TikToker @dirtydawg420 has gone viral once again, giving viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the work in the kitchens of casual food chains. This time, he showed how to make Outback Steakhouse’s “gourmet” lobsters.
In a TikTok posted on Friday, @dirtydawg420 took pre-sliced lobster stored in a bin from the fridge. He put two slices in another bin and microwaved them. Finally, he dipped them with butter and paprika.
He says in the video: “This is goddamn gourmet. “That’s some fresh steamed lobster there.”
His videos on TikTok have been viewed more than 125,000 times.
Just a week before he posted TikTok lobster preparation, @dirtydawg420 gained attention on TikTok for showing off the way he cooks many steaks at a time when he was short on time while working in the Outback’s kitchen. And at another job at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen, he spread on December 18 for documenting the mayhem a food loader made after quitting his job and demolishing the kitchen.
Similar to the reaction TikToker received after posting a video on how to cook steak, commenters were amazed by the storage and culinary practices that @dirtydawg420 showed.
@ Jhnmllr91 wrote: “Preserved shellfish on beef”. “Beautiful.”
“Can we say cross-contamination?” @nickdanger993 commented.
“And this is why I cook at home,” wrote @matt3187. “Save money and cook better than any of these restaurants.”
Others predicted that @dirtydawg420 would get fired for posting videos of Outback Steakhouse kitchens.
“Watch out on social media,” @craigdaniless commented. “The Outback will let you go if you’re not careful.”
