Preheat oven to 160°C. Mix together all the marinade ingredients. Place pork belly in a shallow bowl and pour over marinade. Marinate for 1 hour.

Transfer to an ovenproof dish, cover with stock and cook for 2½ hours. Remove from oven. Reserve pan juices. When cool enough to handle, remove skin using a sharp knife.

Score fat and brush with reserved pan juices. Place under a low grill, baste with pan juices regularly and grill until golden.
