Wikipedia defines étouffée as a dish found in both Cajun and Creole cuisine typically served with shellfish over rice, from French meaning ‘to smother or suffocate’.

2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne, more or less if you want
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt and pepper

In a heavy-bottom pot melt and heat the fat
add pork and cook through, remove from pot, and set aside
