Smokey Eggs (Talgyal Changjorim)

Contributed by: Barbara ~~referenced from the Long Island Korean Culture Day Camp, 1983.

One of our favorites:


  • 8 eggs **
  • 5 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 TBLS sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • black pepper to garnish


Boil eggs about 10 minutes and peel. Add soy sauce, garlic, sugar, water and eggs to a small pot and simmer approx. 20 minutes. Turn the eggs periodically to obtain an even color. Allow to cool, cut in half, garnish with pepper & arrange on lettuce leaves.

**Note: I can usually do a dozen eggs with this recipe - not just 8.
