Delicious or Nutritious? Outback Steakhouse

After the previous night’s fail, I decided I deserved a treat, so I tried Outback Steakhouse. I’d been hesitant to try the restaurant since they’re expensive and always seem to have a 75-90 minute estimated delivery time. Despite the 75-90 minute wait they estimated when I ordered, I only waited 30 minutes for my food to arrive – score! Such an expensive restaurant meant I could only have one meal and fit within my $40 budget. I went with the Lobster tails, steamed with two sides of my choice, for $29.99.

Having never had lobster tails before, my first though when opening up the foil was ‘Gasp! Sebastian!!!” Adding the melted butter and lemon probably gave it a few more calories than I need but it was worth every extra minute on the elliptical. For my two sides I decided to go with healthier options – fresh steamed broccoli and seasoned rice.

The broccoli was steamed PERFECTLY, soft enough to bit without losing it’s crunch. The rice was well seasoned with red and green peppers but I think I knew that taste already – Goya? I can’t have my rice dry so I sprinkled some of the melted butter over it, that did the trick.

Outback will let you get a piece of bread with butter, complimentary of course, and I suggest you take it! The multi-grain bread came nice and toasty, and was the perfect tiny addition to ensure my meal kept me full!

I love that the food was warm and flavorful. I wish that they didn’t try to serve me boxed rice.

With it’s filling portions, and great seasonings Outback Steakhouse is DELICIOUS and, if you choose right, NUTRITIOUS!
