Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Sprinkle rump roast with garlic powder, dried oregano and black pepper. Cook roast in a shallow roasting pan for about 30 minutes per pound. Make sure the pan is uncovered. Allow roast to cool when it is done cooking and then slice into thin portions.

Add boiling water, beef bouillon cubes, dried oregano, dried thyme, black pepper, hot sauce, garlic and Worcestershire sauce to pan that had the roast. Let the gravy mixture simmer for 20 minutes. Season with salt if necessary. Add sliced beef, cover and allow it to marinate overnight. Reheat the next day. Place beef inside Italian sandwich rolls and serve.
