Laziest Homemade "Ramen Egg"

I’ve always liked the ramen kind of egg, but I know making one requires overnight seasoning. Being as lazy as I can be, I just wanted the simplest way to achieve the “solid outside, runny inside” kind of egg without having to wait a night.

So after some Google work, here’s what I did.

1) Put egg straight from fridge into boiling water.
2) Use low heat. Make sure egg is in center of the bowl.
3) After about 7 minutes, transfer egg directly into ice water.
4) Leave it for 2 – 3 minutes.
5) Peel egg and eat.
