Personal Notes:
Hoisin adds complexity to the flavor of the sauce. You can save some time, and tears, by chopping the onions in the processor in two batches.

Can be made one day ahead. Cool slightly. Chill uncovered until cold, then cover and keep refrigerated. Bring to simmer before serving, stirring occasionally. Transfer stew to large bowl. Sprinkle with parsley; serve.
