  • Pour sherry into frying pan. Using a wooden spoon, scrape up and stir in any brown bits from pan bottom. Stir in hoisin as best you can. (Don’t worry if it doesn’t completely dissolve. Return chops to pan. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, occasionally turning chops and stirring sauce, until pork is firm to the touch, 4 to 5 min.
