Crock Pot Rump Roast

Rump roast. One of those cuts of meat that makes you scratch your head. I know how you feel and I learned a very valuable lesson early on in cooking. When in doubt on how to cook meat, use a crock pot, they fix everything. Well and you top everything with bacon. In my opinion, a crockpot is the most versatile and valuable tool in the kitchen. I believe in them so much, I spent 2 months making The Ultimate Guide to Crockpots. Enjoy!

Rump Roast in your Crockpot

The name rump roast just makes me laugh. When I started cooking, it actually intimidated me until I learned how to defeat the rump in the kitchen. In the UK, they call the rump roast a Silverside and I like that a lot better. So here are a couple of facts about the rump roast:

  • It comes from the bottom round, the rear leg of a cow
  • It’s a tough piece of meat and tastes best when roasted slowly until tender
  • The three best ways to cook rump roast: A crockpot, braised, or marinated

Did you see that tweet above this? The beef and pork industry changed 350 names of cuts of meat to be more appealing and sell more. Just in case you run to the store to buy a rump roast, it will probably be labeled Leg Sirloin now. You can actually use any tough cut of beef interchangeably with this recipe and get great results.

Crockpot / Slow Cooker

Every one always asks what my favorite crockpot is? I have used at least 5 different brands of slow cookers and crockpots and have finally landed on my favorite. I now own 4 of the same one and they never fail me.

My favorite all around crockpot is the Hamilton Beach Set ‘n’ forget Slow Cooker (6 quart).

I also have favorites of every size and even a Wifi model.

Lately, I have been using One tool to replace 5 different appliances in my house. Click here to see it.

  1. This really isn’t a recipe but perhaps a helpful note to others. I love fresh beets when they are available. For years I have struggled to get them cooked just right using my pressure cooker. The other day the light-bulb flashed a message–try the crock pot! Trim the stem end so that about two inches are left. Leave root just as it is. Do not peel. The night before put in crock pot (mine is a Slow Poke I received in the 70s!), add about an inch or two of water, set on low, and the next morning amazingly you will have beautiful, tender beets, ready to peel, slice and season any way you like. Enjoy!
