If you are preparing any kind of meals from a recipe, it’s important that you understand the various methods of cooking. There are a number of terms for different ways of cooking, as follow.
If a recipe calls for something to be grilled, it generally means it should be cooked over an open flame or heat. Grilling can be done by charcoal or gas – on a barbeque for example – or it can be done using a grill of some sort on the burners of your stove.
Broiling indicates cooking by exposing directly to a heat source such as a flame or element. Most ovens have a “broil” setting, which heats an element at the top of the stove rather than the one at the bottom, which is used for baking.
When broiling items in the oven, they should normally be placed on the top rack to give them the proper heat exposure.
