Beef Rump

1.5kg Beef rump Cap
5 cloves garlic
1 sprig of thyme
1 Bay leaf

Top Tip: Buy a thermometer. A must for cooking big joints of meat.

●    Preheat the oven to 110℃.
●    Place the rump onto a roasting tray and put in the oven for approximately 3 hours or until the internal temperature of the meat is around 48℃.
●    Remove the rump and increase the oven temperature to 230℃. Season the roast with plenty of salt and pepper and place the rump, fat cap down, into a hot pan, along with the garlic, thyme and bay leaf, and render down the fat properly.
●    Baste the rump with its own fat.
●    Place the rump back into the oven to roast and caramelize the outside of the meat for 10-15 minutes.  
●    Rest for 10 minutes and slice into thick pieces.

Roast Potatoes
1.5kg Agria potatoes
500g Duck fat

●    Preheat your oven to 200℃.
●    Place the duck fat on a large roasting tray and heat in the oven for 30 minute
●    Peel and chop the potatoes into pieces just a bit smaller than a golf ball.
●    Parboil them for 15 minutes in salted water.
●    Strain the potatoes and allow to stand in a colander for 5 minutes.
●    Ruffle the potatoes in the colander by tossing them around to fluff up the edges.
●    Remove the roasting tray from the oven and place on to a burner to get really hot
●    Carefully slide the fluffed potatoes into the duck fat.
●    Roast for at least an hour. The crispier the better, so don't be shy on the cooking.
