We have a flock of laying hens and usually an abundance of eggs. I'm always trying to find new ways to prepare them. Oh man are they good! It's a unique twist to the more traditional pickled egg recipes out there. These are great on salads, or just as is.

  • Peel eggs and place in a quart-size Mason jar.

  • Combine soy sauce, water, sugar, minced onion, and sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool briefly, about 5 minutes. Pour over eggs in the jar.

  • Refrigerate eggs until flavors are absorbed, at least 6 hours.

Cook's Note:

If eggs are fresh, add a 1/4 teaspoon baking soda to the water in step 1. This makes the eggs easier to peel.

Happy with the results. Only change is to Steam the eggs. I have chickens and Fresh eggs can be difficult to peel. Bring water to boil, add eggs to steamer, reduce heat to medium. Steam 13 minutes, remove eggs to Ice Bath. When cool enough to handle, peel. Read More

Very good. First if you do not already cook hard boiled eggs this way you should. The advice and technique is spot on. Second I enjoy the teriyaki flavor with egg and this recipe does not fail. As a variation I might try mixing in some apple vinegar to pickle the eggs and add some more tang. Maybe add some ginger. I m getting excited with all the possibilities! Read More

Delicious! I love this twist on the traditional pickled eggs. I only let them marinate for the 6 hours called for (I couldn't wait to try them lol) but I have the leftovers in the fridge and I can't wait to try them tomorrow as I know they will be even better! I will be making these often YUM!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Great to have a few of the teriyaki eggs in the fridge for salads, egg salad or really impressive deviled eggs. I've even been known to eat them right out of the fridge as a snack. Great as a change from eating just plain eggs. I cook 6-7 eggs in the instapot then quickly cool and peel the eggs. Cook the soy sauce and other ingredients at the same time then put in the jar to cool with one or two ice cubes. Put the peeled eggs in mixture right away then may add a little water to make sure eggs are covered in jar. Quick and easy. Have not tried to re-use marinade but expect might by OK. Read More
