Decorated with an Australian Outback theme, Outback Steakhouse is a great place for the whole family to eat.
Although beef and steak items make up a good portion of the menu, the concept offers a variety of chicken, ribs, seafood, and pasta dishes. Restaurants display Aboriginal art, boomerangs, Australian maps, and other Aussie themed decor.
The menu continues the Outback theme with items like Kookaburra Wings, Walkabout Soup, and Grilled Shrimp on the Barbie, among many others.
Every day they start out fresh, making every one of their Aussie soups, salad dressings and sauces from scratch.
As part of Operation Feeding Freedom, Outback Steakhouse has been involved in feeding our military troops stationed in Afghanistan. Over a number of trips, they have fed our brave American, Canadian and British soldiers involved in combat operations over there.
The Operation Feeding Freedom menu featured signature dishes such as the Outback Bloomin' Onion, Bonefish Bang Bang Shrimp, and Fleming's Calamari. Also served were thick and juicy steaks, potatoes, Carrabba's signature pastas, Bonefish Longfin Tilapia with Lobster Thermidor Sauce and Roy's Beef Short Ribs.

--Outback Steakhouse Steak Marinade--
1-2 pounds of steak - Sirloin, T-bone or rib steak
c. beer or ale
2 t. brown sugar
1/2 t. seasoned salt
1/4 t. each- black pepper and MSG
Let the steak marinate in the beer for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
Mix the dry ingredients together well.
After marinating, sprinkle the dry mix over the steak. Rub it all over the steak. Let the steak sit in the refrigerator another thirty minutes.
Put a pat of butter on the grill. When it's very hot, add the steak. Cook to desired doneness.
Grilling tip: When grilling steaks, they will be much better if you let them come to room temperature first before grilling.
--Outback Steakhouse Sauteed Mushrooms--
1/2 c. chopped onions
3 T. butter or olive oil
1 can beef broth
32 oz jar button whole mushrooms, or fresh mushrooms
1/3 cup red wine.

Add beef broth and onions ito a saucepan. Simmer on low about 15 minutes.
Add mushrooms with juice from jar and wine. Simmer additional 15 minutes.
--Outback Steakhouse Aussie Fries--
1 lb. bag of Frozen French Fries
1 Cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
6 pieces of Bacon, cooked
24 Fl. Oz. Peanut Oil
Heat oil to 350 degrees. If you do not have a thermostat, make sure the oil is hot enough, so that when you set a french fry in there it will cook immediately. If the french fry sinks to the bottom, and barely bubbles, it is not hot enough.
Fry the potatoes in small batches, they are done when they are golden brown, and float to the top of the skillet. Be sure to drain the potatoes on paper towels. You can keep them warm in the oven while the other fries are done.
When all french fries are done cooking, and drained place them onto a platter.
Salt the french fries if you like, and sprinkle on cheese and cooked bacon. Pop these back into a warm oven until the cheese begins to melt.
