Microwave setting: HIGH 100%/MEDIUM HIGH 70%

Microwave cooking time: 22 minutes

Remember: The amount of fat and bone affects the evenness of cooking. Fat and bone both conduct the heat and therefore the meat nearest the bone will cook first. Well marbled meat will have a better distribution of heat and cook more evenly than lean meat.
