Jangjorim is Korean dish consisting mainly of boiled or braised beef and soy sauce. This version uses quail eggs.




  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the quail eggs, and boil for about 10 minutes.
  2. Carefully drain the eggs, and cool in cold water.
  3. Peel the cooled eggs.
  4. Combine the water, soy sauce, sugar, wine, garlic, and ginger in a saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add the eggs to the pot, and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.
  6. Add the peppers, and cook just for 1–2 minutes.

Notes, tips, and variations

  • Adding 1 tablespoon each of salt and vinegar to the boiling water makes the eggs easier to peel.
  • Don't overcook after adding the chili pepper—it will get too soft.
