2 pork chops
1/4 - 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 medium size red shallot
1/4 tbsp dried thyme
2 1/2 tbsp dry white wine or cider vinegar
1/4 cup maple syrup
1. Season the pork chops with some salt. Keep some salt for later.
2. In a pan with oil, cook the pork chops for 3-5 minutes on each side or until they are nicely browned. Dish up and set aside.
3. In the same pan, add the shallot, dried thyme and balance salt in. Cook until shallot turns brown.
4. Low heat - pour the white wine in and deglaze the pan, then add maple syrup and black pepper in. Adjust the amount of black pepper to your preference. Stir and let it simmer for a few minutes.
Serve the sauce over the pork chop...
