BEEF RUMP CAP ROAST WITH PORTUGUESE MARINADE
This is one of my all time favourite marinated roasts. The savoury and tasty marinade is so fantastic I use it on beef, chicken and pork. I always increase the marinade recipe to have in my fridge. You won’t be disappointed….
- 1 Beef Rump Cap approx 1kg piece, also called Picanha off the Top Sirloin. (You can use other roast pieces if you like)
- Portuguese Marinade Recipe provided below.
- Mixed Dried Italian Herbs or any Mixed Dried Herbs or Dried Tuscan Herbs. Amount to use at your leisure.
- 3/4 Cup Fresh Chopped Parsley. (or more if desired)
- 1 Cup of Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Cup of Olive Oil
- 1/2 Cup of White Wine ( optional )
- 3 Garlic Cloves Crushed
- 1 Tablespoon of Paprika
- 1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar
- 1 Teaspoons of Chili Flakes ( add more if you like it hotter )
- 2 Teaspoons of Salt
- 2 Teaspoons of Ground Coriander
- 1 Teaspoon of Dried Oregano
- 1/2 Cup fresh chopped Parsley
Whisk or blend (my preferred preparation) all ingredients until a thick paste is formed. If the marinade is not thick enough then add more Paprika to thicken.
- Make cuts into the Rump Cap so that marinade can infuse the beef. On both sides.
- Smother Rump Cap with marinade and sprinkle with mixed herbs on each side.
- Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
- Cover with glad wrap in a dish and let marinade for a minimum over night.
- Lightly grease a baking tray with cooking oil. Add a little water enough to cover the base of the baking dish.
- Preheat oven at 180° for a few minutes.
- Roast for 60 minutes for a rare cooked roast. Add 15 minutes for medium rare roast.
Serve with a nice crisp salad or cooked vegetable and mashed potatoes.
It doesn’t matter if you use more paprika as the taste will not be over powering. Just a great tasty crust will be formed. I cook mine in my Turbo Convection Oven but turn it over approximately half way through cooking and then turn back and finish off the crusty top. Try it with a butterfly whole chicken on the grill. I love it…
