Making the famous Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup
If you have never tried the Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup, you are missing a wonderful bowl of soup. This is a creamy onion soup that is hearty and filling. It’s a perfect soup for a cold winter day when you want something really tasty and warming.

Unfortunately, the Outback Steakhouse Walkabout Soup has gone on a walkabout from the Outback Steakhouse. If you’ve been disappointed when they removed it from their menu, you can recreate this soup while staying at home.

About the Walkabout
The walkabout belongs to the Australian Aborigines. It was a cultural rite of passage in which young Aborigines between the ages of ten and sixteen undertook a journey to help transform them into adults. This journey could last for up to six months, and the participant had to live and survive all alone in the Australian wilderness.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sweet yellow onions sliced thin
  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • 14.5 ounces chicken broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1/4 cup Velveeta cheese

White Sauce for Soup

  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk

Instructions

Cooking the onions

  • In 2-quart saucepan, place butter and sliced onions. Cook at low to medium heat, stirring frequently, until soft and clear but not brown. Add chicken broth from can, chicken bouillon cubes, salt, and pepper and stir until completely heated through.

White Sauce

  • In a 1-quart saucepan, melt butter and add flour. Cook on medium heat until the flour turns thick and comes away from the side of the saucepan. Pour milk into flour a little at a time and stir constantly; add salt. The mixture should thicken and become like thick pudding. Remember to stir constantly, taking care not to let mixture lump. Remove from heat and set aside until ready to use for the soup.

Finishing the soup

  • Add white sauce and Velveeta cheese. White sauce will be thick because it has been removed from the heat. Simmer on medium-low heat until the cheese is melted and all ingredients are blended, stirring constantly. Turn temperature to warm and let cook for additional 30-45 minutes. Serve with a garnish of shredded cheddar cheese and a couple of slices of warm, dark Russian bread.
