In Ireland, it has been prepared by the Ballymaloe House,[4] and as a classic dish of the Ballymaloe Cookery School.[5] In the United States, it's a regional dish of Norfolk, Virginia.[citation needed] There, neck, flank, round, or rump may be used. It is prepared in a Dutch oven, where it is slow-cooked until gelatinous.[6] In New Zealand, steak and oyster pie may be made with Bluff oysters. It may also be made with ale.[7][8] The dish is prepared by Rick Stein using Guinness beer.
