Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup
Welcome to #SouperJanuary! In honor of National Soup Month I will be sharing some “souper” recipes with you all month-long. To begin I chose a fabulous copycat recipe for Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup.
Plus I’ll be giving away a Le Creuset 10-Quart Stockpot to one lucky reader!
On a recent trip to Outback Steakhouse I noticed that their Walkabout Soup wasn’t on the menu anymore (does anyone know if this is permanent? Will it be moonlighting as a “soup special” at all?). Panic set it. As soon as I got home I searched for a copycat recipe. I tried the one I found a few times and tweaked it a little. This recipe tastes very, very close to Outback’s Walkabout Soup. I hope you enjoy my copycat recipe!
Cook’s Note for Walkabout Soup:
- If you’re serving this as a main dish, it will serve 6 people.
- After you whisk in the flour in step 2, a few small clumps of flour will remain. Don’t fret, they will be gone at the end of the 30 minute simmer!
- 10 cups low sodium chicken stock
- ¼ cup white cooking wine
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 large sweet yellow onions, quartered and thinly sliced
- 1 large white onion, quartered and thinly sliced
- 1 cup all purpose flour, sifted
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese, plus more for garnish
- ½ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, plus more for garnish
- salt & freshly-ground black pepper to taste
- In a large stockpot add the chicken stock, cooking wine, bay leaves and onions. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce to a simmer. Simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour.
- Remove the bay leaves, and gently whisk in the flour until a few, small clumps of flour remain. Simmer soup for 30 minutes.
- Add the cream, cheddar, and Monterey cheeses. Stir until the cheese melts, and then turn off the heat. Season with salt & pepper.
- Serve with extra cheese as garnish.
