1) Heat a browning dish for 5 to 7 minutes before cooking. The maximum time can be that in the manufacturer's instructions.

3) Stuff this mixture into the cavities cut in the side of each of the chops.
4) Use oil to grease the base of the heated dish and dry the chops gently with paper towels to allow browning.
5) In the dish, place the chops with the thickest part towards outside.
6) Using a spatula, press the chops down on to the browning surface and microwave for 1 minute on high when the sizzling stops.
7) Toss them over to brown the other side.
8) For the sauce, take a food processor or blender and process kidney beans, pepper, juniper berries, stock and tomato paste in it until pureed.
9) Take a shallow dish; pour the sauce into it and top with chops with their thicker part towards the outside of the dish.
10) Uncover and cook on high for about 7 minutes until the chops are just done.
11) Keep the chops warm after taking them from the dish.
12) Return the sauce back to the microwave and cook for 3 minutes on high until they become reduced and thickened, stirring once.
13) Spoon the sauce over chops and serve at once.
