Question Nearly Raw Hamburger

OK. I know the drill on bacteria, especially on ground meat. But does anyone else like hamburger barely cooked?

Medium is as low as I will go for hamburger.

Well, medium-rare is my favorite, but rare would be my second favorite.

For flavor, I love raw hamburger, but don't eat it for obvious reasons. If I could get it irradiated by gama radiation, that would be great. It would be free from all the little nasties and safe to eat in that state. But I can't, and don't have any gamma emitters around, so I'm stuck cooking anything made with ground beef. Now that's not to say that a perfectly grilled, or pan-fried burger is not a great meal...

Out of a cookbook called "The World's 100 Greatest Recipes" comes a recipe for Luca Augen, or Luca Eyes. In consists of 1 lb. ground round, shaped into a square. A depression is made in the top of the raw ground beef and a raw egg is placed into it, yolk intact. Top this all with a tbs. of caviar and enjoy.

I don't think I could stomach that one.

I had raw ground beef many years ago in Germany served in a green pepper with several things on the side. Yummm!

Yea I think that would be too rich for me to GW, especially since I can't stand raw egg and not a big fan of caviar...

I like my burger medium rare but no more than medium. I hate it when they cook em up well done.. hockey pucks with cheese on em! LOL.

I don't like mine barely cooked.
The meat needs to be pink all the way through.
