If you have never tried the Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup, you are missing a creamy bowl of soup. This is a creamy onion soup that is hearty and filling. This is a perfect soup for a cold winter day when you want something a little hearty.
Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup
This has to be one of my favorite soups from the Outback Steakhouse, the Walkabout soup is not only easy to make, but it has a few simple ingredients so you won’t be running out to the store to make this one. If you are unable to get the Walla onions, you could use 1015 onion or other sweet onions. I find that white onions also work well for this recipe. This recipe makes 4 small portions which are the perfect way to start a meal.
You may want to use low sodium products when making this recipe, between the chicken bouillon and the Velveeta cheese this soup may become too salty for some. I always like to under salt slightly when cooking because I can always adjust seasoning after the fact.
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cups sliced onions
4 (10.5 ounce) cans beef broth
2 tablespoons dry sherry (optional)
1 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices French bread
4 slices provolone cheese
2 slices Swiss cheese, diced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese the same amount.
Melt butter with olive oil in an 8 quart stock pot on medium heat. Add onions and continually stir until tender and translucent. Do not brown the onions.
Add beef broth, sherry and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, and simmer for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven broiler.
Ladle soup into oven safe serving bowls and place one slice of bread on top of each (bread may be broken into pieces if you prefer). Layer each slice of bread with a slice of provolone, 1/2 slice diced Swiss and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese. Place bowls on cookie sheet and broil in the preheated oven until cheese bubbles and browns slightly.
