Method

  1. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan add the onions and fry for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally until softened and lightly coloured.
  2. Cut the pork into sizeable chunks, then add to the pan and stir over a fairly high heat to seal and brown them all over. Stir in the paprika, cook briefly, then add the stock and bring to the boil.
  3. Cover and cook for 30-35 minutes, until the pork is tender. Stir in the crème fraîche and simmer for a further 2 minutes. (You can prepare the dish to this point up to 2 days ahead or freeze for up to 3 months.) If you have a few chives or a bit of parsley handy, snip this over the pork before serving with rice and a green vegetable – broccoli or stir-fried cabbage make the perfect accompaniment to this simple but delicious dish.

Made this for first time for my daughter & her family & it went down very well. Replaced the ordinary paprika with smoked & added some garlic. Will certainly make it again.

I used 1 tbsp smoked papika and 1 tbsp normal paprika and added 2 cloves garlic (crushed) before adding the stock. Also added a green pepper, cut into large chunks, towards the end of the cooking time. Cooked about half the recommended time and the meat was still overcooked. Pork fillet really doesn't take half an hour! Sauce was bland, nobody liked it. I won't be doing this again.

I tried this during mid-week and it was delicious. This is a new favourite and am definitely going to repeat this recipe. Husband loved it!

I was disappointed by the lack of any type of flavour. I added a generous spoon of each salt and some parsley, but it did not do it for me. Such a shame, as the picture looks so good!

Really nice - added garlic and mushrooms and served with rice and broccoli as suggested. Now a mid week favourite!

Made this last night and it was delicious. Used smoked paprika and 4 cloves of garlic, seasoning and chilli flakes and some tomato paste. Stirred in some spinach at the end and served with carrots and roasted squash. The meat came out wonderfully soft and the addition of the creme fraiche made a nice addition. Would recommend to use as a base recipe, just added some of your favourite flavours,

Don't understand the negative reviews, cut pork very chunky and was lovely and tender.
Used plain paprika, added mushrooms and chilli powder as suggested.
Used a little more creme fraiche than recipe so nice and creamy, but half fat version :)
Served with mash and cabbage. Fantastic, tasty winter dish.
Having left over sauce with pasta for lunch today...mmm!

i dont cook often because i tend to do everything wrong but i love cooking, my partner loved it and even wanted me to make it again the day after, i used some of the other suggestions and added garlic and mushrooms to the onions, used smoked paprika which i wouldn't change and chili powder.

This is one of my all time favourites. I make it with sweet smoked paprika and it has an amazing flavour. It's great with green cabbage and either rice or mashed potatoes.

I've made this using cream cheese and marscapone on different occasions depending on what I've got in the house and it's always been delicious. I've also been known to add some tomato puree if I decide it needs something extra.

Super tasty and really easy to make, the children even ate it all up without encouragement. We will definitely be making this again!

Really enjoyed this recipe! As per previous reviewers added garlic and chilli powder for added flavour, also used smoked paprika.
Don't think it would have been anywhere near as nice without these additions.

Also added spinach to bulk it out, mushrooms would have been great too (didn't have any in)

Husband had left overs today and has assured me its even better!

Tried this recipe tonight as we both love paprika and we love pork so thought it would make a good combination.. however this was not the case! It was horrible, hardly any flavour to it and the flavour it did have was just of the creme fraiche. It left a not very nice taste in our mouths and made the kitchen smell awful. We are not fussy eaters and enjoy a range of meals and flavours, but will definitely not be trying this again!

I'm giving this a go tonight, going to add some garlic & chopped chorizo to give some extra flavour, most excited....
