Combine the salt and pepper and dried thyme and rub on the pork chops. Press a sprig of thyme into each chop. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat and add the pork chops, thyme-side down. Sear 5 to 7 minutes per side, or until just browned and the interior is no longer bright pink. Transfer to a warm plate.
Pour off the fat from the skillet, return to the heat, add the stock and wine, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 to 7 minutes. Spoon the sauce over the pork chops and serve.
