Lazy Coworker Rump Roast

Prep Time


Cook Time




In this recipe, the focus is the under-used and pre-tenderized cut of meat, often worn from hours of loafing, while on the clock. Slow cooking the flesh brings out a rich flavor, and the chili seasoning adds a zest of life, long since gone from the subject’s work ethic.

 This “recipe” is part of our tongue-in-cheek look at the eating habits displayed in the Netflix series, Santa Clarita Diet. This is purely spoof–do not attempt to make these at home!









  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
