Soy Eggs

Mahhkk's soy sauce egg
These soy sauce eggs are an amazingly tasty snack - or breakfast. I usually try to have a few ready to go in the fridge at all times.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 6 eggs


  • 6 eggs
  • 6 Tbsp water warm
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce preferably low-sodium


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil
  • Whisk together the water and sugar in a medium-size bowl to dissolve the sugar
  • Stir in the rice vinegar and soy sauce and mix to combine
  • Carefully put the eggs into the boiling water and cook for just under 7 minutes. Fill a large bowl with cold water and ice. When the eggs are done, transfer them to the ice bath to stop them from cooking
  • Once the eggs have cooled down (should be about 5 minutes), peel them in the water
  • Transfer the eggs to the bowl with the soy mixture and marinate in the fridge for two to ten hours
  • To serve, cut the eggs in half lengthwise and season with salt and pepper


You can save the soy sauce marinade for a second round of eggs, though you'll want to let the second batch marinate a little longer since the flavors won't be quite as strong.
