Season the pork chops on both sides liberally with salt and pepper. Place in the heated skillet and brown on both sides. Remove to a separate plate.
Add the onion and peppers to the skillet. Saute for 5-10 minutes, until they have softened. Add the garlic and saute for another minute.
Return the pork chops back to the skillet. Spread the quinoa on the pork chops. Pour the chicken stock over the quinoa and pork. Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 30 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Place one pork chop and a large spoonful of quinoa in 4 separate bowls and serve.
