Outback Steakhouse Bloomin Onion!

Outback Steakhouse Bloomin Onion!

If you have ever been to the Outback Steakhouse then you have probably seen the very hard to miss bloomin onion appetizer.
This is a favorite at the restaurant and it sells like hot cakes. I came across a photo on facebook and was determined to find a home recipe. The real key to making this good is having a great dipping sauce recipe. I think I found it!
Take a look at the recipe here…



1/3 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons garlic, minced
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
24 ounces beer
4 vidalia onions (I use walla wallas here in Calgary)

Seasoned flour

2 cups flour
4 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

Creamy Chili sauce

1 pint mayonnaise
1 pint sour cream
1/2 cup tomato chili sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Outback Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons ketchup
2 teaspoons creamed horseradish
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1 dash black pepper
1 dash cayenne


1 ---------Alrighty, for the seasoned flour-----------.
2 combine flour, paprika, garlic powder, pepper and cayenne-mix well.
3 --------Creamy chili sauce--------.
4 combine mayo, sour cream, chili sauce and cayenne-mix well.
5 --------Dipping sauce----------.
6 Blend everything together well and let sit for 2 hours-refidgerated- or overnight.
7 --------And for the batter---------.
8 Mix cornstarch, flour and seasonings until well blended.
9 Add beer and mix well.
10 Cut about 3/4 inch off top of onion and peel.
11 Cut into onion 12-16 vertical wedges but do not cut through bottom root end.
12 Remove about 1 inch of petals from center of onion (You can place the cut onions in cold water for a few hours to help "open" them up -- just make sure that you drain them well).
13 Dip in seasoned flour and gently shake to remove excess.
14 Separate peatls to coat thoroughly with batter.
15 Gently place in a fryer basket and deep fry at 375-400 for 1 1/2 minutes.
16 Turn over and fry 1 1/2 minutes more or until golden brown.
17 Drain on paper towels.
18 Place onion upright in a shallow bowl and remove center core with a circular cutter or apple corer.
19 Serve hot with chili sauce and dipping sauce.
