Used 1 onion, 150 ml of stock, 2 tbsp of paprika and puree, handful of dried chillies and cream cheese instead of soured cream. Turned out delicious and will be making again with rice, but I'd say the recipe is for 3, not 4 people.

Easy to make.
Was nice enough and would make again at some point but won't become a firm favourite as it was just ok.
Def not hot even with a chilli. I used creme fraiche

This is really delicious! I added about half a tablespoon of cayenne pepper as I only had mild paprika, which gave it a really nice warmth. I'll definitely make this again.

Tasty and very easy to make for a midweek meal. I added some harissa for an extra kick, and chopped roasted red peppers. Also used cream cheese instead of sour cream to stir into the sauce at the end as that's what I had in the fridge.

Quick & easy. Sauce was too thin for my taste, so added tsp cornflour mixed with a little water to thicken it. Did the job nicely. 100ml cream seemed quite a lot so only added a tbsp which lightened it perfectly. Very tasty; the smoked paprika came through well & gave it depth with a hint of sweetness. Lovely.

The pork was tough even though I cooked exactly the time given in this recipe. and low fat yogurt didn't work the magic... I wont be trying this again

I made this for my 5:2 fast day meal. I had it with a small baked sweet potato and some green beans and felt wonderfully full after it. I added some chilli, garlic and green pepper after reading some of the other comments. My husband has proclaimed it a winner (he doesn't do 5:2 so had regular baked potato with cheese and butter).

We enjoyed this recipe. Pork is not something which we use very often but I think this will be a recipe we return to in the future. Was quick and easy for a midweek meal.

Have just made this for our dinner tonight, but as we are watching our fat intake I have used very low fat cream cheese instead of sour cream and it's delish xx

Y-UH-UMMMMMMM. Thumbs up all round. Used red peppers instead of onions as kids don't like them and two tablespoons paprika. Plus can of chopped tomatoes and cooked for quite a while; really nice. Served with potatoes.

mmm delicious!! Served it with mashed potato, I didn't have smoked paprika so used ordinary paprika and put in a small amount of chipotle paste. Added a red pepper as well as mushrooms, next time I'll probably chuck in some other veg too. Instead of soured cream I added plain fat-free yogurt just before serving. Very tasty.

Tried this recipe for the first time today and served it with sweet potato wedges, it went down fantastically. Simple and delicious.

Try adding Cayenne pepper in a 1 Cayenne to 2 Paprika ratio. Has a nice kick!!

There is a slimming world recipe very similar to this. However instead of mushrooms it's red peppers and I found it had a deeper taste. Worth a try, it went down well in my household...with people who would normally have a pot noodle for tea.

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!

Really tasty. So quick and easy :)

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.

Really delicious-I added Chilli flakes, a little garlic and whit wine.
Went down really well, is easy to prepared. Had it with Tagliatelle.

All paprikas are not created equal. Taste a little first on your tongue to see how fiery it is before you add. I prefer the smoked paprika which comes in red tins but it's getting harder to find as the supermarkets introduce their own brands. Disappointed with Tesco's Spanish Smoked Paprika which is all fire and no smoke. It was expensive, too. If you've got a fiery brand, you'll obviously need less than the recipe says. Hope this helps.
