Got this off of http://www.copykat.com Love Outback's steaks. Haven't tried this yet; wanted to post it first. I would use salt instead of MSG.

  5. Preheat a skillet or grill to med high heat add vegetable spray or vegetable oil and braise to perfection.
  6. This can be made at home!
  7. Can braze the steak in butter, not the vegetable oil.
  8. Copykat,com liked the use of Ale NOT BEER for the marinade.
  9. These amounts will handle 1 1/2 lbs of beef nicely.

I liked this marinade but my husband didnt. I wish I had some MSG for this one, I think it would really make it more like outback. I had to use salt. I also think my seasoning salt is not the best so that might have changed the flavor. I WILL try this one again with better seasoning salt and msg. Thanks for posting!

My boyfriend made this, it is WONDERFUL! Though he used a lite beer, it still came pretty close to Outback's steak. He also used a pinch of garlic powder. Very easy and steaks taste wonderfully!!
