Bring the port to a boil in a medium-size heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Lower the heat slightly and simmer until reduced to 1 cup (240 ml) (if using a gas stove, never let the flames extend above the bottom edge of the pan). Add the vinegar and simmer until reduced almost to a syrup consistency, lowering the heat as necessary and watching carefully to keep it from burning around the edges—you should have about 7 tablespoons (100 ml).

Divide 1 tablespoon of corn oil between two skillets and place them over high heat until just smoking. Divide the cepes, thyme, and garlic between the skillets and lower the heat to medium. Sauté until browned, about 4 minutes.
