In South Africa, rump is used to describe the sirloin of a lamb, the tender strip of flesh connecting the leg to the loin. "While legs of lamb are more traditional at a braai," says Cape Town butcher Andy Fenner, "think of it like a large steak, with one lean side and one that's nice and fatty. The rump is more manageable, and just as tasty." Fenner scores the fatty side in a crosshatch pattern so the seasonings can penetrate deep into the meat. "Season it for 3 to 5 hours before cooking to draw the moisture out and get a good sear," he says. Then pair it with a fresh, acidic salsa verde.
