About Outback Steakhouse (from Wikipedia)
All meat is heavily seasoned; there is a 17 spice blend for the steaks themselves. Outback bills its food as “full flavor”. It fries its food in beef tallow, and uses real butter and heavy cream in many dishes. Burgers are ground from beef tenderloin. Menus are highly regionalized. Crawfish appear in some dishes in Southern American locations, as do sweet potatoes. Eastern locations often feature Maine Lobster tails, while western locations frequently serve Alaskan King Crab legs and cakes.
Outback’s bar selections are highly regionalized. Outback serves Foster’s Lager; an Australian brand of beer exported around the world. Other Australian beers often served include: Toohey’s New, Boag’s, and Coopers Premium Lager, Sparkling Ale, and Pale Ale. Wine selections vary, but often include Australian wineries Yellow Tail, Lindeman’s, and Rosemount.
Although a number of menu items are grilled, steaks are prepared on a griddle using butter as a heat transfer medium. Because they are cooked solely by conduction, their surfaces are cooked much more rapidly than their centers, and Outback follows a standard meat temperature (rarity) scale.
The Bloomin’ Onion is a signature Outback item. It is a one pound onion cut to ‘bloom’ open, breaded, deep-fried and served with mayonnaise-horseradish sauce. Other restaurants offer items similar to the Bloomin’ Onion, as in Chili’s Awesome Blossom (discontinued) and Lone Star Steakhouse & Saloon’s Texas Rose.
