Serves 4-6


  • Eggs, 8
  • Soy Sauce, 1 tablespoon
  • Sesame Oil, 1 tablespoon
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Water, 1 small bowl
  • Parsley, to garnish


  • Bowl, 1
  • Steaming Rack, 1


  1. Beat eggs into the bowl, season with soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and pepper and mix well. Add a small bowl of water and stir well.
  2. Add hot boiling water into a Thermos® Shuttle Chef® inner pot till half full. Place in the steaming rack and bowl with egg mixture onto the rack. 
  3. Place the inner pot under medium heat, boil for 2 minutes and simmer for another 2 minutes. 
  4. Close the inner pot's lid and transfer it into the Shuttle Chef® outer pot. Let it sit aside for 15 to 20 minutes, for vacuum insulation steaming.
  5. Before serving, garnish with parsley.



  • This recipe is based on using a 4.5L Thermos® Shuttle Chef®. Ingredients and tools can be adjusted or replaced for different Shuttle Chef® inner pot sizes and capacities. 
  • Both steaming rack and bowl have to fit well into the Shuttle Chef® inner pot when the lid is closed, and the bowl must be easily placed into the Shuttle Chef® when filled with contents.)


  • For a softer texture, add a small bowl of soy milk before steaming.
  • For a harder texture, you may leave the steamed eggs in the outer pot for 30 to 40 minutes and serve immediately.
  • It is recommended to remove the bowl from the Shuttle Chef® outer pot before serving, to prevent it from cooking (even when the lid is opened). Please wear proper safety kitchen gloves as the bowl will be hot.
