For the Pork Chop:
  1. In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, salt, and black pepper.
  2. Marinate the pork chops in this mixture for at least 30 minutes, or you can marinate them in the refrigerator overnight for even better flavor.
  3. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add a little oil. Once hot, sear the marinated pork chops for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they are nicely browned.
  5. Transfer the seared pork chops to a baking dish.
For the Cheese Sauce:
  1. In the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  2. Add the flour and stir continuously for a couple of minutes to make a roux.
  3. Slowly pour in the fresh milk while whisking constantly to avoid lumps.
  4. Keep stirring until the mixture thickens.
  5. Stir in the shredded cheddar cheese until the sauce is smooth and creamy.
  6. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  7. Pour the cheese sauce over the seared pork chops in the baking dish.
  8. Bake the pork chops in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and slightly browned.
