‘Soy Sauce Egg’, Boiled Egg marinated in Soy Sauce, has become popular in Melbourne where I live as ‘Ramen’ (Japanese style noodles in soup) has become popular and ‘Soy Sauce Egg’ is a common topping for ‘Ramen’. You can marinate Boiled Eggs in Miso as well. I recommend to add extra ingredients for flavours. These ‘Miso Marinated Eggs’ are more suitable to eat with freshly cooked Rice. They are also great for drinking.


2 Servings


4 Boiled Eggs *see ‘Water & Energy Saving Boiled Eggs’

2 to 3 Spring Onion *white & lighter colour parts only, finely chopped
1 small piece Ginger *grated
2 tablespoons Miso *I used White Miso
1 tablespoon Mirin
1/2 teaspoon Toban Djan (Chilli Bean Sauce) *optional, OR some Chilli Flakes
1/2 teaspoon Sugar *optional, alter the amount

  1. Prepare Boiled Eggs to the softness that you prefer.
  2. Combine all the Marinade ingredients in a small bowl. *Note: If you like the Marinade sweeter, add some Sugar.
  3. Peel the Boiled Eggs, coat with the Marinade, and leave in the fridge for at least 2-3 hours. The longer they are marinated, the saltier they get. *Note: I recommend to use a plastic bag, so that Eggs can be marinated more evenly.
  4. *Note: DO NOT waste the Marinade. You can use it for cooking.
