Most people like to eat eggs. Some people boil eggs every day. I’m sure some people know that if it takes to boil an egg changes, its taste will change. How long does it take to boil an egg? Five minutes or ten minutes or casual? Today I will reveal how long the eggs are cooked.

Egg cooking will be even more delicious this time around

There are many ways to boil eggs. Such as boiled in water, boiled in soup, boiled in the shell, and boiled naked.

The conventional understanding is to cook eggs with shells in water, not other methods. This is because I often cook porridge or stew, put a few eggs, and cook them. But, of course, there’s nothing wrong with that understanding.

There are several standards for boil eggs that are truly cooked.

Several standards for boiling eggs. For example, the egg white is solidified in the soft-boiled egg, but the yolk is still liquid. Also, the egg yolk just solidified. So it was considered a quasi-boiled egg. And then it was cooked until it was very old, and the egg yolk was already black and blue. So they are all cooked, and they are all truly cooked.

Cooking eggs does not require much time and eight minutes is preferable. This is because the egg whites are still soft and smooth when boiled for eight minutes, and the yolk is not completely solidified. So it is as tasty as a scrambled egg. So eggs cooked for eight minutes are even more delicious.

Three minutes:

After boiling in a pan under cold water, the eggs are actually raw and waiting for three minutes. At this time, the egg white is preparing to solidify, and the yolk is just beginning to change color, so it is no doubt with raw eggs. So eggs boiling in 3 minutes is not suitable for eating.

Five minutes:

After boiling, continue to cook for five minutes. The egg white has already solidified, but the yolk is just beginning to solidify, so you must be careful.

Eight minutes:

In fact, the eggs at this time are undoubtedly the most delicious. Because the egg white is tender and smooth, and the yolk is still in the sugar core state because those who like this kind of egg can cook for eight minutes.

Ten minutes:

If the egg is boiled for ten minutes or more, the inside of the basic egg will begin to change. That is difficult to digest and leads to the appearance of harmful substances.

After reading this, I believe everyone knows how long it takes to boil an egg. If you want a tender egg, then eight minutes is the best. Three minutes is a slightly cooked state. Trying this kind of egg is easy to cause. It is infected, so it is recommended to eat it carefully. As for eggs over ten minutes, the nutritional structure has basically changed, so it is recommended not to eat them.

A few reminders

Nutrients changes according to the time of egg boiling 2
  1. If you want to eat the soft-boiled egg, boil it and put it out until it is not hot. Then soak it in cold water.
  2. The cold water pot is safer. Because eggs are generally stored in the refrigerator, the temperature inside is relatively low. If the eggs are boiled in boiling water and suddenly put in the water, there will be a big temperature difference, which may explode. The real danger is that if the egg is not fresh, it is already yellow and bad, and it will explode if it is cooked like this.
  3. Don’t boil the eggs very much. When you cook until the outer layer of the egg yolk turns black and blue, it will cook hard. At this time, the egg will have a peculiar smell, called chicken shit in the countryside.
