Pour lukewarm water into a plastic bag. The temperature should be just right to dissolve the salt. So, add the salt to dissolve. Please refer to "Fast! Easy Peeling! Boiled Eggs " (Recipe ID: 993284) for boiling the eggs.
Add the bay leaf, roughly crushed peppercorns, and eggs ( boiled to your preferred hardness then peeled ) into the plastic bag.
Tie the bag so that the marinade will coat the eggs thoroughly. Let it sit for a whole day in the fridge. Drain and rinse the marinade before serving. Hard-boiled eggs are better for bentos.
Here's one way of serving these eggs. They will turn some simple boiled spinach into a festive egg salad.
Also great for "Hot Spring Cabbage Salad" (Recipe ID: 1061667).
I also recommend making smoked and marinated eggs with a soft-boiled egg.
Story Behind this Recipe
This is my variation of a recipe that I once saw on TV. Well, now it's our family's regular dish.
Be careful! Don't forget to rinse the marinade before serving. Otherwise, it's really salty.
