|2 small naval oranges|
|1 tsp olive oil (or use spray can)|
|12 oz pork tenderloin, thinly sliced on diagonal|
|3/4 tsp salt (optional)|
|1/4 tsp pepper|
|1 clove garlic, minced|
|1 1/2 lbs asparagus, trimmed and stalks cut into 3|
|1/4 cup water|
- From 1 orange, grate off 1 tsp of peel and squeeze out 1/4 cup of orange juice. (1 small orange will provide approx. 1 tsp of peel and 1/4 cup of orange juice.)
- Remove peel and white pithy parts of 2nd orange. Being careful not to squish out the juice, cut the orange into round slices about 1/4 inch thick and then quarter each slice.
- Using a non-stick large skillet, heat oil on medium-high heat until hot (but not smoking). Stir fry pork tenderloin strips, stirring frequently until there is no pinkness left - about 2-3 minutes. Transfer pork to a warm plate and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- In same skillet, add asparagus, garlic, orange peel and water. Cover and cook for about 3-5 minutes, or until asparagus is tender-crisp, stirring occassionally.
- Return pork to pan and add orange juice and orange pieces. Stir often until pork is thoroughly reheated.

A wonderful recipe when asparagus is in season and therefore a good price.
A small, thinly sliced red pepper cooked with the asparagus adds some nice colour to the final presentation.
