<How to Make>
① Make cuts into both sides of the drumettes to make them easier to eat.
② Thinly slice the ginger with the skin on. Crush the garlic. Remove the stems from the string beans.
③ Pour the sesame oil into a frying pan and heat. Brown the drumettes. Add the ginger and garlic, and fry. Add the water, honey, mirin, umezu, and soy sauce, and bring to a boil. Skim any foam that develops. When the pan comes to a boil, cover it, reduce the heat, and simmer for 10 minutes.
④ Add the boiled eggs, replace the lid and simmer to reduce the liquid by half. Turn the eggs occasionally. Finally, add the string beans and simmer for another 2-3 minutes.
Serve the drumettes and eggs (split these) and add the string beans.
