  • In a mixing bowl, mix the 2 cups sugar with the white vinegar and water.

  • In a separate bowl, tear the leaf lettuce into pieces and sprinkle a pinch of salt over the leaves. Set aside.
  • In a frying pan, fry diced side pork and diced onion.
  • While pork and onions are frying, peel potatoes and dice. Boil the potatoes until tender.
  • Once boiled, drain the potatoes.
