Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork turning once for one side for about 1 minute or until golden. Transfer to a baking sheet and roast in oven for 7-9 minutes or until just a hint of pink remains inside. Remove from oven, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, add apples, shallot and thyme to the same skillet. Cook for 7 minutes.
Combine 1/2 cup boiling water, maple syrup and juices from the baking sheet in a jug. Stir into apple mixture and cook for 4 minutes.
