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.




Aussie Fries Recipe

Here is a restaurant copycat recipe for Outback Steakhouse Aussie Fries.  These are loaded with calories so I've made a lighter and healthier version.  Read on to find out how to make this dish at home in your own kitchen.

There are basically three ingredients in this dish.
  • Potatoes
  • Cheese
  • Bacon
Outback Steakhouse fries their potatoes in oil, then plops on cheese and bacon.
When I make my version, I use frozen steak fries which I bake in the oven according to package directions. I also use turkey bacon and lowfat yellow cheese (Colby or American).
Once the fries have cooked completely, just add the cheese and crumble on the cooked bacon. Return to the oven to melt the cheese.
To lower the calorie intake even more, serve this as a side dish instead of eating the whole darn plate.  Have a big bowl of turkey chili and a small dish of the cheese fries.

Spicy Ranch Dressing

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp white horseradish sauce
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and mix well


  1. These look so good! I recently went to this Los Angeles steak house and was so impressed with their food and these fries look very similar. Can't wait to try this recipe.

  2. Thank you for the awesome recipes! My friend and I are trying to find a recipe like our favorite meal at the Black Steer Charhouse. It is so good! I hope we can find it soon!

  3. Thanks for the recipe. I've been crazing aussie fries for along time. Especially because they go perfectly with my new steak recipe. Can't wait to start grilling this summer.
