Serves 4

2 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cubed
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons water

Place pork into a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, cumin, turmeric, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour over the pork, and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Remove pork from the marinade, reserving the marinade, and place in the hot skillet. Cook until nicely browned on the outside. Add orange juice, water, dried onion, and the reserved marinade. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 30 minutes, or until the pork is fork tender.

In a small cup, stir together the flour and 2 tablespoons of water. Stir into the skillet, and simmer uncovered until thickened, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve warm with the sauce drizzled over the top.
