  1. Place pork into a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, cumin, turmeric, garlic granules, salt and pepper. Pour over the pork and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Remove pork from the marinade, reserving the marinade and place in the hot frying pan. Cook until nicely browned on the outside. Add orange juice, 125ml water, onion powder and the reserved marinade. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 30 minutes or until the pork is fork tender.
  3. In a small cup, stir together the flour and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir into the frying pan and simmer uncovered until thickened, 2 to 4 minutes.
