Last year, Outback Steakhouse created a 3-Point Bloomin’ Onion in honor of the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament. The loaded variation featured the restaurant chain’s iconic appetizer, topped with cheese fries, and center-cut sirloin steak bites.
Needless to say, it checked off all of our criteria for a hearty appetizer.
This year, however, the 3-Point Bloomin’ Onion is taking on another form. The new 3-Point Rib Bloom features the steakhouses’ signature Bloomin’ Onion topped with Aussie Cheese Fries (fries topped with bacon, Monterey Jack, and Cheddar), and four BBQ Baby Back Ribs. Now I know how some people feel about ranch dressing, but if there was ever a prime candidate to serve with a bucket of that tangy nectar of the gods stolen from Mt. Olympus, the Rib Bloom would be it.
Outback’s new Rib Bloom will be available through the end of March Madness.
Imagine if they combined the ribs and the steak bites for next year’s promotion…
