    For a runny egg, boil for 6 to 7 minutes and cool in ice water immediately afterwards.

Soft-Boiled vs. Hard-Boiled Eggs

Texture: Soft whites and sauce-like yolk of a soft boiled egg bring a great texture to a dish just as much as the firmer whites and crumbly yolks of a hard boiled egg.

Cook Time: Soft boiled eggs are sometimes referred to as 3 or 4 minute eggs – the less time you leave the egg in boiling water, the less set the whites will be. In contrast, hard boiled eggs generally take 7-8 minutes. These cook times reflect room temperature eggs. You could either pull eggs out of the fridge an hour before prep, place them in tepid water for about 5 minutes, or simply adjust the cook time. Just take note that it varies depending on which recipe you may be using. So, if you can’t seem to get your eggs right even after closely following a recipe, the reason may simply boil down to where you store your eggs. 

Shelf-life: The shelf-life is just 2 days in the fridge; on the other hand, hard-boiled eggs can be stored for up to a week.

Shoyu vs. Chinese Soy Sauce 

The umami-rich Japanese-style soy shoyu contains only fermented soybeans, wheat, salt and water. Yet, through a complex brewing process, hundreds of flavor profiles emerge. On the other hand, Chinese soy sauces generally contain at least 12 or so ingredients; however, they do not contain wheat, making it more a popular choice for those avoiding gluten.
