Laziest Homemade "Ramen Egg" 15/03/2012 Homemade 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. My first attempt was considerably a success! But the peeling of egg came as a huge challenge (I think it’s quite obvious) because I was so afraid I’ll crush the fragile egg. And I had it the soft-boiled egg style – with just pepper and dark soy sauce. Simple yet fulfilling. Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
