Boiled ramen eggs (4 to 6 servings)


  • A dozen fresh eggs
  • I cup of water

For marinade

  • 1/4 cups of soy sauce
  • 1/4 cups of mirin
  • A cup of cooking sake for seasonings

  • 1 cup of dashi stock

Optional spices


  1. Using a spatula or wooden spoon, carefully place your eggs into a pot of boiling water. Ensure the water for boiling the eggs is able to cover them in the pot and cover with the lid. Set digital timer to cook eggs for 6 minutes at most if you’re boiling at a higher temperature of 350°F or more. Remember to stir the eggs for the first minute of cooking to ensure an even distribution of the egg yolks in the middle.
  2. Once the timer goes off, get the eggs straight out from the pot and into an ice bath you prepared beforehand. Stir the eggs in the ice bath for 30 seconds, then allow to cool for an additional 6 minutes as it’s believed to stop the cooking process.
  3. Next up, set out to make your marinade mix in a saucepan or a small size pot. Add your measurements of soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and other spices and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Allow the marinade to cool completely for some minutes so to avoid overcooking your ramen eggs.
  4. Remove your eggs from the ice bath and pour the cooled-off marinade mix over it, ensuring all the eggs are totally covered in the marinade. The eggs might float at first but will sink down later on.
  5. Using some paper towels or a plastic wrap, cover the eggs to get them well submerged and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 24 hours or until you’re ready to serve. You can choose to discard or preserve the marinade mix for a later use. When serving eggs, if you cut it open into half, you will notice that the egg yolks are quite jammy and jelly like while the egg whites has developed a brownish firmer surface.
