1. Take rump roast out of the fridge 2 hours before starting and let it come to room temperature.

3. Preheat the oven to 275 F.

4. Melt salted butter over med-high heat in oven-safe skillet, and sear all sides of beef for 15 mins. to brown. Remove roast to a plate, and de-glaze the pan with beef broth and dry red wine.
6. Re-place beef in the pan with onion slices and rosemary sprigs, and roast in the oven for 12-15 mins. per pound of meat (48 minutes to 1 hour for 4 pounds) until internal temp. rises to 115F.

7. Place the roast on a cutting board, tent loosely with foil, and let it rest for about 20 mins. Serve when internal temp. reaches 130F for med-rare, or 125F for rare.
