Quail Eggs

But first, let's talk a bit about quail eggs. Have you ever seen them? They're so tiny and cute! Quail eggs are smaller than chicken eggs and have pretty speckled shells. Even though they're small, they're packed with lots of good stuff, like vitamins and minerals, that help keep our bodies healthy and strong.

Now, let's get started with our quail egg gyeran-jangjorim recipe! Here's what you'll need:


20-25 quail eggs
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1/4 cup sugar or honey (you can choose which one you like best)
4 cloves garlic, minced (smashed into tiny pieces)
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1-2 dried red chili peppers (optional, only if you like spicy food)
1 green onion, chopped (for making our dish look pretty)


Boil the quail eggs: First, we need to cook the quail eggs. Put them in a pot with water and heat it until the water starts to bubble. Turn down the heat and cook the eggs for 3-4 minutes. After that, put the eggs in cold water to cool them down. When they're not too hot, peel the shells off.

Make the sauce:

In a different pot, mix the soy sauce, water, sugar or honey, garlic, onion, and dried red chili peppers (if you want it spicy). Stir everything until the sugar or honey dissolves.

Cook the sauce:

Heat the sauce until it starts to bubble, then turn down the heat and let it cook for about 10 minutes. This helps all the flavors mix together.

Add the eggs:

Now, put the peeled quail eggs in the sauce. Make sure they're all covered by the sauce. Let them cook for 15-20 minutes. Don't forget to turn the eggs every now and then so they get an even color and taste.

To serve, put some quail eggs on a plate and sprinkle chopped green onions on top. This makes the dish look extra pretty! Enjoy your quail egg gyeran-jangjorim with rice or other delicious sides.
