Remove it from heat. Add the cheese to it and then add thyme, 1/8 tsp pepper and 1/4 tsp salt.
Make deep cuts on the pork chop making horizontal deep pockets. Make sure you make cuts on the meaty side. Fill the pockets with the cheesy vegetable mixture. Now secure the openings using toothpicks. Make sure it is closed so that the stuffing does not drop.
Now use the same skillet and heat some oil in it. Cook the pork chops in the hot oil for 5 minutes. Keep checking by turning it. It should be light brown in color. Sprinkle the salt and pepper. Now you need to bake this stuffed pork.
