One of the classic steaks; grass-fed beef rump steaks are most flavoursome. Expertly butchered from native breed cattle matured and fattened up in The Dales, we dry-age beef rump steaks on the bone for >28 days in our Himalayan salt chamber.
The ageing process allows the natural enzymes to tenderise the muscle whilst the moisture loss concentrates the intensity of the flavour; the result is a deeply-savoury beef rump steak worthy of any table.
Chef Valentine Warner says "that despite its noticeable lack of fat, the rump steak can nonetheless be a tender and juicy piece of meat. However such a lack of fat does demand that beef rump steak be cooked carefully and is best served medium-rare as more brutal treatments will leave it tough. Less expensive than other prime steaks it will deliver joy with affordability.
Sliced and flash fried with bacon, onions and chipotle chilli it's delicious in a bun. Alternatively a favourite restaurant in Mexico City beats it out thin and fried it hard once seasoned with cumin and oregano. It is combined with fried, browned cheese (Gouda or grated Mozzarella are perfect) in a larger corn tortilla and is then generously daubed with a charred green tomato salsa and a dark ancho salsa. Epic, the queues go round the block!
Alternatively cook it whole and then thinly slice it before combining in a wonderfully sour and hot Thai beef salad.
Beef rump steak is delicious raw in a tartare but maybe try and more Mexican leaning that while still including the egg yolk and Worcestershire sauce is brilliant with a little, cumin, very finely chopped coriander, jalapeño and red onion, salt and sunflower oil and then sharpened and with lime juice and salt. Eat with tostadas (corn, tortillas, fried to crisp).
Brined heavily with brown sugar and salt, then rolled in crushed black pepper and coriander seeds and heavily smoked its a great chew for fishing trips.
For demanding physical or cold days or perhaps the opposite as treatment for a sore whisky addled head and fried for breakfast to be crowned with and a runny fried egg and gravy is the breakfast of champions."
