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.

This was nice and simple to cook, but thought it needed a little bit more flavour. I added a clove of crushed garlic and mushrooms as well. I did half smoked paprika and half normal paprika, but if i do this again, then will definately use all smoked! I served mine with mash potato and a green veg. The pork was lovely and tender as well.

Really tasty! Similar flavours to a stroganoff, I added mushrooms and garlic which I felt were a good addition. I had it with rice which worked well.

This recipe was so very easy, and delicious. I made it for my non foodie husband who said it was a winner! I did add the garlic and i used smoked paparika, as suggested by fellow cooks, and have now made a big batch to freeze. Hopefully it will come be just as nice.

Simply DELISH - we like it with chicken, served with crushed potatoes and roast veg. My daughter uses Quorn
This recipe has been cooked so many times and shared with friends who all love it!!

Great dish! Very subtle and discrete taste - delicious! We eaten this twice, both times with some nice mash, which works really well. Highly recommended.

A simple dish that can taste and look very fancy. I add garlic, mushrooms and a little chilli powder when I do it, but it's a favourite.

This is DELICIOUS!

Works really well with chicken, and even QUORN!!! In fact, I think the Veggie version may even be nicer!

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

We served with crushed potatoes and roasted veg, but mash and steamed veg is great too!

Just tried this and loved it. Added garlic to the onion which I think enhanced the overall flavour and also thickened sauce slightly. Rich, full-bodied flavour and great with soft garlicky mash to soak up the sauce. Will definitely do this one again.

Cant understand where people went wrong with this. We love it. I do use smoked paprika though, better flavour, also do it in a big open wok so you can get the sauce to the right consistency. I add mushrooms too to make it more substantial. Lovely with baked potatoes and cabbage.

My family love this (I'm veggie but they're not). It goes well with rice and green veg. I usually add a little flour to the meat to thicken the sauce (about 1 heaped teaspoon). Really does need the cylinder fillets. Steaks are not as good.

I don't like to give bad reviews and only usually leave positive comments but I couldn't serve this to my family. The reason it gts even one star from me is because my kids were so happy that we got to have fish and chips. It tasted fairly bad but smelt terrible. Sorry

This was delicious and sooo easy! Tasted quite impressive, especially when served with fluffy mash with a bit of double cream added, it complimented the pork brilliantly.

I was a little disapointed with this one found it lacked flavour.
I also felt that cooking time was a bit excesive especially when using pork tenderlion, mine was ready in under 40 mins. The wife liked it though, so maybe I'll try again using hot paparika.
