Sprinkle salt, pepper and thyme on both sides of the pork chops. In a heavy skillet melt butter and brown pork chops on both sides about 3-5 minutes per side. Remove pork and set aside.
Add shallots to the skillet and saute until they begin to brown. Whisk in sour cream and brandy. Add raisins. Add pork back to the skillet. Allow the sauce to reduce to about half. Serve pork spooning sauce over it.
