Meat eating humans love to eat steak. From rib-eye, sirloin to tender and succulent fillets, DESIblitz presents the best steakhouses in Birmingham.
Steaks are spiced to your liking and served with either chips or sour cream and chive mash
A juicy slab of meat roasting on an open flame harkens back to the bygone era of the cave dweller.
To this day, meat-eaters cannot resist the opportunity to indulge in a delicious fillet of grilled or barbecued meat to satiate the appetite.
Legend has it that meat-eaters are hot blooded in nature. This rapidly rises to unregulated levels when deprived, or even denied, of high quality steak.
With that in mind, DESIblitz presents the best restaurants and eateries that serve the juiciest 10oz ribeye steak and more in Birmingham.

Another incredible restaurant from the Lasan Group, Fiesto del Asado describes itself as one of the first ‘Argentine Asado’ restaurants’ offering a ‘fun and fiery dining experience this side of Buenos Aires’.
The restaurant kitchen draws its inspiration from Argentine cowboys, called gauchos, who would cook their meat on rustic parrillas on the pampas (an Argentine grill).
The South American eatery prides itself on its succulently cooked meats. Using only free-range and ethically farmed beef, lamb and chicken, their steaks are dusted with house dry rub and served with fresh chimichurri.
An 11oz fillet on the bone can cost up to £25.49, while their largest steak, is an incredible 40oz, Bife de Costilla (£52.49) which can be shared between two people. The steak is a tender fillet on one side, with a sirloin cooked on the parrilla on the other.

Another Buenos Aires eatery, CAU (Carne Argentina Unica) offers mouthwatering steaks, burgers and steak sandwiches. All of their tasty beef steaks are served with chips or salad.
Their speciality cuts include the Lomito (£28.50), a fillet of rump considered to be the ‘finest cut in Argentina’. The steak combines the flavour or rump with the tenderness of sirloin. It is served with a blue cheese sauce.
Their ‘King of Steaks’ is the Tira de Ancho (£29.50), which is a spiral cut of rib-eye that has been marinated in chimichurri and grilled slowly.
The Asado de Chorizo (£29.95) is a spicy twist on a classic sirloin, as it is cooked in a churrasco marinade of smoked paprika, ají molido, garlic and parsley.
