RUMP ROAST VS CHUCK ROAST
The rump roast and chuck roast are both tougher cuts of meat because they are muscles that the cow actively uses. They are full of connective tissue and collagen which makes them less tender. Of the two cuts, the rump roast is a little more tender than the chuck roast.
The rump roast is from the booty area aka RUMP area whereas the chuck is from the shoulder area. Both of these cuts have good flavor because they are from a more exercised area of the cow.
