No trip to Outback Steakhouse is complete without an order or two of Bloomin Onions. And without the legendary Bloomin Onion dip sauce, the famous appetizer is little more than just a fancy-looking onion ring. The good news is that you probably already have most of the ingredients in your cupboard to whip up your own Outback Bloomin Onion sauce. The next time you make a homemade Bloomin Onion or just want to add a bit of zest to your next meal, try this quick and easy Outback Bloomin Onion sauce recipe.

The Outback Bloomin Onion Sauce’s Secret

The Bloomin Onion dip sauce packs a bit more of a kick than most other condiments, and that power comes from horseradish. While not everyone has a jar of horseradish hanging out in the back of the fridge, it would undoubtedly be a big mistake to leave it out of this recipe to save a trip to the store.

For those unfamiliar with horseradish, it is a root with a pungent and spicy taste similar to wasabi, and it is the ingredient that gives cocktail sauce its nose-clearing ability. Most supermarkets only stock horseradish pre-shredded and preserved in a jar, but depending on where you shop, you may also find it in its original root form. The fresh horseradish is particularly flavorful, but unless you plan on making a lot of Outback Bloomin Onion sauce, stick to the milder and longer-lasting jarred variety. If you choose to use fresh horseradish in the dipping sauce recipe, you may want to reduce the quantity of horseradish slightly.

It’s Delicious With More Than Just Onions

You can’t find a better dipping sauce for onions rings than this recipe, but Blooming Onion dip sauce is much more versatile than that. This sauce also works particularly well with any mild or sweet fried vegetables like fried mushrooms and sweet potato fries. Try it on breaded shrimp or even mozzarella sticks! Are you trying to get your family to eat a little healthier? Kids (and their parents) will gobble up carrot and celery sticks, and even broccoli when they can dip them in a bowl of Bloomin Onion sauce!

Bloomin Onion sauce also makes a wonderful condiment for hamburgers, chicken, and salmon. Experiment for yourself, and you will find that it the perfect accompaniment for any meal that needs a little zip.

Preparing and Storing Tips For the Outback Bloomin Onion Sauce Recipe

  • Be careful with the horseradish. Remember that horseradish is strong, so it is best to add it little by little at the end of the recipe and taste so you won’t end up with a sauce that is too pungent for you to enjoy.
  • Prepare the sauce in advance. The sauce needs a few hours in the fridge to cool down and fully incorporate its flavors. Remember to store the sauce in an airtight container in the fridge and use it before two weeks to ensure it stays fresh.
  • Throw out any unused sauce that you serve. You should not re-refrigerate any sauce for health reasons. Prevent having to throw out extra sauce by serving only a little at a time.

    It did not seem to taste right when I first made it, but I followed the recipe and let it sit in the refrigerator for a while. That was the trick. It tastes fantastic.

    Your recreations are always great & spot on! Can you try to make Outbacks Three Cheese Steak Dip? Its so good but don’t know the amounts to get the taste at home.

    I don’t know why anyone here is claiming that this recipe is “off.” I just bought an air fryer and was making some onion pedals and decided to Google the Outback recipe for this sauce and stumbled upon this. Just whipped it up and I’ll be damned if this isn’t spot on. So much so that I felt compelled to come back to comment so other people would feel a bit more confident to give it a go. I’m not sure how people deconstruct the flavors in things in order to backwards engineer them, but bravo. This is truly delicious. Thank you for posting this! This one is going on an index card. lol

    I CAN TELL YOU ONE THING THE DIPPING SAUCE DOES NOT HAVE OREGANO IN IT. I LOVE THIS DIP AND I Hate Oregano it is not in Out Backs dipping sauce!!!!!!!

      Your funny, clearly you are oblivious when your out to eat. I worked at outback and there is indeed oregano in the sauce. I won’t say how much, and this recipe is nowhere near the same, but it is tasty and worth making again. Lucky for myself I took pictures of all the recipes when I prepped at outback, empire brewery, delmonico’s and texas de Brazil.

        You realize you taking photos of corporate recipes is illegal, correct?

        And yes, I’m a professional chef of over 20 years to know this.

    This is a huge hit at my house we use it on everything from onion rings and french fries to hambugers. It is great, I did tweak a little bit but it is great.

  8. Joyce Schauer

    I am looking for a copycat recipe for the fried zucchini dipping sauce at The Italian Oven. My husband is just crazy about it and I asked but they don’t sell it. I would be totally delighted if someone could help!!!!

    Thanks a bunch!!!!

    • admin

      I have a couple of suggestions. I don’t know where this restaurant is. I don’t have any information on this recipe, but I might suggest that you post a request on the message board http://www.copykatchat.com in the recipe requests section.

      Thanks!

      Hi Joyce: This recipe for the Bloomin’ Onion is great for that. I bake zucchini and use it for a dip. However, the only thing about this recipe is I add (tablespoon at a time, until it is to my taste) sour cream. The sour cream takes away the little bit of 1000 Island dressing taste and to me gives it that perfect sauce for dipping onion rings, zuch., fried green tomatoes, etc. Enjoy!
