Outback Steak Marinade Recipe

This tastes just like the Outback Steakhouse Steak Marinade. Delicious!

Outback Steakhouse Steak Marinade Recipe- Makes enough for 1-2 pounds of 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.

Paul W. on March 19, 2012:

As an American I LOVE a good rare steak. But I'm living in the Philippines and their pork and beef sold in all stores taste like they died of old age they are so tough. I need a miracle recipe that can tenderize this meat.

frank on February 15, 2012:

rack of lamb is out of sight - best ive had anywhere aroung here - five chops - small but cooked perfectly - the sauce great also - wife had prime rib - same result -reasonable price - 2 for 1 drinks - my first time there, but not my last

don on February 15, 2012:

sun cooking on February 03, 2012:

hi, thanks for an interesting article! solar cooking is an excellent way to cook food without wasting fuel or heating up your kitchen. we especially like dehydrating fruit, bananas and mangoes turn out great!!

sammykkkk on November 12, 2011:

Lone star steak houses closed down where i live :( they were my all time favourite restaurants. If you could find a recipe for the pork ribs, i would be for ever in your debt!

Queensland chicken salad recipe

bob on May 16, 2011:

thanks for the good recipes

xavier82 on April 19, 2011:

I just wanted to say that I used to work for outback and they do not marinate their steaks. It is a dry rub of herbs and peppers (17 spices of which 14 of them are different kinds of peppers). I'm sure the marinade on here is delicious, I just wanted to point out that the steaks are not marinated.

Madi on February 06, 2011:

Where is the creamy onion soup recipe?

steph t on December 22, 2010:

Nothing like the real thing......not even close.....go to outback for the real thing

jo on November 30, 2010:

just an fyi outback does not use a marinade on any steaks except the teriaki sirloin!

lawyerssydney on November 14, 2010:

Wow that is really enticing...

MyMastiffPuppies on September 05, 2010:

Outback is one of our favorite restaurants and I am anxious to try these recipes out. When you have two kids with one of them being in college, its hard to find the extra time and money to make to Outback as often as we'd like so this is great! Thanks for the info.

Tamarajo on August 20, 2010:

thank you for posting this. I cant wait to try one.

Karlapooh on June 19, 2010:

I would love the receipe for Outbacks Creamy ginger-soy dipping sauce for the seared ahi tuna? Help, please, thanks!

Holle Abee from Georgia on April 17, 2010:

Awesome, awesome info!

Iain on March 17, 2010:

I think the porktenderloin has a gastrique on it. 1 part vinegar (use a nice one) 2 parts sugar and 2 parts fruit juice or puree. Reduce to a syrup/glaze. The trick would be the right fruit and/or vinegar.

Chandler on February 22, 2010:

Holy! My god this is awesome I think that I will enjoy this

Springboard from Wisconsin on February 18, 2010:

Love Outback, and love the recipes. The steaks are great, but the Alice's Spring Chicken is one my wife enjoys. If I can make it at home...voila! :) Thanks.

Keith on January 19, 2010:

I would love to find a recipe for the Griller rice. Anyone know what's going on in that dish?

Msj904 @ Bloomin onion recipe on December 18, 2009:

Vizey on September 07, 2009:

Thanks for sharing recipes. I would like to know more recipes from you. I am going to try first recipe. Are Australian recipes different from Europe?

Pissed off on May 24, 2009:

outback discontinued those crab cakes and replaced em with shrimp filled with crab. i've searched all over and theres no recipe of them on the internet. if anybody has the recipe please post it. i need it. i might kill myself if i dont taste those cakes again

Outback Steakhouse Coupons on April 30, 2009:

I love the blooming onion recipe! Thanks!

Biya on March 29, 2009:

The bloomin onion recipe isn't anywhere correct. And the sauce portion recipe makes enough to feed a small country. After getting ti all ready, and cooking it, I was EXTREMEMLY dissappointed!

earnestshub from Melbourne Australia on February 16, 2009:

We don't use shrimp we use prawns in Australia despite the Paul Hogan ad.

Arabela on January 20, 2009:

I sure would like the receipe for the sauce used on the pork tenderloin. I believe it has apricots in it. I can't seem to find it. MiMi

RYAN on November 30, 2008:

i work for Outback. And none of those are even remotely close. Try again.

Mary on October 16, 2008:

Does anyone know what ingredients or spices they put in the steamed mixed vegetables? They are delicious!

Emily on October 13, 2008:

Does anyone have the "Asian Chopped Salad" recipe for the dressing?

Dan on October 02, 2008:

Yesss My favorite outback meal is the bloomin onion, ribs and a cold frosted Heiniken. Unfortunately that is a meal you can afford to eat once a year, if you'd like to stay healthy (LOL)

Angela Harris (author) from Around the USA on May 12, 2008:

mckteach27, I haven't had the green beans at Outback. I'll have to try them next time and see if I can figure out a copycat recipe.Robertgulden, I also am a fan of food. ;)Chris, I'm glad you enjoyed the copycat Outback recipes.firead, yeah, the Bush bread is really good at the Outback.Decrescendo, I'm hoping to add some more Outback recipes in a few days. Thanks for stopping by.

Frank from Montana on April 08, 2008:

I like the Bush Bread

Chris Miller on March 31, 2008:

Excellent Recipe, Everything Turned out great!Thanks

robertgulden on March 29, 2008:

Great Hub. I am a big fan of food.

mckteach27 on March 19, 2008:

I loved the green beans served with the prime rib last time I was there. Does anyone have any ideas what they did to them? This site doesn't seem to have that recipe (maybe everyone thinks it's too simple or obvious)

Sydney Hotels on March 12, 2008:

As an Aussie who went to an Outback Steakhouse when I was holidaying in Florida last year, I HAVE to tell ya that it would be laughed out of business in Australia.

It's SOOOO corny, cliched and hokey that it's laughable...

HOWEVER, I was willing to ignore that if the food was good, but it was average at best. Hooters was MUCH better (their wings rock!) :-)

We actually used to have a restaurant chain in Oz back in the 90s called the Lone Star Steak houses, which (I now realise) was Outback steakhouse done in a Texas theme.

Their food was great, compared to what we had in the Outback. Quite similar items on the menu, but with different names, but the folks in florida must have been having an off day when we went for dinner.

If you REALLY want to enjoy Aussie food, come to Australia & you'll be (probably) majorly surprised to find that we're a big mixing pot of cultures, so there's not too many food items that you could say are uniquely Australian these days.

Anyway, great Hub & thanks for the recipes, they do look good.

James :-)

Angela Harris (author) from Around the USA on February 27, 2008:

Shadow, I don't know why you can't access the Bloomin Onion recipe. I had no problem with the link at all.
