  1. In a bowl, combine ground pork, ground pork fat, sugar, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix until well-distributed.
  2. On a individual sheet of wax paper, spoon about 1 tablespoon of pork mixture and form into a log. Roll and wrap tightly. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Arrange in a ziplock container and freeze.
