Maple-Thyme Pork Chops

Ingredients
4
boneless pork loin chops, about 3/4 inch thick (about 1-1/4 pounds total)
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
1
tablespoon canola oil
2
tablespoons finely chopped shallot
2
tablespoons chopped pecans, toasted
2
tablespoons maple-flavored syrup
1
tablespoon melted butter
1
tablespoon snipped fresh thyme

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine pecans, syrup, butter, and thyme. Place cooked pork chops onto 4 dinner plates. Top with syrup mixture.
