Cooking meat in your microwave
Be sure to place prepared meats on a microwave-safe roasting rack in a microwave-safe dish. Start cooking the meat fat
side down and if necessary, use narrow strips of aluminum foil to shield any bone tips or thin meat areas. After cooking,
check the temperature in several places before letting the meat stand the recommended time. Please note that the
temperatures in the following charts are temperatures at removal time; the temperature will rise during the standing period.
