Here in Portugal & Spain we use barbacoa powder. It is a dried barbecue powder and makes beef taste amazing.
The beef rump cap we used weighed 880g and was chopped into 4 similar sizes. The 2 smaller end pieces was just over 7oz and the bigger pieces were just over 8oz.
The slices of butter were the same size as the little piece of butter you have when you eat garlic butter steak in a restaurant. You’re welcome to increase/decrease the size of butter.
The temperature and time resulted in medium beef rump cap.
