Is rump a good steak?
So even though rump steak won’t be quite as tender as NZ sirloin, it will more than make up for it with a deep, mineral savouriness. And what’s more, it’s half the price. Buy a well-aged piece of meat and cook it medium or medium-rare rather than full-on rare which, can be a little chewy.
