It depends. When you have plenty of altitude you would play it safe to avoid secondary stalls.

When the ground is approaching fast, my strategy as a non-pilot engineer would be (I've been shot down earlier mentioning this): Push the sidestick fully forward until the stall warning stops. Then immediately SS to neutral, slowly start pulling, carefully increasing the pull force until stall warning is encountered, then immediately SS to neutral until stall warning stops, then start pulling again, etc.

For the reasons you mentioned I wouldn't add power.

P.S.
Depending on how fast autotrim moves the THS, manual trim should be considered.
