Recipe's preparation

    TM 31 Poached Egg
  1. 1. Place steamer basket and 1.8ltrs water into the thermomix bowl. Heat 8 min 70deg speed 3.

    2. Place eggs (I used 59gm xl eggs from the fridge) carefully into the steamer basket.

    3. Cook 11 minutes 70deg speed 3.

    4. Carefully crack the egg on the pointy end and slight peel back some shell. The egg will appear poached and should slide out the shell. Scoop out if any remaining egg white from the shell with a spoon. Yum!

     

  2. TM5 Poached Egg
  3. 1. Place steamer basket and 2ltrs water into the thermomix bowl. Heat 7 min 70deg speed 3.5.

    2. Place eggs (I used 59gm xl eggs from the fridge) carefully into the steamer basket.

    3. Cook 12.5 minutes 70deg speed 3.5.

    4. Carefully crack the egg on the pointy end and slight peel back some shell. The egg will appear poached and should slide out the shell. Scoop out if any remaining egg white from the shell with a spoon. Yum!

     

  4. Sourced method from Alyce Alexandra

     

    This cooking method is known as Sous Vide (slow cooked). I've cut the egg in the photo to show the conistancy on the yolk. But the egg comes out the shell in its full form in tact.

Tip

I always use the XL eggs straight from the fridge and never fails and also up to four at a time. If you like your eggs more well done, a couple of things you can try to see if you prefer this type of consistency. I would suggest trial in this order to see what works best for you:

Take the egg out of the water for approx 2 minutes leave in its shell intact before cracking the egg. OR

Keep the egg in the water once the time is up for up to a minute before cracking the egg

Egg consistency can be quite a personal preference but you can experiment with the length of timing to get it how you like

    Submitted by JenQ on 12. March 2017 - 08:38.

    Thank you! What a great recipe. Eggs like these are quite popular in Japan and it has baffled me for years how they managed to do this. They turned out great. I would probably go a minute longer next time as they were quite soft but I just love how easy this recipe is. Interested to know if anyone has ever tried getting them out by cracking like an egg in the middle? Gently of course. I'm pretty sure that's what I saw them doing in Japan.

    Tried this recipe this morning and the 'peel' option was a fail.

    Good concept for boiled eggs, ours were still too runny with the whites not cooked through.

    Will try again, though - thanks for the recipe!

    Submitted by HealthyMixer on 19. October 2016 - 09:12.

    Oh dear! I failed at poaching eggs. Yolk was hard and white was runny, they did not slide out of the shell at all. I won't give this a low rating as I'm sure it's "user error" not the recipes fault. Lets blame it on the eggs hey! I used room temp fresh organic eggs.

    Submitted by Cornelia1958 on 10. September 2016 - 10:36.

    I have just scrolled through older messages (I didn't go far back enough before cooking this for first time) and someone has recommended making sure water temp is 70 before adding the eggs.

  • after the initial 7 minutes

    Submitted by Cornelia1958 on 10. September 2016 - 10:29.

    after the initial 7 minutes heating at 70C, should the temperature of the water be 70? Mine was only 45 and after cooking my eggs were slightly undercooked but still delicious. I was wondering whether I should continue the first step until the water reaches 70C. I realise tap water temperature will vary from region to region and season to season, but I live in Queensland and have tank water so it's never very cold.

    Perfect eggs!! Did 4 initially then 2 afterward using the same, already hot water. Kids ate them like boiled eggs with soldiers. Loved the consistency of both the yolks and whites. Won't be making boiled/poached eggs any other way now! Thanks for sharing!!

  • This method is hit and miss

    Submitted by luvlee on 12. April 2016 - 09:48.

    This method is hit and miss for me despite making it at least weekly. The whites rarely dislodge from the shell and are often runny. If I could overcome this, definitely 5 stars. Much easier than the stove top which is why I persevere.

    Submitted by Naomi_N on 1. September 2015 - 10:07.

    LOVE this recipe, have used it many times. I do 6 large eggs from the fridge for 12 minutes, and make sure the water comes at least half way up the eggs, to ensure they cook. Because there's more eggs they can't roll around in the water, in the basket. So glad to know this recipe!

    Submitted by egoode on 13. July 2015 - 23:32.

    I've only had my thermomix for  a couple of weeks and so excited I got this to work. I used 2 meduim eggs straight from the fridge and one came straight out of the shell and looked and tasted beautiful, the other one got slightly stuck to the shell so didn't look as pretty but still tasted great.

    Submitted by Juju's Dream on 28. June 2015 - 13:41.

    Awesome!  I used slightly smaller eggs so the yoke wasn't as runny as I expected but I know next time to perhaps take a minute off the cooking time.  Nevertheless, the eggs slid out the shell beautifully.  Served on toast with avocado and bacon - the family said it rocked.  Winner!  Thanks for this tmrc_emoticons.D

    Great recipe, I think the reason my eggs overcooked to 'soft boiled' was because I used boiled kettle water in the jug, but should have used water straight from the tap? Will definitely try again Smile

    I also had the egg stick to the shell! so I ended up scooping it out with a spoon which worked ok but I do think it should be easier?

    No idea why it sticks to shell. Anyone know why this happens?

    Submitted by matthewlachlan on 3. May 2015 - 18:50.

    Not so easy

    So I followed the recipe to the letter. Used 4 eggs. However there was no "simple sliding" out of the shell. Most of the white was stuck to the shell. Leading to a breakfast of bacon, toast, egg yolk and shell.

    What did I do wrong? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Fantastic recipe, although if you don't like slightly runny whites, either leave them in water for another minute or so, or have them room temperature before starting step 2. I use 2 large eggs and find an extra minute does them perfectly!

    Delicious! I've been trying to perfect poachies for years, swirling water & vinegar, cracking them into glad wrap parcels, suos vide ect. but this is by far the easiest and hopefully most consistent..time will tell.

    My eggs were straight out of the fridge so I let the eggs sit in water while the thermie was bringing the water up to temperature. I had to give it a couple of extra minutes to get to 70C.
