Season the pork with salt and pepper, and brown it in the olive oil until cooked through (2-3 minutes). Keep the juices in the pan. To make the pomegranate jus, mix the juice and caster sugar in a small saucepan and reduce for 10-15 minutes until slightly thick. When cool, add lemon juice. Blanch the beans and asparagus in salted water for 3-4 minutes until tender, but still bright green. Drain and arrange on a platter. Caramelise the pork in the same pan it was cooked in by adding the pomegranate jus. Place it back on the heat for 3-5 minutes until sticky. Serve on top of the beans and asparagus. Garnish with pomegranate rubies. Serve with pilau rice or sweet potato mash.
