Soy Sauce Eggs (Shoyu Tamago)
I had never heard of Soy Sauce Eggs (Shoyu Tamago a Japenese cuisine) but I just had to try them as I love hard boiled eggs and soy sauce. Most of the recipes I saw on line had more ingredients in the recipe like sugar and vinegar. I really liked this recipe as it only has the soy sauce for flavor. When taking a bite of these eggs your tongue gets a burst of the salty soy sauce, just like you salted your egg . This was a real treat and we all loved it!
Hard boil (or soft boil) your eggs then peel them.
In a small sauce pan add the soy sauce
and bring it to a boil over medium
heat, remove from the heat.
Add the eggs and using a rubber spatula or
rubber spoon, roll the eggs carefully in the soy
sauce until they are as salty as you would like,
I rolled mine for about 5 minutes. Remove
the eggs and pat them dry with a paper towel.
Slice them in half lengthwise and serve or add
them to another dish such as ramen and enjoy!
Eggs can be stored in a covered container
in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Are very common here and I must admit I enjoy them 😉
Me too now that I know what they are. Lol
You’ve done a great job with your boiled eggs – no black ring around the yolk.
Thanks that’s due to my wonderful egg steamer. They actual peel well too, best thing I ever bought.
Never heard of that piece of equipment not that I boil many eggs
It’s a wonderful combination!
Yes it was delicious. I had never heard of these and I love anything with soy sauce. Even my husband loved them.
That looks easy. I wonder if it would work with miso…
Not sure, I never had miso but give it a try you may create an amazing taste with it.
update -it is an amazing taste, but it doesn’t stick like soy
If you try it let me know how it turned out.
Thank you madam for this easy but new recipe ,I call it new because few people have tried with Soy sauce.I am sure it tastes great without even a pinch of salt .Take care 😊😊🌹
You’re welcome and you’re right, no salt is needed!
So nice of you madam.🙏😊🌹
I’ve gotta give these a try!
They were so good GP!
These eggs with sauce look delicious. I’ve never done these, so I’ll try to do.
They were so good Ultra. I always salt my eggs but with these the soy sauce made them perfect and no salt needed.
Super easy. Thanks, Diane! I’d be tempted to add other stuff to the soy sauce, like ginger, garlic, or curry. Or all three. 😉 (I think my taste buds have ADD.)
I wouldn’t mind trying other spices next time, just not sugar. I would definitely try ginger and garlic with the soy sauce too. I really liked these! Thank you!
Diane, you discovered one of my comfort foods! I call them marinated egg. Growing up, my mom made these on the pressure cooker with fatty bits of pork and black fungus. It is so tasty (and fatty) and goes so well with a bowl of hot white rice and a cold can of Coke. We can never have just one egg!
So glad you discovered these and your recipe looks great!
That sounds amazing, I would try that in a heartbeat Ab and I can see why it is one of your comfort food!
Here’s a sample recipe from a quick Google search. Lots more out there. I am sure you will put your own creative and delicious spin on it. https://rasamalaysia.com/braised-pork-belly-in-soy-sauce-tau-yew-bak/
I’m really hungry now! Thanks Diane! 😆😆😆
OMG that sounds amazing, thank you and I saved it! I’m hungry too, my grandson is home from school with a cold. Making a new mushroom dish for our lunch. Have a great day!
Well Diane – you never have plain Jane meals – you sure know how to spice things up!
I love trying something new all the time and there are so many ways and things to cook. Sometimes I think I have run out of them then poof, 5 more pop up. These were really good.
I’ve only had soy sauce in Chop Suey.
Oh wow I really wish you lived closer!
Yes, me too Diane!!!
sounds great. I use a lot of Soy sauce on my food.
Me too!!!! I made mushrooms today with it too. Lol Thanks!
Me too it gives food the best flavor!
Very easy. I’ll try.
Enjoy we loved them! Have a great day. ❤️

Very interesting, Diane.
If you get a chance try these Angela. I was surprised at how delicious they were.
Wow 😲 … we love eggs and have prepared them in so many different ways – boiled / scrambled / poached, but have never tried it like that! Definitely going to make this easy recipe – thanks Diane!
Thank you and you’re welcome!
I tried one of the recipes with sugar and other ingredients. The eggs were good, but I think I might prefer these ones.
I agree Aspasia, sugar just doesn’t appeal to me with eggs, sometimes simple is best.
There are a lot of non-Japanese producing recipes, so they add things like vinegar which you shouldn’t do. The salt in the soy sauce “cures” the egg, but I would do a soy sauce (kikkoman), mirin, and sake (ginger is optional, also cook off the alcohol). Also I highly suggest you marinate it longer, like 6 hours.
Awesome thank you so much!
Some may only see it as a recipe, but I love that you enjoyed and are sharing and trying a piece of my food culture 👍
I love trying different food cultures. I follow blogs of different cultures but still need to spread my wings more. Thanks again!
Thank you ❤️
