Hard cooked eggs marinated in soy sauce

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine soy sauce, vinegar, and sugar. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Put the eggs in a pot of water and bring to a boil. Turn off the heat, let sit for 6 minutes.
  3. Take eggs out of the pot and put them in an ice water bath, until they are cool to the touch.
  4. Peel the eggs and put them in a zip-lock bag with the soy marinade.
  5. Marinade for 12 hours, rolling the eggs around occasional for uniform coverage.
  6. Note: the yokes should come out glossy. If you want your yolks firmer, leave in the pot for up to 15 minutes. The Marinade can be used several times, keep in a jar in the fridge.
