Awesome recipe with a nice, slightly smokey and salty taste! :) Here is a neat trick to make the eggs look pretty for serving: Leave the eggs in their shells after they are hard boiled, then tap the shells against a hard surface to crack all over (but LEAVE THE SHELL ON). Once cracked, place the eggs in the soy sauce mixture and let soak. The eggs will still absorb the flavours but when you take of the shells to serve they will have a pretty marbled effect all over! (check out my photo) :)

Really tasty and simple! I'd say for anyone else cooking you probably want to count on turning occasionally over an hour or two for the best results, I think they would really need 30 minutes at least, but it is no hassle just don't start them at the last minute, the results are worth it!

Turned out perfect, I did it as the reviewer said & cracked the shell but left it on while the egg soaked in the sauces, 2-3 hrs. is best to really taste the flavors once peeled. I took a pic so let me see if I can add it to the other ones on here.
