Mmmmm, yummy! I was taught by a Hungarian neighbor to make chicken paprikash, but it's very nice with the pork too. Prep and cook times are approximate.

I've been looking for this recipe for a while now - I used to make it all the time and then lost the recipe book that it was in. I am so glad that you posted it. Such a nice change of pace from regular stroganoff type recipes. Only change I made was to cut the liquid in half and cook the pork in the broth and spices in the crockpot for a few hours before stirring in the sour cream. Thanks!
