Soy Sauce Eggs

DSC_0008

I made soy sauce chicken last night and had some leftover stock, so I made soy sauce braised eggs. The soy infused stock can be used over and over again for chicken, eggs, tofu and so on.  The more it is reused, the more it gains in depth of flavor.

The process is really simple – put de-shelled hard-boiled eggs in simmering soy sauce broth and then steep overnight. The eggs can be eaten reheated or cold.

Braised Soy Sauce Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 12 hard boiled eggs, shell removed
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups soy sauce (I used Kikkoman)
  • 2 tsp. 5 spice powder
  • 4 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 dashes white pepper

Directions:

1) Bring water, soy sauce, 5 spice powder, brown sugar and white pepper to a boil in a large pot. Add de-shelled, hard-boiled eggs and simmer on low for 20 minutes. Turn off heat and steep for at least 30 minutes (or put the entire pot into the fridge overnight). Cut eggs in half or into wedges and serve warm or cold, and spoon braising liquid over them.

*You can save the braising liquid in a large tupperware container and re-use for chicken or eggs. I will be using mine 3 times so far. If you aren’t using the liquid for awhile, you can store it in the freezer.

I got the idea to make this zombie head cheese from Not Martha. Hers looks a lot better than mine though, but I was pretty pleased with it, this being my first attempt to make a melted head with pub cheese.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Smear cheese all over head, starting with the fine details first (eyes, nose, etc.) Stick sliced olives in eye sockets. Cut gum in pieces and press into mouth. Serve on platter with crackers.

I can’t wait to scare my husband with this when he opens up the fridge tomorrow morning. Muhahaha…

Oh and since the skull is a cookie jar, I’m serving chicken wing dip inside it’s head, since it sorta looks like brains…
