Outback Steakhouse™

By : | 43 Comments | On : July 29, 2008 | Category : Tips & Help

When you walk into an Outback Steakhouse™, you’ll find boomarangs on the wall, stuffed crocodiles, didgeridoos and maps of Australia. You’ll also find menu items named after cities in Australia. Does it taste like Australian food? I have no idea. I’ve never been to Australia.

Outback Steakhouse™ really made a name for itself with their “Bloomin’ Onion”. It’s rare for restaurant recipes to actually have a product on late night TV, but that’s what happened with the Bloomin’ Onion. You could order a special tool to make your onions “bloom” as well.


Alice Springs Chicken
Grilled chicken breast topped with bacon, honey mustard sauce, sautéed mushrooms, Monterey Jack and Cheddar. Normally served with Aussie Chips.

Bloomin’ Onion
This is what put Outback Steakhouse™ on the map. You might want to buy a special tool to cut these just right.

Chopped Blue Cheese Salad
This Outback salad is an amazing mix of sweet candied pecans, creamy blue cheese, soft butter lettuce along with red leaf and iceberg. A very simple restaurant recipe you can make often.

Ranch Dressing
This is a rich and creamy dressing that starts with Hidden Valley Ranch powder dressing mix. You can change it up a bit if you like your dressing a little on the spicy side.

Potato Soup
I have scoured all of my resources and found a very close, if not exact, copy of the Outback Steakhouse potato soup recipe.  This comes straight from one of the former cooks at Outback.

Gold Coast Coconut Shrimp
Tender crispy shrimp in a beer batter with a light flaky coconut coating on the outside.  Delicious with the tangy tart flavors that come in the Creole marmalade.

Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie
Slightly seasoned and delicately grilled shrimp served with their signature remoulade sauce.  This is one of the most popular appetizers at Outback Steakhouse.

Remoulade Sauce
A rich and creamy sauce with just enough zip from the horseradish. Serve this with the Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie or their Pan Seared Lump Crab Cakes.

Bushman Bread
This is a fantastic dark bread with a delicious crunchy crust.  Server it warm from the oven and delight your guests.

The way the Outback™ describes it is like this: “Down under frozen wonder with peaches, DeKuyper Peachtree Schnapps, champagne, Smirnoff Vodka and secret mixers.”
