Quick Reference

Clod is a British English term for a rather gristly cut of beef taken from the animal's neck. Presumably coined from its being a solid and unpromising lump of meat, it is first recorded in Queen Elizabeth's Household Book (1601): ‘He hath for his fee two cloddes, one little rumpe, chine of beefe, of every oxe that is sent to the Queene's house.’
