Nona's Soy Sauce Eggs - Ramen Eggs

Recipe by Rinshinomori
READY IN: 9mins
YIELD: 6 eggs




  • Place the eggs in a sauce pan. Cover with enough water so that eggs are submerged and bring the water to boil.
  • As soon as the water comes to boil, turn off the heat and cover the pan. Let it sit 8 to 9 minutes. If you like less cooked eggs such as in ramen style eggs, let it sit 6 minutes only for softer yolk.
  • Plunge the eggs in cold water and crack the shell all around and soak in cold water for 5 minutes or so (this makes it easier to peel). Shell the eggs under running water. I find peeling from the the pointed side of the egg first makes it easier to peel.
  • Combine vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and sesame oil in a small pan and heat to boiling. As soon as it boils, remove from heat and let it cool a bit. Place the eggs in a large plastic bag or a plastic container and pour the marinade in and marinate for at least 24 hours, moving the eggs around from time to time.
  • Remove the eggs and cut in half length ways. Serve simply or top with condiments of your choice such as a bit of mayo, softened cream cheese, etc.
