My family and I were invited to attend a special VIP tasting night at Outback Steakhouse® on Tuesday to try the new Moonshine BBQ menu, which is available NOW (for a limited time). All thoughts are my own.
My kids and I have been fans of Outback Steakhouse® for a long time…but last night’s dinner may have been our favorite Outback experience ever. EVER.
Outback Steakhouse® is introducing a limited time only Moonshine BBQ menu, made with real moonshine (I warned my kids, since they know what moonshine is, that the moonshine is cooked away). New menu items to hit the sauce include:
- Sirloin with Moonshine BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp
- Moonshine BBQ Ribs
- Moonshine BBQ Wood-Fire Grilled Wings
- Moonshine BBQ Chopped Salad
- 3 Moonshine cocktails including the Huckleberry Hooch, Watermelon Hunch Punch and Just Peachee
- Skillet Apple Pie
Our Moonshine tasting experience began with Moonshine BBQ Wood-Fire Grilled Wings with Ranch dipping sauce. We were all licking our fingers – the Moonshine BBQ sauce was an instant hit with everyone, even my BBQ-sauce-hating daughter. We couldn’t get enough!
Our server brought out the Moonshine BBQ Chopped Salad next…and all 3 of the girls (me and 2 of my daughters) commented that it was one of the BEST salads we had ever tasted. It was full of flavor and the perfect combination of ingredients (and lots of them!). My daughter who was hesitant to try a salad with BBQ in its name was insanely impressed. It doesn’t taste BBQ-y. It’s just delicious, period.
The Moonshine BBQ Ribs came next, with a few Moonshine BBQ Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp on the side. The rib meat was so tender and juicy that it literally fell off the bones – but AJ’s favorite part about it was the “crunchiness” of the outside of the ribs. They were definitely worth getting our hands a little dirty. Yum!
The bacon-wrapped shrimp doesn’t even need any commentary, does it? I mean…bacon-wrapped shrimp??
As we finished off our meal, we were stuffed…but I was sure to leave plenty of room for the skillet apple pie topped with vanilla ice cream. My favorite thing about the apple pie was that it was not too sweet (which just meant that I ate more of it than I needed to!). It was a perfect sharing size, too!

My kids and I are going to be rooting for Moonshine BBQ to stay on the menu permanently! Necco already has plans to celebrate her 15th birthday at Outback Steakhouse® in a few weeks.
