how to cook in studio apartment without using stove

theromanone | Dec 26, 2012 03:55 PM

Welp, my apartment kitchen (studio/1 bedroom) is nowhere near a window, and somewhat close to my closet (smelling up all of my clothes like the bacon, steak, eggs, onions, that I cook with). it's gotten to the point where I don't want to cook anymore unless it's in the oven, my cast iron, carbon steel, and nonstick all smoke. Braising meat doesn't help, as it smells up everything as well. Even when on the pans, I just sear my meat for rare/med-rare, which still smokes everything to the point where I can visible see the smoke all in my apartment.

Any tips on how to cook steaks and chicken in the oven somewhat quickly? Have no experience doing this or broiling.

I cook 3-4 times a day with fresh chicken or steak or bacon. I'd rather not have to wait one hour to cook tender chicken each time I am hungry. Also, I hate having to cook meat that has been cooked previously, since it always seems to be rough. But not sure what I can do with my options here?
