BROILING
Most foods can be broiled st the HI Broil Setting. Select
the L0 Broil setting to avoid excessive
browning or
drying of foods that should he cooked to the well-done
stage (such as thick pork chops or poultry).
POSITIONING
BROILER
PAN
Broiling Is cooking by direct heat from the broil element.
Tender cuts of meat or marlnsted
meat should be se-
lected for broiling.
For best results steaks and chops
should be at least 3/4" thick.
After placing food on the broiler pan, put the pan on an
oven rack In the proper poslUon.
The recommended
rack position and cooking time can be found In the chart
below.
The closer the food Is to the broil element, the faster the
meat browns on the outside, yet stays red to pink In the
center.
Moving the meat farther away from the element
lets the meat cook to the center while browning outside.
Side one should be cooked 1 - 2 minutes longer than
side two.
BROILING
TIPS
Your
oven
door
should
be open
to the
broil
stop
position
while
broiling.
If the
door
is
closed,
the food will roast
and not broil.
Use only the broiler pan and grid that came with your
range for broiling.
They are designed
for proper
drainage of fat and liquids and help prevent spatter,
smoke or fire.
Do not preheat
when broiling.
For even broiling
on both sides, start the food on a cold pan.
Trim the outer layer of fat from steaks and chops. Slit
the fatty edges to keep the meat from curling.
For maximum juiciness, salt the first side just before
turning
the meat.
Salt the second side just before
serving.
Brush chicken and fish with butter several times as
they broil.
When broiling fish, grease the grid to
prevent sticking and broil with skin side down. It is
not necessary to turn fish.
Never
leave
a soiled
broiler
pan in the range.
Grease in the pan may smoke or burn the next time
the oven Is used.
Be sure you know the correct procedure for putting
out a grease fire. See the section on safety.
Do not cover the entire
broiler
grid with foil.
Poor drainage
of hot fat may cause
a broiler
fire.
If a fire starts,
close the oven
door and turn controls
off.
If
fire
continues,
throw
baking
soda on the fire.
Do not put
water
on the fire.
