Since KB resurrected this thread, I thought I'd address this post.
pmeheran, I don't understand it at all.
I assume you are NOT suggesting there is interbreeding among cattle, sheep and lambs that homogenizes the flavors.
Lamb meat has a stronger flavor when it's fed grass. If it's switched to grain, the flavor becomes milder because animals taste like what they eat.
What is a violently seasoned food?
