Here in Britain there is a long tradition of eating pies and this tradition is primarily english. My favourites are shephards pie and steak and kidney pie. Here is a video of Gordon Ramsay cooking a shepherds pie. He uses lamb though I have always used ground beef for the mince. <object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/noK4X_vqzn8"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param></object> I've also made a steak and ale pie. what other pies do you lot recommend? do you eat these sort of meals stateside?

I like steak and ale, because I'm not a huge organ meat eater. Chicken pot pie is great as well. My mum still makes mince pies at Christmas.

Shephards pie is on menus in some places and chicken pot pie is what dads heat up for the kids when mom is away but pies here are dessert usually.  Like apple pie or coconut cream pie.  Of course there are those who call pizza "pies".

Not as far as I know.

That's a great shepherd's pie recipe. btw.  You can make it even better by using sweet potatoes.

Cheers

Blackberry cobbler is the finest pie known to man. Here in the states pies are usually deserts.

French Canadian meat pie ("tourtière" in French) is very tasty and pretty popular in Quebec and the areas of New England where there are lots of descendants of Qubecois. It's bascially ground beef and/or pork, with some spices (cloves, others) between pie crusts. Some recipes include some potatoes, others don't. Often served with a side of brown gravy. Traditionally served on Christmas Eve, I think.
