        1. Lightly boil some beef in a soy sauce/water base with some sliced garlic, hot green and red chili peppers, and crushed toasted sesame seed.
          Take the beef out when tender and shred it.
          Put the peeled eggs in the resulting broth and simmer for a few minutes.
          Let it cool, add the beef back in, then let it sit covered in the fridge for a few hours or over night.
          Makes a great accompaniment to almost any style steamed or fried rice.

          1. At our house we usually peel them, slice a couple in a bowl, add extra virgin olive oil, oregano, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste and then sop up the olive oil and lemon with bread.
