Easy Marinated Eggs Recipe for Beginners


Marinated eggs are a tasty treat that’s super easy to make. This blog will walk you through how to prepare them with simple steps and ingredients. Perfect for a quick snack or a unique addition to your meals!

Recipe Details

Marinated eggs are eggs soaked in a mixture of soy sauce, water, and other flavorful ingredients. This process gives the eggs a savory taste and a slightly tender texture.


To make marinated eggs, you’ll need:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup of soy sauce
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • Optional: spices like garlic, ginger, or chili flakes for extra flavor

Preparation Steps

  1. Boil the eggs: Put the eggs in a pot of water. Make sure there’s enough water to cover the eggs. Bring the water to a boil and let the eggs cook for about 9 minutes.
  2. Cool the eggs: Once boiled, take the eggs out of the hot water and put them into ice water. This stops them from cooking more and makes them easier to peel.
  3. Peel the eggs: Gently crack the shells and peel them off. Be careful to keep the eggs whole.
  4. Make the marinade: In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, water, sugar, and salt. Stir until the sugar and salt are totally dissolved. You can add other spices now if you like.
  5. Marinate the eggs: Put the peeled eggs into the marinade. Make sure they are completely covered in the liquid. Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge. Let the eggs sit in the marinade for at least 12 hours.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • For more flavor, marinate the eggs for up to 3 days. The longer they soak, the stronger the flavor.
  • Try different spices like star anise or bay leaves for a unique taste.
  • Use less soy sauce and add some water if you find the flavor too strong.

Serving Suggestions

Serve marinated eggs with rice, noodles, or as part of a salad. They also make a great snack just on their own!
