Quick Dinner Recipes from the Broiler

Put your broiler to work with these weeknight recipes
Article Image

If you’ve got an oven, you’ve got a broiler―but chances are you’re not using it to its full potential. Broiling quick-cooking cuts of beef, chicken and fish make for easy weeknight mains (add veggies for an easy all-in-one meal), and a trusty two-piece foil-lined metal pan makes cleanup a breeze.

  • Recipe

    Burgers with Sun-Dried-Tomato Mayo & Arugula

    We love the grill for how fast we can cook up a burger, but these saucy burgers cook just as quickly under the broiler set to high.
  • Recipe

    Five-Spice-Glazed Salmon with Sesame Green Beans

    Chinese five-spice powder, honey, and soy sauce create a tasty glaze for this simple salmon dish. Broil the green beans and salmon on the same baking sheet, and you have a meal in minutes.
  • Recipe

    Honey-Chipotle Glazed Flank Steak

    When you’re craving a little barbecue flavor in winter, this recipe does the trick. Serve with mashed sweet potatoes.
  • Recipe

    Lime Chicken with Poblano Sour Cream

    Cooking both the poblanos and the chicken under the broiler makes this bright chicken supper super fast.
  • Recipe

    Broiled Lamb Loin Chops with Olive-Mint Salsa

    Here, lamb chops are finished with a vibrant salsa which comes together in minutes, making the dish perfect for a weeknight dinner.
  • Recipe

    Ham Steak with Rosemary Glaze

    So simple: Orange marmalade adds a sweet element to the dish while a pinch of red pepper flakes gives the glaze a little heat and keeps things interesting.
  • Recipe

    Miso-Glazed Salmon with Green Tea Rice

    This version of Japanese ochazuke (green-tea rice) borrows from another Japanese classic: fish glazed with a miso-mirin mixture and quickly broiled.
  • Recipe

    Deviled Pork Chops

    A little more than 10 minutes under a high-heat broiler is about what it takes to cook these perfectly-browned chops. A mixture of mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire, and cayenne pack them with flavor.
  • Recipe

    Broiled Salmon with Ginger-Shiitake Glaze

    Honey helps the crust brown under the broiler, and a splash of vinegar and a spoonful of chili paste perk up this colorful fish dinner.
  • Recipe

    Cider-Glazed Chicken Thighs

    This recipe couldn’t be simpler: Just roast the chicken until cooked through, brush with a three-ingredient glaze, and broil until golden-brown.
  • Recipe

    Pecan-Crusted Skirt Steak

    A blend of chopped pecans, honey, butter and rosemary give broiled skirt steak a crunchy, toasty crust in this quick main course.
  • Recipe

    Niçoise Tuna Melts

    The broiler makes a quick sandwich-for-dinner feel substantial and satisfying. This open-face sandwich is a cross between a tuna melt (hold the American; we’re talking Comté, Emmentaler, or Gruyère, here) and Niçoise salad.
