Restaurant Quick Hits: Outback Steakhouse Refuses to Grill Medium Rare Steaks?

Outback Steakhouse Restaurant Quick Hits: Outback Steakhouse Refuses to Grill Medium Rare Steaks?Outback Fakehouse: Is this Really Even a Steakhouse?

By Matt Goldstein

It’s easy to pick on chain restaurants of course, but being a steakhouse and refusing to make medium rare steaks is completely insane.  If you want a steak at Outback, the best you can do is a “warm red center” which is code for a medium steak.  When they told me “warm red center” I should have immediately asked for the coconut shrimp but instead, wanting a steak so badly, I took it on the chin and just got the steak.  Yup, it was a medium steak.  In our humble opinion, the only way to eat a steak is medium rare as a well done steak is like chewing on chalk, flavorless desert dry hard chalk.  Well done steaks are horrible and if you’re a fan, we encourage you to rethink your life, there have been some major mistakes made somewhere.  Obviously, Outback Steakhouse is trying not to get sued for getting someone sick by serving a steak too rare and trying to avoid becoming a news story for the same thing.

This calculation is made strictly for the money, not for the food.  If 50 people in a given city received and overcooked steak and decided not to go back, Outback feels no effect whatsoever, but if one person gets sick at a specific location and the story is publicized, Outback Steakhouse faces the loss of thousands and thousands of customers not to mention a million dollar law suit.  It’s a chain, it’s about the money.  However, if you are a steakhouse, that is part of the game.  If a restaurant wants to serves steaks, they must serve the steaks properly.  It’s deceptive to lure customers in with the promise of giving them what they want and then simply refusing. Outback Steakhouse should either advertise that they don’t allow medium rare steaks or start calling themselves Outback Fakehouse because they don’t know shit about cooking or grilling steaks.

  • If ever in Brookyln and want properly cooked steak, pop by Atlas Steak House. You will not be disappointed.

    There may be another reason. I had a problem with an overcooked steak, it may have been Outback, it may have been another chain. I had 3 steaks brought to me, and the “chef” came out as I cut into the last one. It was medium to medium well. He explained that that was the best he could do because all of their steaks hit the grill FROZEN! Maybe that is why outback won’t to med-rare. Can’t get there from frozen.

    Where is the word “sewed?” What are you talking about?

    What are you a complete moron? You are the one who does not understand how a steak should be cooked. Outback routinely undercooks it’s steaks. Overcooked??? One in a million at Outback. Undercooked, 9 out of 10.
    By the way, it’s sued not sewed which actually means you took a needle and thread to it, not approached an attorney.
