The Outback Steakhouse Blooming Onion is a treat the restaurant has been serving up since they opened. You can make this appetizer menu item just like they do, and you don’t need any fancy tools to prepare this Bloomin Onion.
Outback Steakhouse Bloomin Onion
I think this one of one my first copycat recipes. I can remember the first time I tried this bloomin onion. An onion is sliced in a way that it opens up, some might even say it “blooms”.
The petals are battered, and the onion is deep-fried and then this creation is served with a wonderful sauce. I know you will be blown away just like I was the first time I tried this creation.
How to Prepare a Bloomin Onion
Preparing this onion isn’t too difficult, the ingredients are fairly simple. You are going to need large sweet onions. A Vidalia or even a 1015 onion will do. A large sweet onion will give you the perfect flavor.
You will also need some beer, flour, spices, and cooking oil. My preference for cooking oil is peanut oil followed by vegetable oil. Any liquid oil will do, but I think peanut makes the onion more crispy.
