Step 1

In a bowl, mix together sugar, mirin, soy sauce, ginger and green onions.

Step 2

Truss the pork belly with butchers twine, and put it in a freezer bag with the marinade. Remove the air through a vacuum sealer or the displacement method. Put the bag in the fridge, and let the pork marinade for 10 - 24 hours (optional, but recommended).
