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.
