Oh! To follow up on the previous post, the corporate sponsored Instant Pot Facebook page had a contest to give away a 6-quart Duo Evo Plus to three winners, and I was one of them! So, while I didn't get the 8-quart model of the Duo Evo Plus, I do now have four Instant Pots.

However, since I'm not a fan of the interface on the Ultra model, and it is in practically brand new condition due to it barely being used, it is currently boxed up with all of its manuals and accessories and will be a Chr-stmas gift down the road.

So far I have only done the water test in the new Duo Evo Plus, but doing that has already impressed me.

Anyway, in other Instant Pot news...

So, apparently there is a snack called Korean 7 hour Sauna eggs, which can be made in the Instant Pot in 3 hours. I decided to give them a try. They're definitely different in flavor than a typical hard cooked egg. I liked them, but want to try pickling them to see if I'll like them even more.

I did a photo essay on Facebook of the process, should you want to check it out. Here is the final photo, showing a whole peeled Korean Sauna egg and one sliced in half.



The color change of the whites is due to the long cook time under pressure in the shell. There is no soy sauce or other marinade ingredients on the egg.

That's interesting. How does the texture compare to the regular version?

To my pallet, the taste and texture of the whites were pretty much the same. I cooked them on high pressure, per the instructions, so the whites were a little more rubbery than my standard hard cooked eggs I do for 2 minutes on low pressure followed by a 7 minute Natural Pressure Release.

The yolks were actually still somewhat creamy. I totally expected them to be like sawdust. But the flavor was very different. Almost a smokey roasted flavor.

The yolks did have a green ring around them. But any sulfuric taste was either covered up by or merged with the smokiness of the yolks themselves.

I do think I'll try them on low pressure for the 2.5 hours next time I make them. Just to see if I can get the same flavor profile with more tender whites.

I plopped two of the Korean Sauna eggs in to planned over dill pickle juice. We'll see how they turn out in a week or so.

Never really been into pickled stuff, but the regular versions sounds like it'd be good with an English muffin.

Sounds like a plan, Sorus!

I added one of the Korean Sauna eggs to my tuna salad. I honestly did not notice a difference in flavor from a standard hard cooked egg addition to it. I know both SD and dam-sel had some of the tuna as well, but I have not heard if they noticed a smokiness to it, either.

I was content to not notice the egg in the tuna.

I made another batch of the Korean Sauna eggs in my Instant Pot yesterday. I wanted to get the whites a little more tender. When I make regular hard cooked eggs, I do this successfully by using Low pressure rather than High pressure, so I applied this to this batch. However, I think I overcompensated. I decided since they cook so long, that since Soup is a gentler cycle, I would do them on Soup low pressure, rather than on Manual/Pressure Cook low pressure.

The roasted flavor is there, and the whites are definitely more tender. But while my photos are not well lit, I think the difference in color is still apparent.

Next time, I'll try Manual/Pressure Cook low pressure, and see if there is further difference.

I'm interested in seeing which products will be featured for Prime Days...
