2. add everything in a food processor and mince (don’t make it too fine, just get rid of big chunks)
3. put the oil in a large pan, add the mince and simmer for +/- 10 minutes, you can add the salt, cayenne powder and szechuan pepper dust now, while that’s cooking …
4. chop the pineapple and tomatoes, put them in the food processor, mince and pour everything over into the pan with the simmering mix from step 1 (that should look a but reduced/shrunken)
