There are so many different ways to cook eggs— from fried to scrambled, baked to hardboiled—and you may think you have tried them all. One of the easiest ways to cook eggs is also one of the least common and least well-known. Steaming eggs is a traditional method in Korea and we were inspired by this simple way to cook eggs. We developed this recipe for Korean Steamed Eggs with Asian flavors in mind, but the technique could easily be used with any ingredients you have on hand or flavors you prefer. Once you have the technique down, you can add almost anything to them to make single servings of steamed eggs for any meal of the day!
• 6 NestFresh Eggs
• 1 teaspoon fish sauce
• 1/2 cup chopped vegetables of your choice (bok choy, broccoli, spinach, etc)
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 4 green onions, chopped
• 1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
• Soy sauce to serve
1. Crack the egg into a medium bowl and beat them until the yolks and whites are thoroughly mixed.
2. Add the fish sauce, vegetables, salt, and pepper to the eggs and mix until combined.
3. Pour the mixture into ramekins, dividing equally until each is about 3/4 full.
4. Place about an inch of hot water into a large pot.
5. Carefully place the filled ramekins in the pot, keeping water from getting into the egg mixture.
6. Cover the pot and heat over medium heat for about 12 minutes, until the egg is set.
7. Carefully remove the ramekins from the hot water.
8. Top the steamed eggs with sesame seeds and green onions.
