What is a Beef Patty or Pasty?
A Beef patty is a pastry that contains various fillings and spices baked inside a flaky shell, often tinted golden yellow with an egg yolk mixture or turmeric. It is made like a turnover but is more savory. As its name suggests, it is commonly found in Jamaica,
Now the Pasty, (sometimes known in the United States as a pastie or British pasty) is a baked pastry, a traditional variety of which is particularly associated with Cornwall, the westernmost county in England. It is made by placing uncooked filling typically of meat and vegetables, without meat in vegetarian versions, on a flat pastry circle and folding it to wrap the filling, crimping the edge to form a seal. After baking, the result is a raised semicircular food item. You can now have this savory treat from Michael Allen International Confectioner.

A pot pie is a mixture of meat pie ingredients made in a pot, hence the name "pot pie".An American pot pie typically consists of meat (particularly beef, chicken or turkey), gravy, and mixed vegetables (potatoes, carrots, green beans and peas). The pot pie differs from the Australian meat pie and many British regional variants on pie recipes, which may have a top of flaky pastry, but whose body is usually made from heavier, more mechanically stable shortcrust, hot water crust or similar pastry. In the Pennsylvania Dutch region, there is a dish called "bot boi" (or "bott boi") by Deitsch-speaking natives. Pennsylvania Dutch pot pie is a stew, usually made of a combination of chicken, ham, beef, or wild game with square-cut egg noodles, potatoes, and a stock of onion, celery and parsley. Bouillon is sometimes used to enhance the flavor. The egg noodles are often made from scratch from flour, eggs, salt and water. Some recipes use leavening agents such as baking powder, while others use only flour and hot broth. Michael uses free range chicken and top round beef steak for his pot pies along with fresh vegetables.
