Ramen Egg (Improved)

I blogged about ramen egg sometime ago and since then i have been trying to perfect it. i managed to get a very nice one today =) with almost runny yolk =)

this time i used a cold egg from the fridge and followed the same instructions but seeped for 4 mins. i may try 3.5 mins next time.

1 Fresh Egg
1 tbsp each of shoyu, mirin, sake

Heat the shoyu, mirin, sake in the microwave for 30 secs and 30 secs (total one min la but break it up so it won't boil over...)

fill a pot with water and place it over the fire then carefully place a COLD (FROM THE FRIDGE) egg into the water. roll it around a little with a spoon while the water comes to a boil. this is to make sure that the yolk doesn't skew to one side. once the water boils, shut off the flame, cover and wait 4 mins (i used an hourglass)

take out the egg, cool it in tap water and carefully peel it.

place the egg and mixture into a plastic bag and fasten it (i recycled a bread clip ^^). Leave it for a few hours. I left mine for about 4 hours in the fridge.

when ready to serve, cut in half with a string

but one thing i have not been able to do is peel the egg beautifully. there's always one or two pieces stuck to the white and the egg is then not smooth >.<

so that's my next area for improvement! gambatte ne!
