Add the onions and garlic to the pan. Cook, stirring from time to time, until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
Add a bit more oil, to be sure the bottom of the pan is well coated, turn the heat to high and add about half of the mushrooms. Once they begin to brown, add the other half, and continue to sauté until they're golden and tender, about 10 minutes total. Now deglaze the pan by drizzling the sherry over the mushrooms and quickly stirring with a wooden spatula, scraping anything that’s stuck to the bottom off and into the mixture.
Season the pieces of pork with salt and pepper and add them to the pan. Mix and add the stock. Once the pieces are cooked through — about 5 minutes — add the peas and cream.
Season generously with salt and pepper to taste, and cook for another couple minutes, just to be sure all of the ingredients are blended and hot. (Here's How to Season to Taste.)
