The Fastest Cooking Method For Rump Roast
Rump roast is a tasty and inexpensive cut that can feed a crowd, and if you have an electric pressure cooker (such as an Instant Pot) on hand, you can prepare it in no time at all.
Rump roast is a lean cut, which means it can dry out if cooked too quickly at a high temperature. A pressure cooker works fast, but has insurance against drying out the meat.
An electric pressure cooker creates a relatively-low temperature environment for the meat, and the mechanism of the pressure helps to keep food from overcooking.
A sturdy pot like a Dutch oven can also braise your rump roast, but it’ll take about two and a half hours, compared to the one hour for an electric pressure cooker.
To prepare rump roast in a Dutch oven, sear it, add aromatics, and cover it in stock, wine, beer, or another liquid before putting the pot into a 300-degree Fahrenheit oven.
A Crock Pot is the next best thing for preparing a rump roast, allowing you to cook the meat in one vessel over low heat, but the cooking time will take several hours.
