Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 35 Minutes
For Soy Marinated Jammy Eggs:
- 4-5 large eggs
- Dash of salt or vinegar
- ¾ c. mirin
- ¼ c. regular soy sauce
- ¼ c. dark soy sauce (if you can’t find, substitute with an equal amount of regular soy sauce plus 1 tbs brown sugar)
- 3 tbsp. butter or neutral oil like canola (divided)
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
- 1 small onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
- ½ c. frozen peas
- 3-4 c. cooked white rice, cooled
- 3 green onions, thinly sliced
- 3-4 tbsp. soy sauce
- 2 tsp. oyster sauce (optional)
- ½ tsp. toasted sesame oil
For Soy Marinated Jammy Eggs:
- Fill your Equal Parts Small Pot with water, adding some salt or a little vinegar to the water (to prevent egg whites from running out if there’s any cracking of egg while cooking). Bring the water to a boil over high heat with the lid on. Then lower the heat to medium or high, so that the water is still bubbling but not a rolling boil (to avoid cracking eggs).
- Lower each egg gently into the water, as soon as all eggs are immersed in water, place the lid back on and immediately set a timer for 6 ½ minutes for a set white, jammy egg yolk.
- While the eggs are cooking, combine all ingredients for marinade in one of your Equal Parts Prep Bowls, whisk well to combine.
- When the timer is up, remove eggs immediately and place them in a bowl with cold running water for at least 2-3 minutes. Carefully peel the eggs by gently tapping them on a hard surface to create little cracks. Once peeled, put the marinade in a bowl or container where eggs can be placed along the bottom in one single layer. Let eggs marinate for at least 2 hrs or 8-12 hrs for best results, up to 24 hrs.
- After eggs are marinated, place them in a separate air-tight container and store in the fridge for up to 4 days. Marinade can also be kept in an air-tight container, stored in the fridge and re-used on chicken, beef or tofu for up to 3 weeks.
For Fried Rice:
- Heat ½ tablespoon of butter or oil in your Equal Parts Big Pan over medium to high heat. Add beaten eggs and cook until scrambled. Remove to a plate and set aside.
- Add an additional tablespoon of butter or oil to pan and heat until melted. Add vegetables, garlic, and ginger. Sauté for about 5-10 minutes until carrots and onions are softened.
- Increase heat to high and add an additional tablespoons of butter or oil and immediately add cooked rice, green onions, soy sauce, and oyster sauce (if using).
- Mix to combine and continue stirring for an additional 3 minutes to fry rice. Add scrambled egg, using a spoon to incorporate into rice. Remove from heat and stir in sesame oil to combine.
- Transfer rice to platter or your Equal Parts Prep Bowls and serve immediately, top with Soy Marinated Jammy Eggs.
