  • ¾ cup red wine, divided

  • 7 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 1 ½ tablespoons kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch garlic salt

  • 1 (2 1/2 pound) rump roast

  • 1 tablespoon salted butter

  • 1 cup vegetable broth

  • 1 large Spanish onion, chopped

  • 1 large bunch fresh parsley, chopped

  • 5 medium carrots, halved

  • 5 stalks celery, cut into large chunks

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Whisk 1/4 cup wine, 3 tablespoons olive oil, kosher salt, Italian seasoning, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and garlic salt together in a bowl and pour into a resealable plastic bag. Add rump roast, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight.

  2. Remove roast from the refrigerator. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear roast in hot skillet, turning to brown all sides, about 10 minutes.

  3. Place roast in a slow cooker with vegetable broth, remaining 1/2 cup red wine, onion, parsley, carrots, celery, remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and cook on Low heat until roast is fall-apart tender, 9 to 10 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
