Begin by preheating a large skillet over medium-high heat. As the skillet heats up, use paper towels to pat the pork chops dry. Place them on a plate and season both sides with salt (1/2 tsp) and pepper.
In a small bowl, whisk together the pure maple syrup, Dijon mustard, and salt (1/4 tsp) until well combined.
Once the skillet is hot, add the extra virgin olive oil and swirl it to coat the bottom. Place the seasoned pork chops in the skillet and pan-fry them until they turn golden brown and are fully cooked, which should take about 3-4 minutes per side.
Once the pork chops are done cooking, transfer them to a clean plate. Pour the sauce over the pork chops, ensuring that both sides are coated evenly.
To serve, divide the maple-glazed pork chops among serving plates. Drizzle any remaining sauce over the chops and enjoy your delicious meal.
