Great Ideas: Shoyu Tamago (Soy Sauce Eggs)
I am not allowed to post any more pickled deviled egg recipes here.
I LOVE anything pickled and we all know that I love eggs, so it's just natural for me to want to post them every spring.
They are just so pretty dressed in pink.
Well, now my eggs are dressed in brown.
I'm going Japanese today.
How can something so simple have such depth and flavor?
They have that "umami" thing going on here (3rd time I have said that word in a post, I'm starting to like it).
This is a Japanese bento box snack, and it is now a Stacey snack.
I loved these. A little sweet, rich and salty. Just a little bit of flavor that makes you want to take another bite.
I see these sometimes topped on a beautiful bowl of ramen.
I used tamari sauce, but a good quality soy sauce is fine too.
Shoyu Tamago (soy sauce eggs): adapted from Eat Your Greens
3 tbsp tamari sauce or soy sauce
3 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp granulated sugar
Boil your eggs for 8-9 minutes. Run under warm water and peel immediately (you want the eggs to be warm).
In a small saucepan, heat the tamari/soy sauce, sugar and vinegar. Simmer for a minute or two until sugar is dissolved.
Turn off flame and roll the peeled eggs in this mixture for a few minutes, until chestnut brown. The longer you keep them in the sauce, the darker brown they will get.
Best served warm, but still great the next day out of the fridge.
