Outback Steakhouse, Inc. runs one of the largest casual steakhouse chains in the United States, Outback Steakhouse. The chain consists of more than 600 Australian-themed restaurants in 47 states and several countries. The dinner-only restaurants serve moderately priced entrees such as seasoned steaks, prime rib, chicken, seafood, and pasta. The chain's signature, however, is an appetizer, the 'Bloomin' Onion.' The company also runs the Carrabba's Italian Grill chain, which includes about 70 dinner-only restaurants offering moderately priced Italian cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Outback Steakhouse, Inc. is also involved in two emerging restaurant chains: an upscale steakhouse called Fleming's Prime Steakhouse and Wine Bar, and another upscale chain called Roy's Restaurants, which features 'east-west' cuisine and was founded by celebrated chef Roy Yamaguchi.




French Onion Soup

Outback Steakhouse Copycat Recipe

2 quarts water
8 cubes beef bouillon, crumbled
2 large onions, quartered and sliced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese

In a large, heavy pot over medium heat, bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Stir in bouillon cubes and let boil 10 minutes, until dissolved. Place onions in boiling water, reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes. Stir in salt and pepper and simmer 30 minutes more. Stir the flour into 1/2 cup cold water to make a paste. Gently whisk this mixture into the simmering soup, being careful not to break the onions. Simmer 30 minutes more. Stir in cream and cheese until cheese is melted and mixture is thoroughly heated. Thin with water if necessary. Serve hot, garnished with croutons, if desired.


  1. Outback uses provolone not colby-monterey jack

  2. Do you do anything special with the bread that floats in the center? Is it toasted? Is it a huge crouton?

  3. I'm going to try your French Onion soup recipe - it looks delicious! I still have to do some poking around to see what other recipe goodness you've posted :)

  4. Just an FYI this is not French onion soup
