What Ingredients Will You Need To Make Outback Steakhouse Bloomin Onion Sauce?

  • Horseradish- Horseradish is a root vegetable and has no resemblance or relationship with a horse whatsoever (just making it clear). It has a strong spicy taste, so maybe don’t go overboard with it. 
  • Mayonnaise- Mayonnaise makes the sauce creamy and if you add mayo to the horse-radish, it neighs (sorry, I tried so hard not to make this joke. I am a weak mortal).
  • Ketchup- Ketchup adds a tang to the sauce and also gives it an orange color. 
  • Spices (Paprika, Garlic Powder, Dried Oregano, and Cayenne Pepper)- The sauce needs to be spicy to keep up the taste of the horseradish. These spices make the sauce a little bit hot and give a great aroma and overall flavor. 
  • Seasoning (Ground Black Pepper and Salt)- No matter what you add, if you don’t add seasoning, it’ll all go to waste.

This two-step recipe just involved adding and mixing. So, take a large bowl and add the shredded horseradish to it. Also, add mayonnaise and ketchup to it.

The sauce needs to chill before you can serve it. So, place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, you know, for chilling purposes (No, it can’t watch Netflix!). After that, serve your bloomin onion sauce with your delicious bloomin onion or anything you want. It’s your home; nobody can tell you what you can and can’t serve you sauce with.
