It seems to me besides boiling/simmering everything requires oil or causes a food to fry in their own oil.
Deep frying obviously doesn't work however I have noticed that when grilling, baking etc the oil comes out of the meat and although it may eventually go to the bottom of the grill rack/skillet, before falling it fries these foods in their own fat on the way down.
I have noticed this same scenario occurs even with steaming i.e. fat comes out and fries food on it's way down. If the food is a flat piece then the fat fries at the top for longer . there is a combination of steam and oil.
Would you agree with me on above observation, are there other cooking methods where food does not need to fry in oil or fry in its own oil besides boiling\simmering?
