2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning
1/2 cup tomatoes, seeded and chopped

Rub the pork with half of the Cajun seasoning and the garlic salt. Set aside.
Heat half of the oil in a medium sized skillet over medium heat. Melt the butter and then add the shallots, garlic and the remaining Cajun seasoning. SautÃ© for 2 minutes or until the shallots are translucent and the mixture is fragrant. Add the chopped tomatoes and bell peppers. Cook it for another 2-3 minute or until soft. Place the rice into the skillet and stir-fry it along with the sautÃ©ed vegetables for 2 minutes or until heated through. Season it with salt and pepper.
Heat the remaining oil in a skillet or grill pan. Fry or grill the pork chops for 5 minutes per side or until they are cooked. Transfer them to individual plates. Serve immediately with the Cajun rice.
