Can I Eat Low Sodium at Longhorn Steakhouse
Diners on a low sodium journey usually have at least one go-to menu item to look for when we dine out. We look for a sirloin or filet and a potato. Many restaurants, especially those that have a scratch kitchen will hopefully order in fresh beef. My chef friends tell me that they will often order a steak when at a restaurant that they are unfamiliar with. Simply because it is pretty hard for a chef to screw up cooking one. Oh, it still can happen, but hopefully it won’t. Longhorn Steakhouse is a chain and we need to explore what can we eat and stay low sodium at Longhorn Steakhouse.
Sodium Dangers at Chain Restaurants
When a restaurant is part of a large chain, they typically do not have a completely scratch kitchen. They tend to order foods from distributors. That food is subject to a lot of processing, brining, and salting, prior to the food ever arriving. That is why some chains are able to have low sodium options like Outback Steakhouse but sadly others like Texas Roadhouse must be avoided!
Longhorn Steakhouse is part of the Darden Restaurant group, and in 2016 they made a commitment to reduce sodium levels in their foods by 10% across the board. While that is an awesome start, I hope they will continue to increase that amount now and in the future. We found out all of the Longhorn Nutritional Information on their website here. So now we will find out what we can eat that is low sodium at Longhorn Steakhouse.
