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.

Tried this last night and added the garlic which was definately a good move. Having seen the comments I also added a teaspoon of harissa paste as I only had regular paprika and I'm glad that I did as it gave it a lovely zing!!

I absolutely love this dish. I've served it to friends for supper on many occasions and they all love it. I would definitely recommend it.

This was disgusting, lacks flavour and has a nasty kick to it. I do not recommend this recipe

I added dried chilli flakes to spice it up and also added diced red and green peppers which neede using up - went down a treat and will certainly make it again.

One of my absolute favourite meals from this website. Have made again and again since I found the recipe.

Delicious and very easy to cook ... think I too may use smoked paprika next time for a more spicy taste. Worked really well with the stir-fried cabbage.

So simple and tasty - served it with rice, but looking at comments will also try it with mash. Hubby and 14 yr old son loved it. Only complaint would be the sauce was quite thin - will thicken it a bit next time.

Made this today and really enjoyed it, the kids and hubby loved it too. I doubled up on teh recipe and used smoked paprika. I will definately make again, will probably add mushrooms, chilli powder and chorizo next time to give it a kick although it is great as is!!

I liked this dish. I added a sliced garlic clove and used smoked paprika after reading other peoples comments. I also used pork rib steaks which I always find far better than fillet as it doesn't dry out and is also more cost effective. I served it with rice and green beans, it was lovely and I will certainly make it again.

Love this dish, made it several times now. Really cheap and easy. Good with mushrooms in and I use diced pork to keep the cost down.

This dish really didn't do it for me as it lacked flavour. Two tablespoons of paprika seemed an awful lot - must be a whole jar - soI only added two heaped teaspoonfulls of smoked paprika, but I also added garlic, mushrooms and a generous dash or Worcester sauce. Maybe paprika is an acquired taste, but it tasted a bit musty to me. The meat was tender though and the texture of the sauce nice.

This was great to leave over night in a clay pot and eat the next day for tea, full of flavor, loved it, I did add chilli powder and garlic.

No, I said ''NO''

This is really tasty! I read the reviews before trying it out and the verdict seemed to be split. Taking some of the advice, I added a clove of garlic to the onions and it gave the dish a real depth. I cooked with chicken not pork but will definitely try again with pork. With only 5 ingredients and most of them staples, how can you not give it a go!
