Ramen Egg (Ajitsuke Tamago) Made In Cosori Pressure Cooker – Test #1
If you watched my latest unboxing video you will know that I received a Cosori 6 Quart 8-in-1 Pressure Cooker to review. I wanted to make my own ramen broth as a test but realized before I do that, I needed to make a soft boiled egg in the pressure cooker because I needed to marinate it overnight to turn it into a Ajitsuke Tamago ramen egg. There was quite the learning curve but that is the fun of doing product reviews.
Here is a quick video on how I made the egg.
Add 1 cup of water to pressure cooker cooking base.
Put raw eggs on steamer rivet inside pressure cooker. OK, I LOVE this steamer trivet that comes with the Cosori! Much better than “the other guy’s…”
Seal. Select manual mode. Select low pressure for 5 minutes.
I love how you can see the Cosori “thinking” as it is building pressure. I also like that it does not start automatically. You can play with the buttons, figuring out pressure and cook time without it just suddenly starting.
Do a quick release.
Put eggs in cold water for 30 seconds. Rinse under cold water for 5 seconds. Refill bowl with cold water and let eggs chill for 3 minutes.
Careful crack and remove shell. Add to marinade.
At this point, I had no idea if I had cooked it properly but it was feeling pretty darn firm…
Whisk together 1/3 cup water 2 tbsp Asian cooking wine (or sake if you have it), 1 tbsp mirin, 1 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp soy sauce. Cover with a paper towel. Let marinade in fridge a minimum of 4 hours to overnight.
Remove from marinade and slice in half.
Doh!!! So what went wrong???
I pushed the Cosori release lever the wrong way and as a result, the pressure released WAY too slowly, giving time for the egg to become hard boiled.
I tried it again and this time went the right way (to the left) and also remembered to marinade those bamboo shoots with the egg.
Perfection!!! This time it came out beautifully, confirming that the problem was with me, not the pressure cooker.
So that was the first part to my product testing and ramen-making in the Cosori pressure cooker. I am really liking it so far. There are so many options to choose from when it comes to settings plus manual mode is much easier to use than my other pressure cooker.
A good start and that egg? Unbelievably delicious!
