Real 3D printed steaks are now being served in restaurants – here’s where
The future of fancy restaurants could be built on 3D printed steaks.
Redefine Meat, an Israeli startup, is expanding where its product is available in Europe. The products in question are 3D printed steaks. Steaks are created from plant-based beef substitutes. But everything is set up to taste and feel like real beef steaks.

3D-printed steaks are now available at 30 more restaurants
Redefine Meat has expanded its operations in Europe. Restaurants in London, Berlin and Amsterdam now offer the 3D printed steaks the company has become known for. The full list of restaurants that plan to offer Redefine Meat has not been shared. However, we do know that restaurants owned by celebrity chef Marco Pierre White will offer the meat alternative (via Independent).
White’s and three other restaurants in the London area will serve Redefine Meat for £ 20-30. It’s priced similar to how these restaurants charge for traditional beef steak. In addition to the 3D printed steaks, Redefine Meat will also supply ‘top quality’ burgers, lamb skewers, ground beef and sausages to other restaurants in the Netherlands, UK and Germany. This should give restaurateurs multiple ways to try the plant-based meats the company offers.
How Redefine Meat Made Realistic Quality Beef

Plant-based meat is something that several companies have tried to promote over the years. However, it is often insufficient in one way or another. Whether by touch, taste or smell, it depends on the company that makes it.
With these new 3D printed steaks, however, Redefine Meat uses 3D printing, as well as artificial intelligence to recreate the meat. This includes capturing the feel of the muscle fibers of animal meat, as well as the juicy, yet firm texture. This has allowed the company to create 3D printed steaks that look, taste and smell like real beef or lamb.
Although they may look like real meat, steaks are made from plant-based materials. These materials include soy and pea proteins, as well as beets. The company also uses chickpeas and coconut fat to make the steaks more like the meat that inspired them.
Redefine Meat wants to offer its 3D printed steaks in more restaurants, as well as in supermarkets. He also wants to create additional cuts, like thicker or thinner. This should help make the offer more attractive to more customers as they can choose whatever fit they want. Right now, 3D printed meat is designed to mimic flank steak, also known as flank steak.
It is also not the first time that we have seen innovations driven by 3D printing. But, it is remarkable because of how similar the new steaks look to real meat.
It’s unclear when Redefine Meat will expand to other restaurants, or when 3D printed steaks might start appearing on store shelves as well.
