Not to over-state the obvious, but the ingredients are:

  • Large eggs
  • Ice-cold water

Steamed Eggs Instructions

  • Place just one inch of water in a pan suffiently-sized to allow for just one layer of eggs. You do not want the eggs to be covered over with the water, you are steaming them, not boiling them.
  • Bring the water to a boil.
  • Carefully add the eggs, trying not to drop them in too hard.
  • Cover and continue to boil.
  • Start your timer for seven minutes.
  • While the eggs are steaming, prepare a bowl of ice water.
  • When the time is up, quickly remove the eggs to the ice water bath.
  • Allow the eggs to chill for several minutes in the ice water bath.
  • Crack open and peel the eggs or reserve in shell for later use.
