Skillet Pork Chops with Pears and Shallots


1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Pat pork dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
2. Heat butter and oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add pork and brown on both sides, 8 to 10 minutes total; transfer to a plate. Reduce heat to medium and add pears, shallots, and thyme to skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until shallots and pears begin to soften, 3 to 5 minutes.
3. Increase heat to high, stir in wine, and simmer until mixture is reduced by half, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in cider and mustard and bring to a boil. Nestle pork back into skillet along with accumulated juices on plate.
4. Transfer skillet to oven and cook until center of pork registers 145 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer pork to plates, spoon pear and shallot mixture over top, and serve.
