According to an Outback employee Thrillist spoke to over the phone, the new dish packs around 3,500 calories. It's even more gluttonous than last year's version, but of course, you have to consider it's meant to be eaten by a table of multiple people.

Outback Steakhouse has done the impossible. The restaurant chain has managed to take its already incredibly caloric Bloomin ' Onion and pack it with even more calories , bringing the grand total to 3 ,080. Just last year, Outback upgraded its classic dish, offering the Loaded Bloomin ' Onion with a

The 3-Point Rib Bloom is now available at Outback nationwide for $12.99, which is usually the price for like, 1/2 of a sirloin steak. Similarly to last year's Bloomin' Onion bacchanal, Outback is releasing the new dish just as March Madness begins, because nothing says basketball like oversized portions of fried food, cheese, and meat.

Beware the Ides of March, indeed.
