I almost never cook with vegetable oil, especially olive oil. But it doesn't mean that it can't be used for heating the pan. Although, to my taste, it is melted butter that adds "sweetness" to the meal .But It is possible to use vegetable oil to taste. Sherry can be replaced with sweet Port wine or any dessert wine. The same can be said about red wine. I used Tempranillo Ribera del Duero. However, I think, there can be more red wine to your taste. The amount of sugar depends on taste preferences. On request it can be increased or reduced to zero. I used 4 rear legs of rabbit for stew.
