I'm making the Chiense bbq pork recipe from Cooks Illustrated
(may require subscription)
It calls for 1/4 cup of dry sherry as part of the marinade, along with sugar, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, white pepper, five spice, sesame oil, ginger and garlic.
I'm a total sherry novice.... what inexpensive sherry would be a good addition to this heady brew?
Ideally this sherry would be good for drinking afterwards as well. It can't all go to pork marinade, after all.
P.S. I tried my local Trader Joe's but they were distinctly sherry-less. 80 kinds of vodka, tequila and whiskey, but no sherry.
