Place onion mixture, chilies, cumin, oregano and 2/3 cup / 170 ml / 5 1/2 fl oz stock in a food processor or blender and process to make a puree. Return mixture to frying pan and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or mixture reduces and thickens. Stir in remaining stock, orange juice and 1 tablespoon vinegar, bring to simmering and simmer for 25 minutes or until sauce reduces and thickens. Cool.
3. Combine cool sauce with remaining vinegar. Place pork in a glass or ceramic dish and coat with one-third of the sauce, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.
4. Drain pork and cook on a preheated hot barbecue grill or in a frying pan for 2-3 minutes each side or until brown. Transfer to a baking dish and bake at 150°C / 300°F / Gas 2 for 45-50 minutes or until tender. Heat remaining sauce in a saucepan over a low heat. To serve, cut pork into slices and arrange on a serving platter, spoon over sauce and scatter with olives and sliced onion.
