  • 6 eggs
  • Cold water
  • 2 cups of soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic smashed
  • 2 thai bird chilies smashed
  • 3 inches of ginger cut into coins
  • 4 inches of lemongrass smashed
  • 1/2 cup of vinegar
  • 1 pinch of red chili flakes
  • 1 cup of ice
  • cooked rice optional


  • Start by adding the eggs to a pot. Cover with about 2 inches of cold water, and place on the stove on medium high heat. Bring this to a simmer, then remove from the heat and let them sit in the hot water for 11 minutes.
  • Add another pot to the stove and add the remaining ingredients. Bring this to a boil, then turn off the heat, and let cool.
  • Add cold water to a large bowl and dump in the ice. After the 11 minutes, remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place gently into the ice water. This will allow the eggs to be easily peeled.
  • Carefully peel the eggs and set them aside.
  • Pour the soy sauce mixture into a sealable container large enough to hold the soy sauce mixture, and eggs. Add the eggs into the container. Seal, and place in the refrigerator for a minimum of four days.
  • After four days, take an egg out, and slice in half and serve. Eat it by itself, or serve alongside a bowl of rice.
