Weekend Cooking: Soy Sauce Eggs
March 12, 2011 28 Comments
Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. It is hosted by Beth Fish Reads.
When Tes posted her recipe for Soy Sauce Eggs last week, I was immediately interested in preparing them myself. I waited a few days, though, to fit them into the weekly menu.
The full recipe you can read on Tes’ blog.
You can use these eggs as a replacement for meat and eat them with rice and vegetables. There was enough liquid to serve as a sauce for the rice.
What I liked about the recipe, besides cooking with eggs, was that it uses Chines five spices powder. I had bought some a while ago, for a recipe that I ended up not making, so this was my chance to use it. I didn’t realise how delicious it would smell! It’s sweet and has a really pleasant smell. Nothing like other spices.
The recipe uses hard-boiled eggs, ginger, garlic, the five spices powder, soy sauce, sugar, and chicken stock (I used vegetable stock).
Just let it simmer all for a while and you get a delicious egg/sauce combination. We ate this with pandan rice (a slightly sticky rice) and green beans.
We really enjoyed this and, unlike some other recipes we tried out recently, this one is “to be repeated”, according to my sons.
What new recipe did you try recently? Was it a great success?
