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 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.

Warming and easy to make winter dish. Will absolutely be making this one again.

To amend my previous comment...

I have since realised there is a difference between smoked paprika and HOT smoked paprika... :) hence the query about whether it should have been tsps rather than tblsps... durrr! Still, it cleared the sinuses.

I've had this dish before and it's so tasty. However, I've now discovered I'm lactose intolerant. So for a creamy free, but tasty meal, with a bit of a kick. I tried the following, and it was fantastic:

Follow the recipe as above but take out the sour cream. Add:
Red pepper (diced)
2 tbsp cumin
An extra tbsp of smoked paprika
1 tsp easy garlic
1 tsp easy chilli
An extra tbsp of tomato puree
An extra 200ml of chicken stock

I served it was rice. Admittedlty it's probably a little bit away from the original recipe but it was light, flavourful, easy to make, and everyone loved it.

This was really nice, quick to make and very filling. I added some lazy chilli which gave it a nice kick and served it with fine egg noodles which worked really well. Definitely making this one again!

This was very yummy even without the sour cream but next time I'll plan more in advance and buy some

Have made this a couple of times now with egg noodles and we love it. Add lots of pepper and a bit of chilli. Will try with pasta next time but it's a new favourite!
