  • 3 onions, thinly sliced



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • 600g pork fillet
  • 2 tbsp paprika



    A spice that's central to Hungarian cuisine, paprika is made by drying a particular type of…

  • 300ml/½ pint chicken or vegetable stock
  • 100ml crème fraîche (about half a tub)


  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.

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!

Good Food has never let me down....until now. Oh my God this was revolting. I literally could not serve this and had to throw together a pasta dish for dinner at the last moment. Followed the recipe, including the wine and also added the garlic as suggested by a few reviews. Worst thing I've ever tasted, even my other half who'd eat anything once there's meat in it shuddered after a taste. Also, looked absolutely nothing like the picture, was more like some sort of hideous marie rose sauce! What a waste of lovely pork :(
