Soy Sauce Eggs. Soft boiled eggs marinated in a Chinese Five Spice soy vinegar broth. Delicious, easy to make and great as a side dish.
I used to have soy sauce eggs growing up with my meals and I always wanted to share how to make them here on my blog.
These Asian soy sauce eggs are one of my favourite ways to eat this delicious protein source, thanks to its savoury taste.
I’ve also partnered with Conestoga Farms to bring you this recipe! Their eggs are wholesome, local and produced by proud Ontario farmers and their families. I am a huge fan of their eggs, especially their Free Run Omega-3 eggs. An easy and delicious way to get in those important nutrients.
Conestoga Farms achieves this by feeding their hens an all-grain diet, enriched with flax seed, a source of DHA omega-3 polyunsaturates. Each large free run omega-3 egg contains 0.4 g of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. You can read more on their company below.
What is a soy sauce egg?
It is a soft-boiled egg that is then marinated in a broth that contains soy sauce, Chinese Five Spice, vinegar, sugar and water. The combination of this broth really elevates an egg to the next level. The white exterior is salty but the interior yolk is creamy – perfectly balancing the saltiness of the egg.
Typically, these eggs are eaten with rice, ramen or any noodle of your choice. Sometimes they are eaten as a snack in Asia. They are also wonderful for meal prep as they can stay refrigerated up to 4 days in the broth in a sealed container.
What’s the difference between a Chinese Tea egg vs Soy Sauce Egg?
The difference is the tea leaves as well as the brown and white crackled design on the Chinese Tea Egg. Whereas the soy sauce boiled egg is marinated without tea leaves and the egg is completely coloured in brown.

You will need the following ingredients:
1/4 + 1/8 cup soy sauce
2 cups water
1/2 tsp Chinese Five Spice
1 tbsp sugar
1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
How to make Soy Sauce Eggs
Bring your eggs to room temperature by soaking them in warm water for 5 mins. Then in a pot of hot boiling water, gently lower your eggs one by one.
Boil them for 6 minutes over high heat.
In the meantime, prepare an ice bath for your eggs. Once the eggs are cooked, remove and transfer to ice bath. Crack and peel your eggs. Place them in a small resealable container.
In a small bowl, whisk together your marinade ingredients in a small pot. Bring it to boil and then simmer for 5 minutes uncovered. Allow this broth to cool down until it’s cool to touch to prevent your eggs from cooking further.
Pour the cool broth over your eggs. Seal and store in the fridge to marinate for 6 hours for best flavour.
When ready to serve, slice them in half and enjoy!
