Have you tried Mayak Eggs (마약계란) before? These eggs are soft-boiled and then marinated in a sweet, spicy soy sauce. It’s delicious as a side dish or served over a bed of steamed rice.

What are Mayak Eggs?

Mayak literally means drug — meaning that these eggs are seriously addictively tasty!

Mayak eggs are soft-boiled eggs marinated in a sweet, spicy, savory soy sauce.

What you’ll need to make Mayak Eggs:

  • Eggs
  • Green onions
  • Garlic
  • Thai chili peppers
  • Sugar
  • Soy sauce
  • Water
  • Roasted sesame seeds

How to make this at home:

Let’s make soft-boiled eggs

Bring a large pot of water (just enough water to cover eggs) to a boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, carefully add your eggs to the boiling water.

Cover the pot with a lid and allow the eggs to cook for 7 minutes. Once the eggs have cooked for 7 minutes, remove the eggs from the pot and place them in an ice-water bath.

Peel the eggs and set them aside.

Now, for the soy marinade

In a glass container, add sugar, soy sauce, and water. Stir to combine.

Add the chopped green onion, minced garlic, chopped Thai peppers, roasted sesame seeds, and peeled soft-boiled eggs.

Stir to combine and to make sure the eggs are fully submerged.

Chill the eggs in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, but overnight is best!

Serve them as a side dish or over freshly steamed rice. Enjoy!
