Step 1

In a large heavy skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat. Season pork chops w/S&P. Add pork to the pan & brown on both sides, about 4-5 mins. Remove pork from pan & cover loosely with foil & set aside.
Add the fennel, shallots & parsley to pan & cook over medium heat until it begins to brown, about 5 mins. Using a wooden spoon, scrape the brown bits off bottom of pan. Add tomatoes & stir, Add pork back into pan, nestling between fennel & tomatoes. Cook until fennel is tender & pork is done, about 12-15 mins.
