adapted Relish 1 /2012

freshly ground black pepper
1 large shallot sliced
1 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp.dried thyme
1 tsp. grated orange rind
Season pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium high heat. Add chops and cook, turning once until slightly pink in side and slightly browned. About 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to platter and cover to keep warm.
Add sliced shallot to pan and saute' 1 minute add juices, stirring with a whisk to loosen any browned bits. Bring to a boil and cook until liquid is nearly gone 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in cream. Boil until sauce reaches desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk in thyme and orange rind. Spoon sauce over chops and serve. Enjoy!!
Note: I added brown rice and zima orange tomatoes with chives, oil and vinegar to compliment this dish.
A great Gift suggestion along with some kitchen herbs is:
Kitchen gadget Cool Gift #3 Herb Scissors. Thyme stays all winter if protected. This is my plant from last year!
