    Roasts, chops, hamburgers and small cuts of tender meat cook beautifully in the microwave oven. Most roasts can be cooked rare, medium rare or even well done in less than one hour. Less tender cuts of meat such as pot roast can be simmered fork-tender in a sauce or gravy. Tough cuts that require slow cooking will do better in a conventional oven.

    Eggs cook differently by microwave. The high fat content of egg yolks absorbs energy, so yolks cook faster than whites. It's easy to poach eggs in a microwave oven, but if you want soft yolks, remove eggs from the oven before whites are completely cooked. A brief standing time allows whites to set without overcooking yolks.

    Because of their shorter cooking time, casseroles cooked in the microwave oven generally need less liquid. Casseroles with cream and cheese sauces, or meats which need slower cooking to tenderize, cook best on power level 40.

    Sauces boil over rapidly, especially those that contain milk. As soon as the door is opened, cooking stops. If ingredients are not taken directly from the refrigerator, cooking time will be less than given in the recipe. Stir sauce quickly, about every 30 seconds to eliminate lumps. Be sure to use a container twice the size of the amount of liquid to prevent boiling over.

    • Breads and rolls should be reheated to the point where they are warm to the touch. Overheating or overcooking makes bread tough and rubbery. • When making yeast bread in a microwave oven, choose a recipe with cornmeal, whole wheat flour, or rye flour to achieve a richer color.
