Today I want to share an easy and simple side dish recipe – Korean style braised eggs.

What are Korean Style Braised Eggs

Korean style braised eggs (Dalgyal Jorim, 달걀 조림 or Gyeran Jorim, 계란 조림) are a popular Korean side dish made with soy sauce based brine and hard boiled eggs.

Some might call it a Korean version of soy sauce eggs, but I can’t give you the taste comparison, as I’ve only tried the Korean version.

Korean braised eggs have a well balanced sweet and salty taste, and are highly addictive.

It is a very popular side dish for a Korean lunch box as well.

When I offered a bite of this egg to my little toddler she really loved it. Within a minute, she gobbled up a whole egg. It was a such a pleasing moment. 🙂

I really hope you enjoy my recipe as much as my daughter did!

2. When the mixture in the sauce pan is rolling boiling (3-4 mins into the cooking), take out the green onion with some tongs and reduce the heat to medium.

3. Add the hard-boiled eggs into the sauce pan gently and simmer until there are about 1/2 cup worth of the sauce left in the sauce pan (about 15 mins into the cooking). -While the eggs are being simmered, lightly roll them around in the sauce pan.

5. Take out the eggs and slice them into a bite size and serve. (They can be served warm or cold but I think they taste better when slightly cold.)
