Place the pork belly into a large saucepan and cover with water until submerged. Bring to the boil and cook until medium-well. Remove and cool. Once the pork is cool, cut into thin slices.
Blanch the sliced pork in boiling water for 1 minute, drain and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok until very hot. Stir-fry the spring onions until aromatic.
Stir in the sliced pork, add the soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and MSG and mix well. Continue to cook until the pork starts to shrink and the oil is rendered from the meat.
