Korean spa eggs
Sunday, March 17, 2019
So the weekend before baby arrived, we went to the local Korean spa. Being 9 months pregnant, I spent more time in the ice room than in the saunas lol. We did enjoy the pool with the pressure jets.
Mostly we went there because it's fun, relaxing, and I wanted kimchi and the noodle-less spicy chicken soup they serve. Unfortunately, they don't do takeout, so I have to go to the spa and pay to enter to get the soup. Seriously, I've tried multiple times to duplicate the recipe here at home and it never tastes as good. I think they have a good depth of flavor in the broth.
I did try a new product I'd never tried before, the spa eggs. They bake them for a long time in the sudatorium and sell them for $3 for 3 eggs. Here's the deal... They are epic. They have a much richer and creamier taste and texture from normal hard boiled eggs.
Unfortunately, with baby, we haven't had a chance to return, so I found a recipe for spa eggs. The recipe follows the rule of 2. You use a pressure cooker and a single layer of eggs. Cook in 2 cups of water with 2 tbsps of water for 2 hrs.
We made them yesterday and they ended up similar to the spa eggs, but lacking some of the flavor depth. They we're still totally worth it. I wonder how they would turn out with 3 hrs in the pressure cooker.
I made an salad for lunch today with the eggs, arugula, cheese, homemade ranch, bacon, avocado, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes. So yummy and filling. I would post a pic, but didn't take one at the time and baby woke in his swing, so he's currently napping on a boppy on my lap.
In any case, if you like eggs I'd definitely recommend trying out spa eggs.
