Apparently this is an age-old recipe that hails from the cowboy days when they trekked to tend cattle. Whether it’s true or not, we don’t know … but if it is, then seriously, do you really think those boys minced their beef? Of course not! They apparently used big chunks of meat that they cooked until tender (as we do in this recipe) and then flaked or sliced the meat into bite-sized pieces. But if you cannot bring yourself to pay the price for rump for a recipe like this one, then use minced beef.
