Rump Steak is a steak cut that includes portions of the sirloin and the flat muscle from the bottom round. It contains moderate amounts of fat and is fairly tender.

Rump Steak is sometimes sold as Swiss Steak, a name which may have come from “Swissing”, a British term for running cloth through rollers for smoothing. To make Swiss Steak, the meat is pounded thin, floured, and then braised in a tomato-and-onion mixture.

Other names: Manhattan steak, Rumsteak (french), Swiss Steak.
