Seasoned Soft-Boiled Eggs

Soft and creamy soft-boiled eggs. You can serve these in ramen noodles or other dishes.

Ingredients: 5 servings

Soy sauce
50 ml
Garlic (crush with the flat of your knife)
2 cloves
Ginger (sliced)
3 slices
Shaoxing wine
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon
Oyster sauce
1 tablespoon
200 ml


1. Poke a hole on the top and the bottom of the eggs with a needle so that they won't break. Bring to room temperature before boiling. Speed up the process by soaking them in room temperature water.
2. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar (not listed) in boiling water, and gently put the eggs in, then boil for exactly 6 minutes. Take them out, and soak in cold water. When you are making hard-boiled eggs, boil for 10 minutes.
3. Combine the marinade in advance, bring to a boil, and let cool. Peel the shells away from the eggs. Put the eggs along with the marinade into a plastic bag, and remove the air.
4. If you submerge the bag in Step 3 in water, you can get the air out easily. Occasionally move them around to avoid uneven coluoring. Let them sit in the marinade for 2 hours to overnight, then they're done!
5. If you use a fishing line to slice them in half, it works well!
6. The egg yolks will look like this after 8 minutes of boiling.
7. Enjoy in various dishes!
