A beef roast cut from the round primal, above the back end of the hipbone. A rump roast that contains the bone is known as a standing rump roast. A boneless rump roast is sometimes sold as is or it may be rolled and tied before it is packaged and sold. Rump roasts are very flavorful, but they can be a bit tough if oven roasted. The results are much better if the meat is braised.
