Every culture’s got a meat pie. Turns out the miners from Cornwall, England, who settled in the hills of Morris County, N.J. have one too: a pastie. Rocky’s in Wharton has been selling them for four generations.
The meat pastie (pronounced PAS-tee) is made with beef, potatoes and onions, wrapped in a golden, flaky pastry.
You can also get sausage or chicken.
The place is deservedly famous.
A shot for posterity.
And filling. Just as a miner’s lunch should be.
