Directions:

  1. Trim the chops of excess fat and season with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large, heavy frying pan on medium heat. Add the pork chops and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, until golden brown and the juices run clear. Transfer to a warm plate and cover with foil.
  2. To make the sauce, melt the butter in the pan. Add the shallot and cook, stirring often, for about 2 minutes, or until tender. Add the sherry, and cook for 1 minute, stirring up the browned bits in the pan. Add the stock and peppercorns and cook about 2 minutes, or until slightly reduced.
  3. Stir in the crème fraîche. Spoon the sauce over the chops and serve immediately.
