Here’s a recipe for Outback Steakhouse’s Walkabout Onion Soup:


  • 4 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 slices French bread
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook until they are caramelized and golden brown, stirring occasionally. This process may take around 30-40 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle the flour over the caramelized onions and stir well to coat them evenly. Cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Pour in the beef broth, chicken broth, water, and dry sherry. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper, and dried thyme. Bring the mixture to a simmer and let it cook for about 20 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  4. While the soup is simmering, preheat your oven’s broiler. Arrange the slices of French bread on a baking sheet and toast them under the broiler until they become crispy and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  5. Ladle the soup into individual oven-safe bowls or crocks, leaving some space at the top.


  1. Place a slice of toasted French bread on top of each bowl of soup. Sprinkle a generous amount of Swiss cheese and Parmesan cheese over the bread slices.
  2. Preheat your oven’s broiler again and place the filled bowls on a baking sheet. Broil the soup bowls for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, bubbly, and golden brown.
  3. Carefully remove the bowls from the oven using oven mitts, as they will be hot. Let them cool for a minute or two before serving.
