Cook one way or another? That's about right (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

broil

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'cook' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'one way or another? that's about right' is the wordplay.
'one way or another?' becomes 'boil' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'that's about' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'right' becomes 'r' (common abbreviation).
'boil' going around 'r' is 'BROIL'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for broil that I've seen before include "get very heated" , "disturbance" , "Old quarrel" , "stew" , "Maybe grill" .)
