Here is my best explanation:

'more beefy' is the definition.

Both the definition and answer are comparative adjectives. Maybe you can see an association between them that I don't see?

'mass one consumed by consumer' is the subsidiary indication.

'mass' becomes 'm' (symbol used in Physics e.g. f=ma).

'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).

'consumed by' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'consumer' becomes 'eater' (eater is a kind of consumer).

'i' placed into 'eater' is 'eatier'.

'm'+'eatier'='meatier'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for meatier that I've seen before include "More brawny", "having more muscle", "More substantial - emirate (anag)" and "Having more flesh".)
