Ingredients

Pork:
Pickled Onions:
Asparagus:
Pesto:

Directions

Special equipment: a deep fryer or large pot

For the pork: Marinate the pork in the orange juice, lemon juice and garlic in a baking dish in the refrigerator overnight.

Preheat the oven to 280 degrees F. Remove the pork from the marinade, transfer to a baking dish and cover with foil. Roast until tender, about 4 hours. Let cool until firm.

Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large pot. Combine the flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Dredge the pork in the flour mixture and fry until warmed through and crispy, 4 to 5 minutes.

For the pickled onions: Bring the vinegar to a boil in a small saucepan. Add the sugar and stir to dissolve. Pour over the red onions in a heat-proof bowl. Let stand until room temperature and then refrigerate overnight.

For the asparagus: Heat the butter and garlic in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the asparagus and saute until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

For the pesto: Puree the basil, olive oil, pine nuts and garlic in a blender. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and fold in the Parmesan and season with salt and pepper.

For plating: Put the asparagus on a plate. Add the crispy pork and top with the pesto and pickled red onions.
