Meat with mushrooms tends to bring out the flavor in pie


Beef is by far the most popular meat for savoury pies.

It’s versatile, hearty, and always a crowd-pleaser. Plus, there are endless ways to prepare it. Whether you like your beef slow-cooked and tender or full of flavour from a robust spice blend, there’s a beef pie recipe out there for you.


Chicken is a close second when it comes to popular meats for savoury pies.

It’s a great option if you’re looking for something that’s a little lighter than beef but still packed with flavour. And like beef, chicken is also very versatile.

You can use any type of chicken in a savoury pie, from dark meat to white meat, and it will taste great.


Lamb is the third most popular meat for savoury pies. It has a rich, gamey flavour that pairs well with hearty root vegetables like potatoes and carrots.

If you’re looking for a savoury pie that’s sure to impress, lamb is the way to go. Just be warned that it can be quite strong, so it’s not for everyone.
