DIRECTIONS

  • Boil the eggs until they are just coagulated, and place them immediately in cold water. You will need to PEEL the eggs or crack them well, so the egg whites need to be firm enough to withstand this.
  • Tap eggs gently all over to cover with cracks or peel them entirely. Cracking the eggs will give them a mottled look that is really beautiful, but peeling them will give them a consistent coating.
  • Add the eggs to a pot that is small enough that when filled with 1 cup soy sauce, 1 cup water, 1 slice of ginger, and half teaspoon of five-spice powder, the liquid completely covers the eggs.
  • Simmer over low heat for 25 to 30 minutes, then let steep for another 1/2 hour. Cool.
  • If you have left the shells on, crack open the eggs and peel them.
  • Slice into wedges and serve.
