Deck steps on uneven ground

I need to put steps for a deck down to uneven ground. The right side of the steps will be about 6 inches higher then the left. My question is what is the best way to level the ground and still make it look nice?

find the highest point and have teh stairs land there, then grade the yard to that so you have the stairs land on level ground

or....
find the lowest point the stringers will hit and then dig out the high side and make a level brick or cement landing for the stringers to set on...
