Dessert At Outback Steakhouse
0

10 posts in this topic

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.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
