Rump Roast

Fat cap side up or down?

  1. Depends on how you're cooking it. I assume you are searing it first, so I would sear it fat side down and keep the fat towards the heat source. This will allow the fat will render out and leave a nice crispy surface that's full of flavor.

      Searing is done, ready for oven. Assuming fat cap on top while in oven...?
