Rump cap roasted in salt crust, with Espinillar (typical Uruguayan liqueur) sauce and butiá fruit chutney garnished with fresh-herb risotto, confit cherry tomatoes, decorated with cheese and leak.
- Marinate the rump cup (250g – 0.55 lb) in Espinillar with some rosemary and pepper grains.
- Roast covered in cooking salt.
- Deglaze with the liqueur used in the marinade.

- Add salt and pepper and thicken with a pinch of cold butter.
Garnish with: fresh herb risotto (with butter, vegetable stock, onion and white wine); confit cherry tomatoes and decorate with processed cheese figures and chopped leak.
Beef rump cup: the balanced distribution of this cut’s fat cover makes it taste uniquely delicious when cooked.
