1/2 c White Vinegar

Place the pork in a medium-size pot together with the garlic soy sauce pepper and vinegar and let stand for 2 hours.
*(See note below) Cook slowly in the same pot until the pork is tender (about 30 minutes).
Transfer pieces of garlic to a seperate pan and fry in hot oil until brown.
Add the pork pieces to the garlic and the fry until brown then Drain.
