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.
