Outback Steakhouse runs out of 1 million free steaks, offers coupons instead

August 26, 2011 |  5:32 pm

Steak Winner, winner, steak dinner? Outback Steakhouse’s new promotion –- for a million diners to satisfy their carnivorous cravings for free -– ran out in less than two days.

But beef eaters who couldn’t claim a voucher on to one of the 777 participating stores may still be eligible for a $5 coupon.

The restaurant company says its Great Aussie Steakout freebie offer for a 6-ounce special sirloin and side coincides with the launch of its wood-fire grilling method and new menu items.

The Australian-themed chain, with dozens of California locations, is owned by OSI Restaurant Partners of Tampa, Fla.
