Turning
Turn foods over midway through the cooking cycle
to expose all parts to the microwave energy. This is
especially important with large items such as roasts.
Standing
Foods cooked in the microwave build up internal heat
and continue to cook for a few minutes after the oven
stops. Let foods stand to complete the cooking process,
especially foods such as roasts and whole vegetables.
Roasts need this time to complete cooking in the center
without overcooking the outer areas. All liquids, such as
soup or hot chocolate, should be shaken or stirred when
cooking is complete. Let liquids stand a moment before
serving. When heating baby food, stir well and test the
temperature before serving.
Adding moisture
Microwave energy is attracted to water molecules. Food
that is uneven in moisture content should be covered or
allowed to stand so that the heat disperses evenly. Add a
small amount of water to dry food to help it cook.
Venting
After covering a dish with plastic wrap, vent the plastic
wrap by turning back one corner to let excess steam
escape.

COOkING mEAT
