About this recipe: This recipe is for enjoying the texture of eggs at the most tendermost but easiest level. It has the sweetest aroma I have ever tasted in eggs using the least ingredients.


Serves: 2 

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup (250ml) cooled chicken or fish stock
  • 1 dash sake
  • 1/2 teaspoon soya sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped cooked chicken breast meat
  • 1 shiitake mushroom, sliced into strips
  • 2 sprigs fresh parsley, for garnish

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs gently while slowly pouring in the chicken stock, sake, and soy sauce. Divide the mushroom and chicken evenly between two small tea cups. Pour the egg mixture into each cup until filled.
  2. Bring about 2.5cm of water to a boil in a steamer or saucepan. Reduce heat to a simmer, and place cups into the steamer. Cover, and steam for 12 minutes, or until egg is firm but soft and silky like tofu. Garnish each cup with a sprig of parsley, and serve.
