Use a sharp knife to make deep cross-hatching cuts in the top layer of fat. Place in a 6-quart slow cooker, fat side up.

Whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, oyster sauce, mirin, water, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. Pour over the pork belly. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or LOW for 6 to 7 hours, until tender.
