of time may be brushed with a browning sauce to
achieve an appetizing color. The most commonly

soy sauce, and barbecue sauce. Since relatively

foods, the original flavor of recipes is not altered.

Q.
Why
A.
Standing time is very important. With microwave cooking, the heat is in the food, not in the oven. Many
foods build-up enough internal heat to allow the cooking process to continue, even after the food is
removed from the oven. Standing time for joints of meat, large vegetables and cakes is to allow the
inside to cook completely, without overcooking the outside.
