Add 2/3 cup (160 ml) of the broth, mustard seeds, vinegar, and oregano. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer just until meat is no longer pink in center; cut to test (about 12 minutes).
3. Lift pork to a warm platter and keep warm. To pan, add wine and remaining 1/3 cup (80 ml) broth.Bring to a boil over high heat; then boil until reduced to 3/4 cup/180 ml (about 2 minutes). Stir in cornstarch mixture; return to a boil, stirring.

5. Slice pork; mound bulgur mixture alongside, then top with asparagus. Spoon sauce over meat. Season to taste with salt and pepper
