Applebees #Beefamous & Giveaway


I received a gift card to try the new Applebees menu. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own.

Do you ever have a night when you are sick of cooking? You’re tired, everything seems to have gone wrong and the thought of having to spend an evening in the kitchen doesn’t sound like any fun? (I am waving my hand wildly in the air.) Lately we have been on a strict diet and and, although the prospect of going out to eat was tempting, I wasn’t sure if we could find a flavorful meal option that didn’t contain a lot of calories. When Applebee’s challenged me to try their “Unbelievably Great Tasting and Under 550 calorie menu,” I couldn’t get to my car fast enough! With choices like Roma Pepper Steak or Cheddar Grilled Salmon, I could have my steak and eat it too!

Grilled Chicken

Napa Chicken and Portobellos

I decided to surprise my family by telling them the choices they could order without letting them know the meals were lower in calories. Bryan chose the Lemon Parmesan Shrimp, featuring blackened shrimp sauteed with basil, onions and tomatoes and served over rice with a zesty lemon cream sauce, while my daughter and I chose the Napa Chicken and Portobellos, a flavorful grilled chicken breast topped with portobellos and onions. After they sampled the dish I asked if they could tell it was 550 calories or less. “No,” Bryan exclaimed, “this is really good!” “The only way I could tell on my dish was that it wasn’t served with many roasted potato wedges,” my daughter added. We even ended our meal by splitting a dessert shooter sundae, which, by the time we all had some, didn’t add up to an abundance of calories.

    I love Applebees. I’m having a hard time picking just one of their new items on the Great Tasting Menu, but I’d have to say the one I want to try most is their Savory Cedar Salmon.

    I would love to try the Lemon Parmesan Shrimp. I was in Applebee’s yesterday and tried something else new from their menu that was wonderful. I love their food!

  8. Tracy Robertson says

    I would like the Roma Pepper Steak! It looks so filling and flavorfull, especially since it’s under 550 calories!

  9. Geoff K says

    The Napa Chicken & Portobellos looks pretty scrumptious — I love the combination of flavors, and the fact that it’s one of the healthier new options!

  10. Natalie says

    I would love to try the cedar salmon or the parmesan chicken! I know I should eat more fish because it is good for you!

  11. Olivia Rubin says

    Love that they give you some caloric insight so,you can attempt to choose healthy. I think I would go for the napa chicken and portobello mushroom because it comes with potatos and I need something to sub for fries

  12. Shemp DeYoung says

    Roma Steak sounds like it would be very tasty. We have a new Applebee’s near us, I’d love to give it a try.

    I absolutely love Salmon so the Savory Cedar Salmon is the one dish I would love to try
