Heat oil in heavy-bottomed 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to skillet and cook until well browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn chops and cook 1 minute longer, transfer chops to plate and pour off any oil in skillet. Return chops to skillet, browned side up, add glaze mixture; cook over medium heat until center of chops registers 140 degrees on instant-read thermometer, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove skillet from heat; transfer chops to clean platter, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes.

Step 3 - When chops have rested, add anyu accumulated juices to skillet and set over medium heat. Simmer, whisking constantly, until glaze is thick and color of dark caramel, 2 to 6 minutes. Return chops to skillet; turn to coat both sides with glaze. Transfer chops back to platter, browned side up, and spread remaining glaze over shops. Serve immediately.
