Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove pork from pan; set aside, and keep warm.
Drain apricots, reserving syrup. Add 6 tablespoons syrup to pan; cook over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining 1/2 cup syrup and apricots; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve sauce over pork.
