I agree. The end result wasn't "weird" to modern tastes. Perhaps
the direct broiling of the spices and mellowing of the butter makes
a flavor difference but the meat doesn't come out tasting like
pumpkin pie. When I made the beef for the egredouce I kept
cutting off chunks for me to nibble. No salt was needed either.
I'm going to try this on unsuspecting mundane tastes to see if they
find it off. But to my taste the sweet spices and butter makes for
a fabulous steak topping.
