Handy Tips

Lamb rumps vary in size. We grilled rumps that weighed around 200g each. Coating lamb rump in a spice mixture adds flavour, but also acts as a seal to lock in meat juices during cooking.
To boost the carbohydrate and fibre content of this dish, serve with a side of steamed kumara, potato or wholemeal pasta.
