Korean Sauna Eggs
I used the 2-2-2 method for making my easy Korean eggs. Now, you will find others do a variety of times, but this I found to be an incredible success.
What Are Korean Sauna Eggs
Korean Sauna eggs are a popular snack that you eat while in the Sauna, hence the name. You use regular eggs that go through a long cooking process that gives these eggs their unique brown color.
I found they had a deep roasted flavor that was somewhat nutty. It is a healthy and satisfying snack that is protein packed.
It is so hard to fully explain these eggs, but I will say if you enjoy hard boiled eggs, these will be an incredible treat for yourself.
Are They Hard To Peel
You would almost think with such a long cook time it could leave your eggs hard to peel. But it is the complete opposite. These eggs are insanely to peel. It was incredible how fast they came right out of the shells.
Can I Stack Eggs When Making Instant Pot Sauna Eggs
You do not want to stack your eggs. I did 10 eggs in my 8 quart, and I could have added more if I wanted.
But you just want to make sure to do a single layer of eggs. It won’t work right if you stack them.
Do I Need A Trivet
No, you do not need a trivet to lay your eggs on. They can sit right on the bottom of the Instant Pot and then you can pour your water and salt in.
Some recipes use a trivet but I did mine without and I had no issues at all. It saves time and makes it easy for those who don’t have a trivet.
Do You Eat Warm Or Cold
Both! Now you put them in an ice bath for 2 minutes. You can then peel and devour warm or you can toss them in the fridge and allow them to chill.
Either warm or cold is welcome. You will find it is up to you on what you prefer. I recommend trying one warm and then refrigerate the rest and see what you think.
How To Store
Sauna eggs store pretty well just like hard boiled eggs. To extend the shelf life keep the eggs in the shell until you are ready to eat.
You can store in an airtight container in the fridge. Or if you have a sealable bag you can use one of them as well. Just try to remove as much air as you can.
Let me know what you think of these Instant Pot Korean Eggs! They are such a treat and something different and out of the box to a traditional hard boiled egg.

One reference to Sauna Eggs said that Sauna workers brought eggs to work and put them in the sauna heater to cook while they worked. They were ready to eat at meal time.
