Tip: Broiling is a dry-heat method of cooking generally
done in the oven. It uses the broiler setting and is best
for tender cuts of beef, chicken and fish.
To Broil: Set oven for broiling by preheating it for 10 minutes.
Most of the times, electric oven's doors should be left slightly
ajar, while the oven door for gas ovens should remain closed.
