Pork chop with adobo creme sauce

1/4 cup of white vinegar
1/4 cup of soy sauce 
1/4 heavy creme
1/2 tsp of ground black pepper
1/4 tsp of salt
2 large fresh cloves of garlic ( minced)
1 small bay leaf 
1/4 cup of water

2 thick pork chop
Some oil or lard ( I used bacon fat) for searing the pork

Preheat the oven at 350F
In the stove heat a pan with some lard or oil
Season the pork chop with salt and pepper
When the pan is hot enough seared the meat on both sides till it have a nice color then transfer to a baking pan. 

In a small bowl mix the rest of the ingredients for the adobo sauce, then pour it in the baking pan. I also put some green beans in the same baking pan where my pork chop is.
Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes in  the middle rack
After it's done baking, while the pork chop is resting, I pour all the sauce in a small sauce pan and put it in the stove in a medium heat till it reduce and thicken a bit.
Use the adobo sauce like a gravy and serve it on top of the pork chop.
