Recently, I’ve “discovered” really delicious pork pies by the The English Pork Pie Company based in Buffalo, NY. It does sound ironic that one could find such things that is a very English food item in upstate New York. This company Damian and Vicky Parker started this brand in 2008, knowing that the large British expat community.
Pork pies are made of roughly chopped pork and pork jelly sealed in a pastry. The English Pork Pie Company’s pies were delicious. The savory pastry crust was flaky and just had enough ratio to the dense, lard-y, wonderfully seasoned, pork meat filling. They do create flavored pies like the Steak & Ale that has a similar crust to the Traditional Pork Pie except it’s much thinner and flakier and the steak filling was delicious. Not as decadent as their pork pie.
These pies are great as a hearty meal (with a side of salad) or a snack if you’re sharing with a friend or two.
