In small bowl, stir together oil, garlic, salt, pepper, coriander and cloves; brush over pork and let stand for 15 minutes.

Place pork on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning 3 times, until browned and just a hint of pink remains inside, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to cutting board and tent with foil; let stand for 5 minutes before carving into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices.

Meanwhile, in bowl, combine cabbage, carrot, peas, green onions, lime juice, sesame oil, vinegar, fish sauce, sugar and ginger; toss to coat. Divide among plates. Top with pork.
