teaspoon ground black pepper
tablespoon canola oil
tablespoons finely chopped shallot
tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
tablespoon melted butter
tablespoon snipped fresh thyme
- Sprinkle chops with salt and ground black pepper. In a very large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shallot; cook and stir for 1 minute. Add chops; cook for 9 to 13 minutes or until pork juices run clear (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through cooking time.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine pecans, syrup, butter, and thyme. Place cooked pork chops onto 4 dinner plates. Top with syrup mixture.
