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!

  1. This is such a good recipe! I make these all the time, to either include in a quick noodle dish or just as a snack. Highly recommend!

  2. This was delicious! I ate all 6 eggs in one sitting :D. I made a couple edits to the recipe. When I hard-boiled the egg, I did so just enough to peel the shell (with the yolk still liquidy presumably). I then added cayenne pepper because I enjoy spicy, and increased the simmering time for almost 1 hour to get the flavor soaked into the eggs. Next time, I plan to increased the time further.

  3. Thank you for this great recipe! I made these for about 50 people at a retreat and got so many positive comments! Mirin is hard to get where I cooked, but the recipe still turned out well with a bit of white wine vinegar instead.

  4. These look delicious, I’m really looking forward to trying them! I was wondering why these keep for so much shorter in the fridge than regular hard boiled eggs (which are typically fine for a week)?

  5. Yum! These take me back to my childhood when my Grandma would make them. My husband is addicted to these. He eats them with his ramen or straight when he needs a quick protein snack. TY for sharing. We make these so often I buy twice as many eggs than used to.

  6. I’ve already tried this twice. I don’t know how you get the liquid down to 2-3 Tbsp after 10 minutes of simmering on medium. My patience gets lost and I just start eating them. It really does seel like a lot of simering liquid. The eggs are amazing, I’ve never gone through cartons so fast.

    • Hi Christine, I’m glad to hear that you’re enjoying your eggs so much with this recipe. It’s quite addictive, isn’t it? I know the simmering liquid is a lot for 6 eggs (which means you could actually add more boiled eggs if you would like). I’m pretty positive that it was about 10-12 mins mark to get the liquid simmer down to 2-3 Tbsp. But I also remember that I was multi-tastking at that time so I could mixed up something (either the fire power or the actual simmering time). I’ll let you know when I make this soon to be really precise. 🙂

    • Hi Christine, I just made this yesterday and you’re right. The liquid is about 1/2 cup not 2 to 3 Tbsp. I must have simmered it on high heat initially. I just updated my recipe accordingly as well. Thanks for your feedback!
