Outback Steakhouse is probably the most popular Australian-themed restaurant in the USA. But this is Wikipedia knowledge. I’ll give you some insider information. The Outback Steakhouse may be famous for its outstanding steaks on its menu, but they also have other great recipes that you can recreate at home. Some are very famous, while some are underrated. Today, I am here to tell you about both.
Some of the side dishes of the Outback Steakhouse are superstars like the Bloomin Onion. I mean, you’ll never have regular onion rings once you try the Bloomin Onion.
Others are delicious but mainly go unnoticed, like the Outback Steakhouse bread. We have all tasted the delicious sweet bread at the steakhouse, but it is underrated. To tell the truth, it is one of the best dinner bread I have ever had (yes, some bread go with breakfast and some bread go with dinner. Don’t come at me.)
As much as you’d like to, you can’t eat daily at the steakhouse. I know it’s tempting to eat the Bloomin Onion with the delicious sauce every day, but you can’t. The good news is that you can make both these items at your home easily.
These are the recipes that you can easily cook up in your kitchen. In fact, I have a whole list of Outback Steakhouse recipes right here with me.
With these recipes, you can make delicious Aussie-flavored dishes in your home. You can cook these dishes for family dinners or a get-together with friends, or just a solo movie date. These binge-worthy dishes only need a little of your time and labor. So, here is a list of Outback Steakhouse recipes that you can make at home.
What's In The Post
We cannot talk about Outback food without talking about their delicious Bloomin onion. To give you a history lesson, the Bloomin onion has been an Outback Steakhouse menu as long as the steakhouse itself (That is a long time). I am not giving you exact dates because that will make it boring. But it has always been a hit. There is a special yet simple technique to make the onion bloom.
Have you ever wondered how they make the petals of the onion? Just cut ¾ of the top of the onion and then just open up the petals. After that, the onion is breaded, battered, and deep-fried. Do these steps and your Bloomin onion will be ready. Trust me, you will never make onion rings the same way ever again.
The only part that differs between the bloomin onion recipe and the onion rings recipe is the part where you make the onion bloom. The recipe that follows after is pretty much the same. So, if you know how to make onion rings, making a bloomin onion should not be a problem.
The onion is dredged in seasoned flour and is dipped in a rich batter made with cornstarch, spices, and beer. So, you get a crispy and perfectly seasoned fried onion. Here is the complete recipe for Outback Steakhouse bloomin onion, in case you were looking for it.
What better companion for the Outback Steakhouse bloomin onion than the bloomin onion sauce itself. The blooming onion sauce is a delicious and creamy sauce with a spicy taste of horseradish. The horseradish makes it a bit spicy but goes with the fried spicy onion perfectly.
The bloomin onion sauce Is made with mayonnaise, ketchup, horseradish, spices, and seasoning. If you are wondering what the spices are, they are oregano, paprika, garlic powder, and a touch of cayenne pepper.
This is the ‘throw in a bowl and mix’ kind of recipe. Once you’ve mixed the mayonnaise with the ketchup, spices, and seasoning, add your horseradish to it and mix mix mix. Let the sauce chill for some time. Meanwhile, bloom and fry up your onion. Then, serve these perfect partners together. Want the proper measurements, ingredients, and steps of the recipe? Well, here they are as we’ve covered the full recipe of bloomin sauce on our blog.
Remember when I mentioned the Outback Steakhouse bread, which is underrated but perfect? Well, let’s talk more about it.
The Outback Steakhouse bread is soft, supple, and sweet. You might think of it as chocolate bread because it has cocoa powder. But I wouldn’t call it that. The unsweetened cocoa powder adds a rich taste, aroma, and color to the bread but doesn’t make t taste like chocolate.
The bread is made with two kinds of flour; whole wheat flour and bread flour. This makes the dough supple and elastic. Also, the bread is sweet as it has not one, not two but three sweeteners. The bread has honey, molasses, and brown sugar to give it a sweet taste. Like regular bread, it too has some activated yeast in it to give it the fluffy air pockets. There’s also a little canola oil in the dough to moisten the bread.
Once you’ve made the dough by mixing the flour, cocoa powder, sweeteners, oil, yeast, and a pinch of salt, let it rise. Then, bake it until you get crusty yet soft bread. The Outback Steakhouse bread recipe is simple, and this might just become your new favorite bread to make.
Mac and cheese is America’s ultimate comfort food. Outback Steakhouse takes it up a notch with their Mac ‘A’ Roo and cheese (did you get the Aussie pun in the name? Like Kang-A-Roo! Oh, you got it. Sorry). You can even make this mac and cheese without the mac. The Outback Steakhouse also serves penne or cellentani pasta instead of regular macaroni in their mac and cheese.
Also, the Outback Steakhouse mac and cheese recipe is a little different from the regular recipe. First, there is no roux-making in the recipe. Instead, you just mix cheese with some half-and-half and add the cooked pasta to it.
Of course, you add some seasoning for flavor, but that’s it. You need two kinds of cheese for the pasta, cheddar, and Velveeta. There’s nothing else you need. Making creamy and delicious mac and cheese could not get any easier.
