BROILING How to Broil 3 _ Broiling is cooking food by direct heat from above the Arrange food on rack and position the broiler pan on the appropIiate shelf in the oven or broiling food . Your range has either a broilet in the oven o _ a compartment below the oven for broiling ° A specially compartment . Placing food closer to flame increases exterior browning of food , but also designed broiler pan and rack allows dripping fat to drain away from the foods and be kept away from the increases spattering and the possibility of fats and meat juices igniting . high heat of the gas flame , 4 _ Close the oven or broiler door . Both the oven and broiler compartment doors ( on some models ) should be closed during broiling . 5 . Turn OVEN CONTROL knob and BAKE / BROIL switch ( on models so equipped ) to BROIL . Depending on whether your range is equipped with a separate broiler drawer or is equipped for in - oven 6 . Turn most foods once during cooking ( the broiling , you can change the distance of the food fiom exception is thin fillets of fish ; oil one side , place the heat source by positioning the broiler pan and rack that side down on broiler rack and cook without on one of the oven shelves or one of the three shelf turning until done ) . Time foods for about one - half positions in the broiler compartment - - A ( bottom of the total cooking time , turn food , then continue to broiler compartment ) , B ( middle ) and C ( top ) . cook to preferred doneness . 1 . Preheating the broiler or oven is not necessary and 7 . Turn OVEN CONTROL knob to OFF . Remove can produce poor results . broiler pan from oven and serve food immediately Leave pan outside the oven to cool . 2 . If meat has fat or ' gristle near the edge , cut vertical slashes through it about 2 inches apart , but don't cut into meat . We recommend that you trim fat to prevent excessive smoking , leaving a layer about 1 / 8 inch thick . Use of Aluminum Foil Broiling Tips You can use aluminum foil to / . t 1 . Always use broiler pan and rack that comes with your oven _ It is designed to minimize smoking and line your broiler pan and broiler rack , However ; you spattering by trapping , juices in the shielded lower must mold the foil tightly to part of the pan the rack and cut slits in it . just 2 , For ' steaks and chops , slash fat evenly around like the rack . outside edges of meat . To slash , cut crosswise tbsough outer fat surface just to the edge of the Without the slits , the f0il will prevent fat and meat juices from draining to the broiler pan . The juices meat , . Use tongs to turn meat over to prevent could become hot enough to catch on fire . tf you do piercing meat and losing juices _ not cut the slits , you are frying , not broiling . Questions & Answers Q . Should I salt the meat before broiling ? Q . When broiling , is it necessary to always use a rack in the pan ? A . No , Salt draws out the juices and allows them to evaporate _ Always salt after cooking ° Turn meat A . Yes . Using the rack suspends the meat over the pan . As the meat cooks , the . juices fail into the pan , with tongs ; piercing meat with a fork also allows juices to escape , When broiling poultry or fish , thus keeping meat drier . Juices me protected by the brush each side often with butter , rack and stay cooler , thus preventing excessive spatter and smoking , ( continued next page ) Q . Why are my meats not turning out as brown as they should ? A , Check to see if you are using the recommended shelf position . Broil for longest period of time indicated in the Broiling Guide .
