Combine all of the ingredients except the ice and the pork in a nonreactive 2-quart saucepan set over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and maintain a simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the ice, and stir. Place the pork into a 1-gallon zip top bag and add the cooled pickling liquid. Remove as much air as possible, seal the bag, and place in a leak-proof containter in the refrigerator for at least 3 days, turning the bag occasionally. Use within 2 weeks or remove the pork from the brine and freeze.
