  1. Step 1

    Combine lime juice, garlic, chopped coriander, chopped mint, oregano, cumin, 1½ cups (375ml) orange juice and 1 tbs oil in a glass dish. Add pork. Turn to coat. Cover and place in fridge for 4 hours to develop the flavours.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a large frying pan or barbecue grill on medium-low. Drain pork, reserving marinade. Cook the pork, partially covered, turning, for 15-18 mins or until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover and set aside for 5 mins to rest.
  3. Step 3

    While the pork is resting, place reserved marinade in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook for 5 mins or until mixture reduces by half. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Wipe pan clean. Place over high heat. Add orange slices and cook for 1 min each side or until browned.
  4. Step 4

    Place salad mix and seed sachet from salad kit in a bowl (reserve dressing from the kit for another use). Combine vinegar and remaining orange juice and oil in a bowl and pour over salad. Arrange pork and orange slices on a platter. Drizzle with marinade. Serve with the corn, coriander sprigs, mint sprigs and salad.
