Nona's Soy Sauce Eggs - Ramen Eggs

A very simple recipe using my favorite food, soy sauce, for marinating boiled eggs. You can eat these eggs simply sliced or whole. I admit, I love these eggs served simply or in ramen and have them often in my refrigerator for a quick snack. If you like you can add many other ingredients to the marinade such as garlic, gochujang, miso, tobandjan, tenmenjan, tabasco or other hot sauces. These eggs are often served in ramen in Japan. For an authentic Japanese ramen style eggs, boil for 6-7 minutes only for softer yolk.Tasty on a salad. Thank you!And I never thought it was possible to make them at home. I like the 6 minutes ones too. Once I made ramen soup from the scratch and while was good something was missing and I'm quite sure it was the eggs!Rinshinomori, thank you! Simple and wonderful wins every time! With your Japanese cultural advantage here on Zaar, you may feel some pressure to educate us non-Japanese. Please contribute this quality of Japanese recipes to this site! Please! I cannot wait to make the 6-minute version with Ramen noodles! Made for Aussie NZ Recipe Swap #22.
