  • 3-5 pounds rolled rump roast rump roasts are hard to find now. Flank is the next best thing.
  • 1 tablespoon Canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons good olive oil California olive oil is gluten-free
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • ground peppercorn to taste
  • 1-2 cups vegetable, turkey, or beef broth I freeze my turkey stock over the holidays to use for dishes like this in January. Fresh stock makes this recipe!
  • 2 medium yellow onions sliced thinly
  • 2 garlic cloves, large minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce Lea & Perrins is labeled gluten-free
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3-4 tablespoons gluten-free soy sauce San-J Tamari is gluten-free
  • crushed red pepper flakes (for seasoning) Badia is Certified Gluten-Free
  • 2-3 packs gluten-free ramen noodles Millet & Brown Rice Ramen by Lotus Foods is gluten-free
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets


  • Bring rump roast to room temperature, add a thin layer of canola oil (add remaining oil into slow cooker later) to roast and salt and pepper.
  • Sear both sides of roast in skillet for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • When finished, add meat to slow cooker set to low.
  • Add all ingredients to crockpot, except ramen, broccoli.
  • Cover slow cooker with lid, then let cook on low for approximately 6-8 hours. Be mindful not to let the meat dry out. My rump roast was tender and finished at 6 hours, as my crockpot gets really hot. 8 hours was not needed for me at all, but each crock pot heats differently.
  • When meat is ready to serve, place broccoli florets in a large skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium heat. Stir and coat broccoli, and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for approximately 3-4 minutes, until broccoli is a beautiful green.
  • While cooking broccoli, you can boil a pot and cook ramen as well. Follow directions on ramen package to cook. In general, ramen takes about 3  minutes or so to cook a packet. Do not use the seasoning packet! Toss it.
  • While everything is hot, plate by spooning a portion of meat with sauce into a bowl, along with ramen noodles and broccoli. Add more pepper flakes and coat noodles and broccoli with meat sauce, then serve.


Note: You can add more ingredients as you wish, to up the flavor.
Times and temps may vary on stovetop and with slow cooker.
