Tender cuts of meat do well in the microwave, especially
when cooked at lower power levels. Be sure meat is fully
defrosted before cooking. Consult the meat cooking charts
(pages 30-32) for details.
The exact time to cook each piece of meat will depend on the
shape of the meat, the weight, the starting temperature of the
meat and the desired doneness. Our timings assume the meat
is taken from the proper storage (refrigerated). The lower
number in the time range reflects time suggested for medium
meat; the higher number for well done. It is always possible
to add time if needed, so it is best to start with the lower
number for calculating the time.
Stand time after cooking is an important aspect of microwave
cooking since more cooking will take place then. The
residual heat in the food will equalize and finish the cooking
process. Always check for doneness after the stand time.
