salt egg (shio tama) recipe?

googletrickedme Aug 4, 2009 02:31 PM

I am craving a decent ramen with salt egg but can't find a recipe. These are the salted semi-hard boiled eggs you get with ramen at most ramen places.

Can anyone help me out?

    I've been wanting to make it myself, however, the procedure is quite long. If you do make it, let me know how it turns out. I've seen easier recipes but I love the soft yolk center myself. Check out the recipe below by Chubby Hubby.

      With the fall coming, I have been thinking about noodle dishes, especially ramen and udon and I came across a yakibuta ramen recipe that makes this wonderful egg. The show is called Cooking with Dog (on YouTube with other great Japaneses recipes). They put 2 eggs in room temp water, and boil for 4 minutes and then put the eggs in an ice bath. After peeling the eggs, they then put the eggs in a mixture of soy sauce, sake and mirin (1T each- heated in the microwave for 30 seconds). They let the egg soak in the seasoning over night. She sliced the eggs open with a string and is had a perfectly oozy soft yellow yolk inside. Can't wait to try this. Here's the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wa0um....
