There's nothing we love more than food. Except maybe FREE food. While Outback Steakhouse isn't the kind of small, indie business we usually pimp here on Chow Bella, we have to admit they make a pretty awesome Bloomin' Onion appetizer. Sliced and fried till golden brown, the everyday onion ends up looking like some exotic Thai flower with petals splayed open to expose a creamy dip center. The normally spicy onion takes on a more subtle, sweet taste.
All you have to do to score a free Bloomin' Onion is be one of Outback Steakhouse's first 500,000 fans on Facebook. The restaurant currently has about 129,000 followers as of this posting, so there are still plenty of coupons available.
Instructions: Click Here to visit the Outback Steakhouse fan page; then click the "Become a Fan" button at the top of the page. Follow the prompts and enter your e-mail information and preferred location to get your coupon for a free Bloomin' Onion (with entree purchase).
