Review - New Wood-Fire Grill Menu

Dan and I went to an Outback media dinner recently to try their new wood-fire grill items and new menu items. We already love Outback, so we were very interested to see what the new offerings were. Our tasting menu included the new Wood-Fire Grilled Outback Special, Wood-Fire Grilled Baby Back Ribs, Hearts of Gold Mahi, as well as Wood-Fire Grilled Pork Chops, Prime Rib, and Ribeye. We were impressed to learn that everything at Outback is made from scratch, including mashed potatoes which they whip fresh all day, and their chocolate sauce and Bloomin Onions. The story behind Bloomin Onions is very interesting, but I will save that for another day.

Everything we tried was perfectly cooked and delicious, and we really loved the new seasonings and wood-fire grilled taste. Dan’s favorite dishes were the succulent Prime Rib, which was perfectly cooked, and the Wood-Fire Grilled Ribeye, which was juicy and extremely flavorful. I loved the Outback Special Signature Steaks, both classic and wood-fire grilled flavors. For dessert, we tried Classic Cheesecake and Carrot Cake, and got a very special treat, a sample of the new and amazingly delicious Chocolate Waffle, which is also made from scratch. Outback’s d├ęcor has also been changed with an updated and very classy look. We had a wonderful time, and now we like Outback even more after trying the new options.

Here is some more information about the new wood-fire grill technique, and some photos of the exquisite new offerings -

The wood-fire grill preparation is now available for Outback’s lineup of signature steaks, chicken and seafood dishes. The new wood-fire grill steaks are lightly seasoned and flame-grilled over oak wood which delivers an unmistakable, delicious outdoor grill flavor. Senior VP John Li says that “The new wood-fire grill option for steak is a perfect addition to Outback’s already renowned seasoned and seared grilling method; it’s designed specifically to give that smoky flavor you can only find by grilling over natural oak wood. We’re now able to let our customers choose exactly how they prefer their steak grilled and flavored.”

Loyal Outback fans, of course, still have the choice to order their steak prepared with Outback’s classic, Zagat® award-winning “seasoned and seared" grilling method - - seasoned with 17 savory spices and seared to seal in its juicy flavor. Regardless of the choice, each juicy, delicious steak is hand-selected, perfectly aged and hand-trimmed before being prepared and served.

Outback Steakhouse starts fresh every day to create the flavors that our mates crave. Best known for grilled steaks, chicken and seafood, Outback also offers a wide variety of crisp salads and freshly made soups and sides. New creations and grilled classics are made from scratch daily using only the highest quality ingredients sourced from around the world.
