Pork Paprikash Ingredients

  • 150g pork loin, cubed
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced (around 75 g)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, sliced (around 75 g)
  • 1 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 100ml chicken stock (might need more or less!)

  • 50g sour cream


1. Toss the diced pork in the flour

2. Heat the olive oil in a non stick frying pan or skillet and when hot, add the pork to the pan so that it’s evenly spread and the pieces are not overlapping. Cook for 3-4 minutes, turning so each side of the pieces gets browned. Remove from the pan and add to the slow cooker.

  1. While you could cook for 4 hours on high, you will get better results in terms of how tender the pork is by cooking for a longer period on a lower heat. 
  2. This recipe works best with sweet paprika which is, as the name indicates, sweet. You could use other varieties but depending on the type just bear in mind that it might be a bit spicier. (with the sweet paprika it is mild)
