Instant Pot Soft-Boiled Ramen Eggs Recipe + Stovetop Method

  • Prep time: 6 hours
  • Cook time: 1 minute
  • Serves: 12

www.foodisafourletterword.com

Ingredients

  • 6 Large Eggs, (do not make less than 6, you can make up to 12 in the Instant Pot)
  • ¼ Cup Japanese Soy Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons Mirin
  • 1 Green Onion, green parts only, chopped
  • ½ Cup Water

Method

  • 1)

    The Instant Pot should be completely cool before cooking eggs. Add 1 Cup of water to the pot – please measure it out because the water amount will effect the cooking time. Place the trivet that came with the Instant Pot into the bottom of the pot and stack the eggs on top of it or you can use an egg rack (do not use a basket). Seal the lid and choose Low Pressure for 1 minute, when the time is up, set a timer and wait 2 minutes 30 seconds before switching the knob to venting – any delay can over cook the eggs. Once the pin drops, open the lid.

    STOVETOP METHOD: Fill a pot with enough water to completely cover eggs. Bring it to a hard boil and gently place the eggs into the pot. Set a timer for 6 minutes 20 seconds and gently stir the eggs in the pot for about 10 seconds – this helps center the yolks.

  • 2)

    Immediately place the eggs into a large bowl filled with ice water for 3 minutes then carefully peel the eggs. In a bowl, combine ¼ Cup Japanese Soy Sauce, 3 Tablespoons Mirin, ½ Cup Water and chopped Green Onions. Place the eggs into a large ziplock bag or a small tupperware container, add the soy sauce marinade, seal and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight. Move the eggs around half way through so they get marinated evenly.  When ready to serve, you can put them into simmering hot water for about 30 seconds to warm them up. Enjoy!

    *If you made my Instant Pot Chashu Recipe, you can use the leftover cooking liquid from that recipe as the marinade for these eggs.
