    Outback Steaks


    Alright, I usually have my once a week cheat meal on Saturdays, and this week I am craving a really good steak . I was thinking of going to Outback for a steak, sweet potato, and salad. My question is, which of their steaks would be the best (i guess as far as protein/fat ratios go)? I would like to pummel the 22oz porterhouse they serve, but Im guessing the fat content would make it not worth it. Any suggestions?

    Well generally any steak with loin in it's cut name is lowest in fat.

    you should check out there website I think they have the breakdown on there menu and even some healthy eating suggestions.

    http://www.outbacksteakhouse.com/ourmenu/nutrition.asp

    most restaurants will do this and outback is one of the few that actually tries to suggest healthy options (other than just eating there stuff on w.w bread and so on)

    Damn, didn't even think to check their website

    This one looks good:

    "Victoria’s Filet
    Order with House Salad as above Jacket or Sweet Potato
    Steamed Vegetables without butter. Prepare without butter"

    Mmmmmmm...

    Having beef tenderloin myself tonight. Definately enjoy it man. You can see if they will clean it up as much as possible. But if it is a cheat meal the fat, even on the outside of the steak makes it so juicy and flavorful!

    Wow, great thread and thanks for the link!

    While it's not at the Outback, one thing I learned from an ex who was a waitress, is to order things that say "simmered in butter" or baked stuffed seafood in a butter sauce, to be cooked with white wine instead. Tastes almost the same with much less fat!

    If thats your cheat meal, I don't want to see your normal diet.
    Man, thats a typical meal for me, steak, sweet potato and salad.
    Not my idea of cheating at all

    def. a good idea on cooking it down in a white wine; whats even better is a mid-rare filet w/ a portabello mushroom and the mushroom sauce from it cooked down in a red wine. add a salad and your good to go. i work at copeland's and we do some damn good steaks, but we do a damn good job at adding butter/calories to almost every dish so we cooked up some really good alternative routes.

    Get that 22oz porterhouse dummy. It's a cheat meal.. you will be more satieted on that than anything there... If and when I go to Outback, I get that 22oz'er and a side of crab legs... and then I drink the butter that comes with it. I never noticed they had a sweet potato option.. thanks.

    Also, that's not even a cheat meal... steak? c'mon... that's a staple.

    Mmmm porterhouse/crab leg combo sounds pretty damn tempting, i dunno about drinking the butter though ! I haven't had a decent cheat meal in forever, my diet is so clean....drives my wife crazy!
