Preheat oven to 275 degrees F. Place the carrots, celery and onion on bottom of a large dutch oven. Coat lamb belly with tomato paste (extra will thicken sauce), spices and salt and pepper and lay on top of vegetables. Add chicken stock until just covering the lamb and stick in oven for 6-8 hours (overnight).
Add all ingredients (except orange zest) in medium sauce pot and simmer (on low) for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally. When thick like a jam, zest orange over into the compote and leave warm for service.
Place lamb belly on wooden plank and spoon compote over the top of lamb. Add extra orange zest on the top. Serve immediately.
