Step 2

Season your steak on both sides. Outback receives their secret seventeen spice rub from the manufacturer. Even the chef doesn't know all of the ingredients. There are a wide variety of opinions when it comes to replicating the secret rub recipe. However, pepperberry, a native Australian spice seems to be the key ingredient in the seasoning rub. Add pepperberry to the steak seasoning you select and it will closely duplicate the flavor you want.

Step 3

Use a flat top grill to cook the steak. Pan sear the steak in butter to seal in the juices. It is the juices from the meat along with the butter and seasoning rub that creates the mouth watering Outback Steakhouse steak. Steaks will retain the juiciness that is reminiscent of the Outback style.


Step 4

Cook your steak to the desired temperature. Outback cooks their steaks slightly under the ordered temperature. You can always toss it back on the flat top grill, as they do at their restaurant.

Step 5

Enjoy the steak. Take note of what things you can tweak to perfect this Outback steak at home experience.


Be sure that you do not overcook the steak. It will become tough and flavorless. The steak will continue to cook slightly when you take it off the grill.
