Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Strip 1 tbsp thyme leaves (dbl for 4 ppl) from the stems. Peel, then thinly slice the shallot. Quarter the Brussels sprouts.

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then pork. Pan-fry, until golden, 2-3 min per side. When pork is golden, transfer to a baking sheet. Roast, in the middle of the oven, until cooked through, 10-12 min.**
While the pork roasts, heat the same pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter, 1 tsp oil (dbl both for 4 ppl), then the shallots, garlic and Brussels sprouts. Cook, stirring often until Brussels sprouts are tender-crisp, 8-10 min. Season with salt and pepper
