What is Bottom Round Rump Roast

A bottom round rump roast is a type of cut of meat that comes from the cow’s hindquarters. It is often sold in both whole and half portions, with the latter being most common. Bottom round is typically roasted, but it can also be braised or used to make corned beef.
