Marbled Tea Eggs

Tea eggs AKA marbled eggs are a savory treat with a beautiful marbled exterior. The trick to this traditional Chinese recipe is cracking the egg after you hard-boil it, then steeping it in a dark marinade. The marinade will seep into the cracks, giving the egg a marbled appearance when you peel the shell to serve. The flavors of the marinade infuse the egg, making this a flavorful treat.
If you can boil water and throw things in the water, then this recipe is in your grasp. This also is a family-friendly recipe, where children can help put the ingredients together or crack eggs without getting involved with boiling water.
