Soy-Marinated Eggs (Mayak Eggs)

Delicious Soy-Marinated Eggs are the perfect tasty topper for a warm bed of rice. When you bust the soft boiled egg the yolk will spill its heavenly rich flavor over the steaming bed of white rice. This soy marinade is savory and delicious. Best part is you can keep reusing it until you have had your fill of tasty eggs. This is a simple and affordable way to add a bit of sophistication to Avery simple dish.

When I first presented this to my family, it was met with curiosity. But when they busted the eggs and took a bite, it turned a normal almost boring meal into a visually pleasing and tastebud rewarding experience. This is a great technique to prep for meals during the week to help when you are running short on time. The longer the eggs stay in the marinade the more saturated with savory flavor they become. As you remove eggs continue to add fresh ones tot he marinade and have protein at the ready for those times the youngsters have to feed them selves. Watch the short video, follow the simple instructions and create your very own foodliciousd incredible edible egg.
