Outback Steakhouse boasts a gluten-free menu. Last night after a steak and salad (just veggies) I shared their Thunder Down Under Desert described as a gluten-free brownie with ice cream, hotfudge, whipped cream. I was in the bathroom an hour later.
Just wondered if others had had this experience. I'm new to this, three months Gluten free and feeling soo much better! So this was a disappointment.

I have eaten their thunder down under desert many many times! I really love it. I am very sensitive to CC, and it has never bothered me. I do have to share the desert, becuase if I eat too much of it, there is so much fat in the cake and icecream, that the fat contect bothers me, but I have never gotten sick from gluten from it. Good luck. Don't be afraid to try it again....

I LOVE this dessert! I've eaten it a number of times and never got sick, but I have gotten sick from their vegetables. Be sure to always order them without seasoning. There's something in their seasoning butter that gets me every time if I'm not careful when I order. I got my husband's veggies once and had taken one bite before I realized we had them switched. Big mistake!

Thanks and OMG I didn't even think to mention the vegetables that came with the steak! Like I said, I'm new to this and still learning what works and what doesn't.
Happy Healthy days to all.

Yes--the seasoned butter they put on the veggies has gluten. They can leave it off and bring you plain butter on the side.

The Thunder from Down Under is *the most amazing* dessert I've ever had! Having said that, though, I stay away from the ice cream they serve with it, as I'm lactose intolerant...I let my hubby and toddler fight over the ice cream :P Perhaps you have a bit of lactose intolerance?

From what I have seem in other posts, Outbacks seem a bit inconsistent. Some people have great luck at some locations. Going at a very busy time is risky for any restaurant.

We have had Outback a several different locations in California & in Oregon all with excellent food. Usually they are very good about anything ordered from the gluten-free menu. The food is a little rich so maybe your system is still too sensitive at only 3 months. Just a thought. I just had the dessert for the first time last week and I've been gluten-free for 10 months. I could only eat a couple of bites but it didn't make me sick & darn but it was good!

Chrissie, I am so sorry you got glutened and got sick.

Yes, Chocolate Thunder from Down Under is on the Outback gluten-free menu, and indicates that NO modifications are needed. I have eaten it several times in the past. Tonight I learned from our server (and kitchen staff AND manager on duty) that the Corporate Headquarters of Outback have recently changed the recipe for - of all things - whipped cream. According to the manager tonight "the recipe for whipped cream now includes a wheat flour-based starch added to the cream" as a stabilizer. The manager indicated that the change has been in place a few months. Nothing on the gluten-free menu or website warns us in the gluten-free community of this change.

I have written a comment to Outback via their website "contact us" page, expressing my displeasure at this decision on their part.
