Boiling eggs - Page 4
My local pizza shop that I really like turns out Neapolitan pizzas like this using tipo 00 and some aged Okinawan salt, they taste great and he's begun doing a different pizza of the month - last month was bismarck and then he did a little run of black truffle pizza around Christmas (not very generous with the truffles but it still smelled nice) so I had him put the egg on there too:
I asked him before, 'ever been to Italy?' and he says 'nah, never been.' haha.
I have heard of cooking eggs in a pressure cooker; from what I saw you could make those ajitsuke tamago marinated eggs for ramen very easily this way.
I haven't had ajitsuke tamago in a few years now- I loved those babies in my ramen after a hard night out! Nothing cure a hangover better than ramen. We haven't experimented with making them at home yet- I'll have to ask my wife to make some. (My wife is Japanese and I met her when I lived in Yokohama for 3 years.)
With the price of black truffles I can see why he was a little stingy- but those pies look great!
New method (from Lifehacker): Put eggs on muffin tray,put in 325 degree pre-heated oven for exactly 30 minutes. Seriously boiling eggs in the oven is badass. It cooks most of the sulfur smell out of them, and they have a very nice, almost smoky taste. Delicious.
Like Matt, I dislike egg whites, but my trick is to be sure to get some yolk with every bite, although that's not really a trick, just eating.
edit: Muffin tray isn't necessary, you can put them directly on the rack, I'm just paranoid about spills.
