About Outback Steakhouse

You don’t have to trek through the Australian Outback to find an Outback Steakhouse. In fact, there are only eight Outback Steakhouses in the whole of Australia. You probably wouldn’t find one in the vast area called the Australian Outback. If you are curious about this area, read more about the Australian outback region.

Is the Outback Steakhouse Really Australian?

The answer is no. The décor of an Outback Steakhouse may feature boomerangs and kangaroos on its walls, and its appetizers may be called “Aussie-Tizers,” but its menu is basically American.

The Outback Steakhouse was started in Florida in 1987 by its three founders who decided on Australian themes because they wanted to invoke a rugged, outdoorsy quality. Read more about Outback Steakhouse history.

More Than Just a Steakhouse

The Outback Steakhouse is the place to get a perfectly cooked steak. However, no one eats a steak just by itself.

One side dish that goes perfectly with an Outback steak is a potato. You can order an Outback Baked Potato, but don’t miss out on the Outback Steakhouse Sweet Potato.

If you don’t order one, you are missing out on a perfectly baked sweet potato topped with a delicious mix of honey butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Unlike some other restaurants, Outback uses real butter to make their honey butter taste amazing.


Here’s a list of what you need:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Butter
  • Honey
  • Dark brown sugar
  • Ground cinnamon

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes are super easy to cook. It’s best to get several of them in approximately the same size so that they will cook uniformly.

When you bake sweet potatoes, they tend to ooze a bit of sweet sticky liquid. To make clean-up a snap, line your baking pan or dish with some parchment paper or foil.

How to Make Outback Sweet Potatoes

  1. Wash the sweet potatoes and wrap each one with foil.
  2. Place foil-covered sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil.
  3. Bake the sweet potatoes at 375 degrees for approximately one hour, or until you can easily pierce the potatoes with a fork. 
  4. While the potatoes are baking, use a mixer to mix together the butter and honey.
  5. Remove the foil and split the sweet potatoes open with a knife.
  6. Top the sweet potatoes with brown sugar, cinnamon, and a scoop of honey butter.

The Outback Steakhouse Sweet Potato makes a great side dish. You can bake them ahead of time. Then when you get home from work, simply reheat them just before serving. They make a delicious treat after a hard day in the office.
