AFF Thailand: Ma Haw (Galloping Horses)

An interesting Thai appetizer which I chanced upon Baby Sumo's blog via the inlinkz.  From the small photo icon, I was wondering what could those yellow pieces be, so I went ahead to click on it to find out.  Oh, it's fresh pineapple cubes. 
Hmm...this recipe has crushed peanuts, pineapple, what's there not to like about this?  In fact, I really like the minced meat topping, it was very very delicious upon tasting.  I had to quickly store it away from my sight lest I end up consuming them all.

3pips garlic (chopped)
225g minced pork
2tbsp light soy sauce
3tbsp palm sugar
1 spring onion (white parts only), finely sliced
1/2tbsp fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped

25g unsalted cooked peanuts, skin removed and roughly ground
A pinch of ground white pepper
1 pineapple

To garnish
20 coriander leaves

1/  Heat oil in a wok over medium high heat, then add the garlic and cook for 1 1/2 minutes, until lightly browned. Lower to medium heat, then add the minced pork and cook for a further 5-6 minute, until the pork is cooked through and begins to brown slightly. Use your spatula to break up the meat until it has separated.
 2/  Add the light soy sauce, palm sugar, pepper, spring onions, chopped coriander, and crushed peanuts, and stir well. Cook for a further 4-5 minutes until the mixture is dry and sticky. Taste and season with more soy sauce, as required.
 3/ To serve, place pineapple segments on plate, then scoop a tablespoonful of cooked minced meat onto the segment. Garnish with a slice of chilli and coriander leaf each.
