remove the steak from its packaging, allow the meat to come to room temperature for 20 minutes, patting dry with kitchen paper.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan, over a high heat. Cook the steaks to your liking following the recommended times.
Rare: 1-2 minutes per side, rest for 6 minutes
Medium: 3 minutes per side, rest for 4 minutes
Well Done: 4-5 minutes per side, rest for 1 minute
Remove from the pan, cover with foil and leave to rest in a warm place for the recommended time.
