Generously season pork  with garlic salt and pepper.  In a small bowl stir together salsa, pepper flakes and sugar. In a small bowl add onion, drizzle with oil and toss to coat.
Heat small nonstick skillet. Spread onion slices across the bottom of the pan.  Place pork on top, drizzle with salsa and sprinkle with jalapenos.

Tip:  The sugar gently balances the acid in the salsa for only 1/2 carb per serving.
