Outback Honey Mustard Sauce

You can never get enough of Outback Steakhouse Honey Mustard Sauce. This popular sauce is terrific on a salad dressing, perfect for dipping chicken tenders into or marinating pork and chicken with before they hit the barbecue grill.

Despite its name and accent, Outback Steakhouse is an American invention. As an Australian themed, American style chain of casual dining restaurants, Outback Steakhouse operates over 1000 locations throughout the world. Four friends founded the first restaurant in 1988, Tampa, Florida, where it is still headquartered today.

How to Make Outback Honey Mustard at Home

Outback Steakhouse Honey Mustard Sauce uses only three ingredients, but you cannot use substitutions if you want to achieve the authentic taste and texture.

  • Grey Poupon Dijon Mustard
  • Mayonnaise – I recommend Hellman’s or Best Mayonnaise brand
  • Honey

Ingredient Notes

The original Grey Poupon mustard, named after the two men who combined their mustard-making businesses to form one company in 1866, did indeed start out as French mustard. Today though, the mustard is owned and manufactured by an American company and made with Canadian-grown mustard seeds.

Although Miracle Whip is a fine substitute for mayonnaise in almost any recipe, it won’t work here. Miracle Whip is a combination of mayonnaise and other ingredients. Because it doesn’t have enough egg in it as real mayonnaise does, it will separate when you add the honey, which is quite dense.

Ingredients for Outback Steakhouse Honey Mustard Dressing.

But don’t let that shy you away from making my version of Outback Steakhouse Honey Mustard Sauce. This delicious sauce is easy to make and you probably have everything you need in your cupboard already.

Whipping together these three basic ingredients will give you a great tasting salad dressing, dipping sauce, and barbecue sauce. Best of all, this honey mustard sauce stays fresh for up to seven days in your refrigerator.

The recipe isn’t a secret anymore. Now you can make Outback honey mustard at home with this copycat recipe.

    This is pretty darn close. I use to work at the original Outback.
    The accurate recipe is equal parts mayo/honey and 1-3 parts honey. So for every 3 tablespoons of mayo and honey you have 1 tablespoon mustard.

    I have looked at many recipes and none appear to hit what is truly Outback’s House Nonet mustard vinegarett recipe. They wil also refer to this as :Italian” There are spices that can be seen in the dressing and NONE of the recipes call for it. What’s up?????

      My guess, is that they used to serve a honey mustard dressing, this recipe has been on my website for 20+ years, it sounds like they also serve another salad dressing as well.

    Being on a diet I could not eat this but my whole family did and devoured their salads. Even my very picky 8 year old daughter loved this salad dressing (the only salad dressing she would eat was ranch).

    Re: Outback Steakhouse Honey Mustard Dressing recipe

    You state that Steven Man suggests using lite mayo rather than regular. I was wondering — does he suggest the change to make the recipe taste more like Outback’s, or does he offer it simply to make the dressing more low cal?
