bœuf tendre / bœuf doux


S'il s'agit de décrire le goût et l'aspect d'un repas à base de viande de bœuf, j'entrevois deux possibilités, selon le contexte :
- tendre en rapport à sa texture ;
- doux en rapport à son goût, par opposition à pimenté, épicé et à la différence d'assaisonné, "seasoned". La cuisine anglo-saxonne distingue souvent les plats et les sauces en fonction de leur degré de piquant en mild, medium et hot. "mild" signifie qu'un plat, même assaisonné (sel, poivre, herbes aromatiques) n'est pas pimenté.
Ici, un article intéressant sur le sujet :

disagree  Tony M: In EN, 'mild' couldn't possibly be used to describe tenderness of texture; and here, because of the word order in EN, 'mild' cannot either be describing the seasoning; it is clear that it ONLY refers to the flavour of the beef itself.

agree  Yvonne Gallagher: I've never seen "mild" refer to texture (or to beef) but to the flavour of the DISH so disagree with Tony that 'mild' cannot describe the seasoning/flavour.

disagree  Tony M: I really don't think that could work in this context, since it would by implication appear to oppose "bœuf désagréable au goût"
