Hawaiian Salpicao

This salpicao dish is Hawaiian inspired that is why it is called Hawaiian salpicao. The pork contains pineapple chunks, tofu, spices and seasonings. I wonder why dishes with pineapples are called Hawaiian since not every dishes in Hawaii contains pineapples. I just assume that since pineapples are abundant in Hawaii that is why some people name dishes with pineapples “Hawaiian”.
