Outback Steakhouse Mashed Potatoes Recipe with Step by Step Guide

I’m never tired of trying mashed potatoes, no matter how much time and effort it takes. My family members also like it. I have also shared my version of Delicious Mashed Potatoes Recipe (by Using Popeyes) with you. But you are in search of the easiest yet perfect mashed potato, go nowhere. You are at the right place buddy. You are getting the Outback steakhouse mashed potatoes here.

One more thing here, the garlicky flavor of the steakhouse mashed potatoes matters a lot to its fan if you know already. So, we will be using two garlic cloves to bring such flavor and make the most of this recipe.

Our today’s recipe is usually a side dish and has been serving as such for many years now. Basically, the steaks go very fine with this mashed potato, such as the chop steak recipe Hawaii. So, if you just go to your local grocery store, and get some fresh potatoes, you are all set to go for it. Recreate the outback steakhouse mashed potatoes recipe and enjoy!


  • Finely diced into 1-inch cubes, peeled russet potatoes (1 pound)
  • Hot milk (6 teaspoons)
  • Unsalted butter of room temperature (2 tablespoons)
  • Finely trimmed and peeled garlic cloves (2 large cloves)
  • Finely chopped parsley (1 tablespoon)
  • White pepper (2 teaspoons)
  • Water (as much as you need to cover all the potatoes)
  • To taste, salt

To Serve

Gravy (¼ cup per serving) 

To Garnish

A sprinkle of finely chopped green onions or parsley per serving


  • Set the cooking temperature high, and in a large covered pot, boil the garlic cloves along with the russet potatoes.
  • Then, take 20 more minutes to simmer by reducing the heat so that potatoes get tender gradually.
  • In a mixing bowl, take the potatoes and drain. But reserve a little water (1/4 cup).
  • Then, use a food mill or masher, whichever you prefer, to mash the garlic and potatoes together in a bowl while they are warm.
  • Now, add up the parsley, reserved water, unsalted butter, white pepper, and, of course, the milk.
  • Season the ingredients using salt and keep mixing until there is a smooth texture.

Now, you can adjust the Outback steakhouse mashed potatoes in your preferred way and serve with the gravy anytime.

Make mashed potatoes creamier

Well, simply focus on the amount of milk you are using. The more milk you use, the mashed potatoes are creamier. So, you must need the amount mentioned in the recipe, and use more as desired to get the desired creaminess.

In this case, if you can use an electric hand mixer to combine the ingredients, the result will be much better. You will smooth consistency with mind-blowing creaminess every time. The trick never fails. [Using some sour cream will bring a tangy and rich flavor if you prefer.]

Is there any substitute for milk?

Actually, milk does the job of keeping the mashed potatoes from getting unexpectedly dry. Milk also ensures the desired creaminess, as mentioned earlier. So, if you don’t have the milk, you can use water. But be patient and vigilant that the potatoes don’t get too dry. Moreover, you will not get the desired creaminess.

But, if you have only restrictions on taking milk, you should opt for coconut milk, almond, soy, etc. that is dairy-free milk. Adding some will also help in this case to maintain the creaminess.

To be frank with you, there had been days when I kept looking for a perfect recipe for the Outback steakhouse mashed potatoes. At some point, it felt like nothing was working, and then came my grandmother to visit us, who blessed me with this recipe.

This is the most ideal version of this recipe I have ever found. Hope and enjoy and let me know how you feel about this recipe.
