highly keto friendly

Outback Steakhouse is home to juicy, meaty menu items that can be accommodated in most diets and lifestyles.

Keto dieters are in luck because you will find plenty of low-carb soups, salads, and mains to satisfy your hunger pangs.

Most of the steak and meat-based dishes here have 1-3g of net carbs. While these meats naturally have no carbs, it’s the seasonings (like BBQ sauce) that contribute to this number.

I’ll give them brownie points for the wide range of low-carb beverages available here. You can get a beer or a glass of wine for 1-2g net carbs.

Below you’ll find a list of the best low-carb options that you can order at Outback Steakhouse.

Keto Tips for the Perfect Outback Steakhouse Meal

1. Order Dishes with 0 grams of Carbs:

A typical keto diet allows no more than 20g of net carbs per day. But what if you’ve already consumed 15g till evening and your friends are planning to catch up at the steakhouse?

That’s when you utilize the magic of zero-carb meats like grilled chicken, lobster tails, etc. Pair it with some blue cheese or a caesar dressing, and you are golden!

2. Ask for Dry Meats:

Places like outback steakhouse use BBQ sauce and various other sugar-laden seasonings to light up your meats.

If you are on ‘strict’ keto, ask for your meats to be cooked without sauces. The difference can be quite significant because every single carb matters when you are on such a restrictive diet.

For example, the grilled shrimp here has 2g net carbs, but if you ask for a sauce-free and seasonings-free grill, it will essentially be zero-carb.

3. Pick the Right Drinks:

Outback Steakhouse has plenty of low-carb beverages for you, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Whether you should have alcohol on a keto diet is a never-ending debate! But if you must order a drink, stick to pure forms of alcohol like whiskey, gin, tequila, rum, and vodka.
