I don't think I've ever tasted in Angus beef. Always ground beef and independent of fat content.

I actually don't think it's the fat taste at all because lean meat sometimes has it much stronger.

It's not packaging either. Had it both in fresh from the butcher counter and in vacuum packed meat. I know with the new vacuum packaging for chicken there's sometimes a really foul sulfur odor, so bad that I don't buy it anymore.

My nose is super sensitive though. I can literally smell the difference in grass fed ground beef vs corn/feed fed. Grass fed has a slightly off hay smell to my nose.
