Applebees is famous for their steak and shrimp surf and turf meal, but you can enjoy this restaurant-quality dish at home! This copycat recipe combines grilled steak with sauteed shrimp and a creamy parmesan sauce for a savory and delicious dinner.

To start, preheat your oven to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and drizzle vegetable oil or olive oil on your steaks. Then season with salt and pepper.

You’ll also need to have your heavy cream, butter, lemon juice and grated Parmesan cheese ready. The sauce cooks quickly, so make sure you have everything ready before cooking.

Add the butter to a pan over medium heat and melt it while you prep the rest of your ingredients. Stir in garlic and let it cook for just a minute or two. Once the garlic is fragrant, add your cream and lemon juice. Then turn the heat to low. Once the sauce is simmering, add your Parmesan cheese and stir until it’s melted into the sauce.

Next, grill your steaks on an outdoor grill. You’ll want to give them a good char on each side, but don’t let them get overly cooked or dry. When you’ve reached the desired doneness (medium rare: 3-5 minutes, medium: 5-7 minutes, medium well: 8-10 minutes), flip them over and let them sit for 5 minutes to allow them to rest before serving.

If you’re not into grilling, you can fry the shrimp. Just melt a bit of butter in a pan and cook them until they are pink. Be careful that you don’t overcook them or they will become chewy.

This is a great appetizer recipe, too! It’s easy to make and the sauce is so delicious. You could even use it as a sauce for chicken!

A lot of recipes call for heavy cream, but this one works with vegetable broth instead. If you’re worried about the sauce being too thick, you can add beef broth to thin it out a bit. This will add a little more flavor and will also make the sauce a little less rich.


Applebees is one of my favorite restaurants, and they do a great job of mixing up their menu every once in a while. This particular dish is one of their many tasty offerings and it is a surefire winner for my kids and me. It is a simple recipe that requires no specialized skills or equipment and it can be cooked up in about half the time it would take to order it off the menu.

The recipe calls for two ribeye steaks, butter, flour, and heavy cream to name just a few ingredients. Aside from the aforementioned steak, shrimp is another must have in this meal.

Aside from showcasing the best steak and shrimp, this meal is made even better by the fact that you can make it at home in under an hour. To do this, start by grilling your steaks to your desired doneness. Once the requisite amount of time has passed, place them on a platter and cover with tinfoil or place them in a preheated oven to allow them to rest for about 5 minutes.

Aside from the aforementioned steak, you will also need to get your hands on some swanky looking wooden skewers. To do this, you will need to soak them in water first, so they don’t burn on your grill. The aforementioned skewers are then threaded with the shrimp mentioned. The most impressive part of this recipe is that it can be made using whatever cuts of meat you prefer.


Applebees parmesan cream sauce recipe is a simple yet delicious dish that involves grilled ribeye steak and shrimp in a creamy, garlicky Parmesan sauce. This recipe uses a few basic ingredients, including butter, flour, heavy cream and Parmesan cheese. It also uses a lot of salt and pepper to bring out the flavor in the meat and shrimp.

This recipe is very easy to make and can be made using a variety of cuts of steak. I recommend cooking the ribeye medium rare to medium (130-140 degrees) so it’s still tender and juicy, but not too soft and chewy. It’s best to season the steak moderately throughout the cooking process as too much salt can take away from the flavor of the steak.

This applebees parmesan cream sauce recipe tastes similar to Alfredo sauce but is a little thinner. I usually use vegetable broth for this recipe but if you’re not a vegetarian you can also replace the broth with heavy cream to make it extra creamy. If you want a thicker sauce add a little cornstarch to the mix to help it thicken up. You can also use chicken broth in place of vegetable broth for a more meaty version of this recipe.
