Outback Steakhouse in Woodbury, Minnesota

We have been to the Outback Steakhouse before and decided to try it again.  This time we had a little challenge in getting the food right.

Being a creature of habit, I ordered the same thing as I did before, the Outback Special which includes a 6 ounce sirloin with 2 sides.  I selected the Sweet Potato and the Blue Cheese Pecan Chopped Salad.

They always serve a wonderful warm bread with soft butter on the side.

Then the Blue Cheese Pecan chopped salad is served.  This is always one of my favorites.  It has the right amount of “bite” to it.

Lastly, the sirloin is served.  I always ask for it to be cooked well done — no pink!  When I received it, the first thing I did was cut into the steak.  Sure enough, it was not well done.  Back it went.  The manager personally delivered the next steak and kneeled next to the table while I cut into it to make sure it was well done.  Nope!  Back it went.  The third time they got it right.

The manager explained that they had a new cook.  
The sirloin was moist and was seasoned very nicely.

I always forget to ask them not to put brown sugar and butter in the sweet potato.  A sweet potato tastes fine with no added flavoring.

My husband ordered the steak fried steak that comes with green beans and garlic mashed potatoes.  I took a bite and it tasted fine.  Kind’ve reminded me of my mother’s Puerto Rican empanadas (steak coated in crumbled crackers and then fried).

When we received the bill, the manager had deducted the price of the sirloin.

Way to go Outback!
