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

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.
3. Money-Saving Tip: Switch out the 2 tablespoons shallot for 1/4 cup chopped onion.
