Talgyal jang jorim – Soy sauce egg

blog jan 2013 006 We have chickens. Lots of chickens.  So we have eggs. Lots of eggs.  I am always looking for new ways to cook eggs. This is a tasty recipe I recently tried.

I don’t remember having these in Korea and but my Yobo assures me they made a regular appearance at his family’s table growing up. My family members who have traveled to China tell me these are wildly popular there too.  Maybe I need to take another trip out east to discover for myself!

The recipe:

The time you need: 20 minutes

The things you need:

  •  6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2/3 cup water

The how to:

  • Boil the eggs for 10 minutes
  • Drain the water and rinse in cold water
  • Peel the eggs
  • Mix together the soy sauce, sugar and water in a small pot
  • Simmer the eggs in the mixture, stirring often until the liquid is all gone
  • Slice and serve.
