What is Ramp Steak
The steak rump is located at the back of the cow, It is lean muscle with low marble so it is not as soft as other beef chunks. Therefore, it is worth buying an old-fashioned (dry) portion, when making a steak from this portion. On the other hand, it is significantly cheaper than quarrel or almond. Steak Rump is also known as “sirloin” in the US. If you want to read more about this cut, Check out this site, For example.

How to make a steak ramp
Watch the video or scroll down for step-by-step instructions:
We can start with the sauce, It only takes a few minutes and if you make a nice batch, you can freeze it for later use. What sets this sauce apart is the addition of coffee which gives it a nice and interesting taste. This sauce goes well with any type of steak, not just with a steak ramp.
In a small saucepan, heat two tablespoons of olive oil and toss in a tablespoon of butter. Once the butter has melted, add one larger shallot cut into thin cubes. Fry for about 3 minutes, then add a clove of crushed or chopped garlic and fry for another 3 minutes.
advice: Remember we cook a sauce, do not bake any special cake, so feel free to browse the ingredients. A little more or less butter or shallots … this is not a problem at all.
Then come 3 to 4 tbsp Of ketchup, one tablespoon of honey and a tablespoon of balsamic or vinegar glaze. Coffee makes this sauce special, I added about half a cup of strong espresso.
advice: Balsamic glaze or vinegar can be quite strong, so do not add them all at once if you are making the sauce for the first time. If the sauce gets too sour, you can always add more sugar, just like I did.
Season the sauce with salt and pepper and give it flavor. Mine was too sour so I added a tablespoon of sugar and since it was too thick for my taste, I also added a little water. Cook the sauce for a few minutes while stirring so that it does not burn and we are quite done.
We can stop here and it will be just fine. But since I like sauces with a smooth texture, I used a hand blender to blend the shallots and garlic pieces. And that’s it, the sauce is ready.
advice: You can definitely add some herbs to the sauce, thyme, rosemary or Italian seasoning … everything will work just fine.
As I mentioned at the beginning, I use oven-baked simple potatoes as the side for our ramp steak today. These are yellow baby potatoes I cut in half. Olive oil, salt, pepper and Italian herbs are all the spices I use. Place them on baking paper, skin side down, and bake for an hour 200C or 400F for about 40 minutes Or until golden.
And now the star of the show, our adorable Rump Steak. The ones I use today are not that thick, just a little shy of an inch (2cm) or so, but it’s just fine for this quick preparation way.
Season both sides of the steak with olive oil, garlic powder and black pepper and rub with your hands the oil and spices into the meat. Do not use salt at this stage which will come later. Some chefs claim that adding salt at the end helps make the meat softer, so let’s try.
Heat some oil in a pan and start searing our ramp steak from the first side. I used olive oil, but feel free to use your favorite type. Give it about 3 minutes and reverse.
Now a “special” trick that I use for cheaper chunks to enhance the flavors. Spread half a teaspoon of Dijon mustard on the seared side And season it with salt now. At this point I also add dried Italian herbs.
Wait about 3 minutes and turn again. Season the other side of the rump steak with salt as well. Now lower the heat to medium and drop in a nice cube of butter. Let it melt, then kick the steak into it.
Give it a minute and invert the steak again and also mash the other side with butter. After both sides have been seared and then dripped with butter, the Rump steak is ready. To sum up: we seared each side for 3 minutes, then another 1-2 minutes for each side for the butter mass. That should be enough for a steak of this thickness.
As we all know, it is mandatory to rest the steak for a few minutes. I like to wrap it in foil to keep it warm and warm. Give it at least 5 minutes please and in the meantime let’s look at the potatoes.
Potatoes look good, Let’s take them out of the pan and get ready for our dinner.
But first of all the moment of truth. Let me unload the Rump Steak and cut into the beauty to see what it looks like. Sometimes it’s complicated to hit at the right time, but I think it came out great, I like the color. Our steak looks super juicy and tender.
Let’s flash the dish now. Steak goes into the center … potatoes on one side … and fried egg on the other. And let’s not forget the delicious sauce we made earlier. I like to add a lot.
And here we have it, A perfect steak dinner made from a cheaper surgeon It will not break your bank. Thank you for reading / watching and please come back to see my new recipes. See you next time.
