A shepherd herds and manages sheep, usually to raise them for eventual sale at a meat market. When used as a verb, the word shepherd method to guide something (such as sheep); move them in the direction of where you want them . For sheep, that often means from their pencil to a field of grass where they graze. Thus, the shepherd shepherds the sheep into the field from their pen.
A pie is composed of pastry formed into a bowl which will have a staple food product that the baker selects (meat, vegetables, or fruit). With that much done, the item could be called something other than a pie. When the baker adds a pastry cover (top or lid) then bakes his or her invention, he or she has baked pie. The title shepherd’s pie suggests that mutton (the meat of sheep) got baked into the dish. While true, if the baker chooses to use mutton, the name shepherd’s pie applies to some edible food shepherded to the pastry bowl.
You know the title for prepared food products that were not all consumed: leftovers. Shepherd’s pie, a freshly-baked presentation of kitchen leftovers, provides a baker with a range of chance to liven up an otherwise B record meal while clearing the refrigerator of older, yet usable food before it spoils. I’ve seen the name”cowboy’s pie.” A pie will eat (taste) the same if the title changes; the pie itself stays the same. Cowboys herd cattle, as shepherds herd sheep.
If from Argentina, you may consult with a pie as gaucho pie, since a gaucho (the Argentinean word for a cowboy) herds cows while on horseback. Speaking of cows, western Americans favor the title cows, and they detest the term boy when referring to themselves and their heritage of herding cattle. They enjoy cattlemen better. Cattlemen’s pie works then, doesn’t it? It also seems better than cowboy’s pie. Probably, we should let go there, since cattlemen do not usually herd cows, which live in barns, create dairy products, and create little cows (calves).
Cattlemen herd steers into the meat industry. Steers, young castrated bulls, must be used up until they become oxen (massive feed-consuming beasts once used to haul heavy burdens in carts). We don’t need oxen anymore since we have trucks to haul heavy burdens. If you prefer to eat beef and hamburger, then you recognize the usage of steers. However, you probably don’t need to consider a pie made with leftover castrated bulls.
