What's with the lack of meat pie in American cuisine?

For a culture that loves carbs, fat, meat, and salt there is a serious lack of savory pies. Every other Anglophone country seems to love them.

Generally the only meat pie readily available in the USA is the chicken pot pie, and even that tends to be a seasonal item

Chicken pot pies are typical, but meat pies aren't. Not meme-ing but maybe since we don't have to make organ (kidney) pies with filler and can eat steak? I don't know. I'd enjoy them. Now I want to make them.

We have Turkey Pot Pies.
The Frozen Foods industry took the cuisine over and made them low-quality.
Good home-made ones are fantastic.

Plus Americans do pic related, but yeah meat pies are missing.

I think because the american staple is cow/chicken, so why have cow meat pies when we can just eat burgers and steak? I honestly dont know meat pies seem like the perfect american thing

>> No.13378145

oh did you just want to start a shitty thread about american mutts?
it doesn't matter how ethnically pure americans are, they have a tradition of clinging to what their previous generations grew up around
most "white" americans immigrated from germany
very few came from french areas and they're limited to certain states
which is why meat pies are rare and only prominent in those states

Chicken pot pies are year-round comfort food. We do beef and turkey pot pies too. You're right though, we don't do meat pies the way Brits and Aussies do. Some people make shepherd's pie, that's about all you'll see over here.

I don’t get why Americans are obsessed with green shit over their food, like what’s even the point of that shit if it doesn’t stick to the food? It’s just a waste of a product that you could’ve used in another way.

Steak pies are absolutely a thing.
The most popular Australian pies is probably mince beef (maybe with cheese) but the second would probably be steak and black pepper and the third chunky beef.
Steak and Kidney pie is way down the list.
There's also Chicken and Vegetable pie which is a chicken pot pie but in a pie shell instead of a ramekin.

Our meat pies are different from bongs in that ours are more like a meat stew which includes aromatic vegetables as well as potatoes, mushrooms, peas, green beans baked in a pie crust. They can be chicken, beef or turkey. They are not suitable for eating with hands as they have more gravy.

Agreed. My grandpa was from england so my grandma always made meatpies, and now every year at christmas my mom makes tons of them and gives them away but i never ever see them in the store here and almost everyone ive asked has never had a meatpie and often havent even heard of it. My wife hates them so i usually get like 5 meatpies to myself for christmas. Freeze them and eat them throughout the year.
