Question:

Can a gentile boil water,remove it from the fire and the jew will put a raw egg(or a Ramen noodle cup) inside to turn hard boiled. The pot will not be near the fire when the jew puts in the food to cook.

Answer:

It is permitted. The reason is because when the Jew puts the egg into the water, he is the one who essentially cooked it, and if a jew takes part in the cooking of the food, it isn’t bishul akum.
