If there were a "gestalt of not cooking," this food item might belong there:

Apparently it's quite popular in Belgium, but you couldn't get me to try it.

Back in the mid 60s, when I was working in Greenland, we would fly to Copenhagen for vacations. There was a restaurant there called “Oscar Davidson’s” that had a sandwich menu that was about 4 1/2 feet long (See; ). There was a number of sandwiches on that menu that contained raw beef. One of my favorites consisted of a thick slice of buttered white bread that was covered with raw ground beast and sprinkled with diced onion and capers. In the center was a raw onion ring that had a raw chicken egg’s yolk in it. To eat it you sprinkled on salt & pepper, broke the yolk and spread it over the meat and ate the sandwich using a knife & fork. Yum!
