I had high hopes for this recipe after reading the reviews but I was a little disappointed with how it turned out as I thought it was a bit bland...
Worth giving it another go but I think next time I'd add white wine before the stock. And definitely more spice!

Absolute class! Made this for my housemates at uni, but left out the soured cream and added chickpeas. Served it with mashed parsnips! Lovely!

I used some pork I had in the freezer left over from a joint I had earlier in the week. I added some crushed chillies as suggested to give it more of a kick and used creme fraiche as this was what I had in the fridge. It was really yummy. Will definitely make this again and at some point also try it with chicken.

What a great way to use up paprika. is also good with mash.

Really nice. Not sure I understand the comments about it being hot/spicy though? I had to add chilli flakes in to actually give it a kick, the smoked paprika alone is NOT hot.

Thought this was excellent, full of flavour, only had normal paprika and couldn't get fillet so just used some meaty pork chops sliced thinly. Dropped some egg noddles into the pan a few mins before the soured cream.. Really tasty, filling, easy, and if using chops, economic.

Sorry but not a hit. If you don't want it to hot then reduce paprika. Found it too much

Great recipe! I tweaked it a bit though to use what I had but it turned out great! Thank you.

I agree with Alibee. Way too hot, and I love spicy food! I think the amount of paprika the recipe suggest is incorrect. Would use half that amount in future, the paprika was just too overpowering. i used ordinary smoked paprika, not the hot version.

This was not nice at all....can't understand the other ratings people have given, a waste of a good pork fillet.

Used pork tenderloin and it was simple and delicious to make. Left out all the sour cream because I have to be dairy free but the result was still very tasty.

Made this for friends and served with green beans and mash. Followed the receipe/ ingredients and would agree with the other comments that a little chilli powder or crushed chilli's would give it that extra bit of flavour. Everyone cleared their plates and will be making again.

Loved this recipe. In view of previous comments i added a half dozen slices of chorizo sausage and half a jar of freshona grilled red peppers which needed using up. It went down very well with everyone in the family. Will make this again - definitely.

really easy, really tasty. I put more paprika and cream in than suggested and the dish was ace. Will be making this agin. Whole family enjoyed it!!

Really speedy and tasty for a midweek meal. I didn't have paprika so replaced it with cayenne pepper. Didn't have chicken stock and sour cream either, so left those out and just flavoured the dish with salt and pepper. Just as delicious. Would recommend!!

Delicious! Made this with the full amount of (sweet) paprika and used fat-free Greek yoghurt instead of soured cream. Served over homemade bread instead of noodles/rice--it was absolutely perfect.

The kids done like mushrooms so substituted in a couple of red peppers along with a clove of garlic. The entire dish went down well served with pasta spirals and I will be making this again in the future.
