Western Australia's Pinjarra Bakery crowned best meat pie in Australia in competition

A family-run bakery has the best meat pie in the country after they won a national pie competition.

Western Australia's Pinjarra Bakery put forward its chunky beef mince pie to win the 'Best Plain Pie' category in the Great Aussie Pie Competition on Friday.

"We're absolutely stoked!! Best meat pie in Australia...gotta be happy with that! Thank you to the judges and everyone at @officialauspiecomp," the bakery wrote on Instagram.

The Great Aussie Pie Competition's guidelines dictate that plain meat pies must have "good lamination" on the pastry, which should not be too thick or thin.

Meanwhile, the filling must not have any gristle (cartilage) or bone and a "good, rich brown gravy" with a balanced "meat to pastry" ratio.
