Ramen Eggs =D

read the improved version here

Don't you love those eggs in ramen with gooey yolks?? i tried making them and it turned out quite good! ^^

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 room-temperature 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 3 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.

I guess you can cut it with a thread but i just pried it open with my chopsticks ^^ i had it with some udon soup.


next time i will try it with the packet of frozen sapporo ramen i bought!
