The type and amount of meat you use in your meat pie will depend on your personal preference and the recipe you are following. Some common types of meat used in meat pies include ground beef, ground pork, lamb, chicken, or turkey. You can also use diced or shredded meat, such as roast beef or pork, or a combination of different meats.
As for the amount of meat, a general rule of thumb is to use about 1-2 cups of diced or shredded meat for a 9-inch pie. However, you may want to adjust the amount of meat depending on the other ingredients you are using and your desired ratio of meat to vegetables and other fillings.
It's also important to consider the seasoning and flavor of the meat. You may want to add herbs, spices, and other seasonings to the meat to give it more flavor. You can also use a pre-made meat filling or use a recipe that includes a sauce or gravy to moisten the meat and add flavor to the pie.
