   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      teaspoon      oil
    1      pound         ground pork
    8      cloves        garlic, minced
    3                    scallions (white part only), chopped
      1/3  cup           sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      black pepper
      3/4  cup           roasted salted peanuts, ground
    1                    fresh pineapple
                         lettuce leaves
                         mint leaves
                         cilantro leaves
                         jalapeo chile peppers, chopped
 
 1.  Heat oil in a frying pan, add pork, garlic and onions. Cook until
 pink color disappears; drain off most of the fat.
 
 2.  Add sugar and pepper, cook 1-2 minutes. Add peanuts, mix in well, then remo
 ve from heat and cool to room temperature.
 
 3.  Prepare platter, lining with lettuce leaves.  For pineapple, cut off
 top leaves and outer skin, as thinly as possible, from top down.
 
 4.  Look at the “eye” pattern, as it forms a spiral down the pineapple. 
 Cut the spirals with a sharp knife held at about a 45 degree angle.
 
 5.  Cut off bottom. Cut pineapple into about 5 or 6 wedges and then cut
 each of those into 1/4 inch slices.  Arrange fruit on platter.
 
 6.  Mound meat mixture onto fruit, and decorate with other garnishes. 
 
 Serve at room temperature or chilled.
