  • Meaning

    Meat and two vegetables, i.e. meat with potatoes and another vegetable, is a traditional English meal.


    The term, in an allusion to the commonplace nature of this type of meal, has also been used metaphorically to denote an ordinary, run-of-the-mill offering. In the 20th century it has also been a jokey reference to male genitalia.
