Pork Paprika Served With a Syrah
Pork Paprika is a hearty, stewlike dish typically served over noodles – and it's one of my favorite comfort meals from childhood. The best part is, you won't be standing in the kitchen for hours on end to create this dish. It is actually quite the opposite, with minimal ingredients and a cook/prep time of an hour. Serving this with store-bought noodles saves on time and is convenient, but making homemade nokedli (spatzel) really gives this dish an authentic European feel. Served with a hearty Syrah, you'll have a one-dish meal perfect for warming up cold winter evenings.
- 2 pounds of boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1 1/2" pieces
- 2T olive oil
- 2 large yellow onions, diced
- 4T sweet hungarian paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 16-0unce package of wide egg noodles (cooked to package directions) or homemade nokedli
Start by heating the olive oil in a large pan on medium high. Add the onions and cook until they start to sweat and become soft and translucent. Add the paprika, stirring to coat and reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook, stirring frequently and careful not to burn the onions.
Add the pork to the pan, cover, and lower heat to a simmer. Continue to cook for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
The pork-onion mixture will cook down to make its own gravy and juice, which will coat and flavor the noodles you scoop it over to serve.
Pork Paprika makes for such a perfect stick-to-your-bones kind of meal that is full of savory flavor, simple to make and can quickly bring the family together for dinner!
