Aussie Meat Pie and Sauce
Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

The pie itself is considered iconic in Australia and New Zealand and is similar to the United Kingdom’s steak pie.

  • It was described by former New South Wales Premier Bob Carr in 2003 as Australia’s “national dish”.
  • New Zealanders regard the meat pie as a part of New Zealand cuisine, and it forms part of the New Zealand national identity.
