Cooking Club:

This recipe was submitted from my sister-in-law Rachel. This is the one Cooking Club Meal this month that my kids actually liked, so definitely some bonus points for that.

Pork Paprikash
From Martha Stewart Everyday Food)

Serves: 4

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


Coarse salt and ground pepper

8 ounces wide egg noodles

1 TBLS butter, cut into pieces

1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound), excess fat and silver skin removed, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick pieces

2 TBLS sweet paprika

2 TBLS olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 can (14oz) whole peeled tomatoes in juice

½ cup sour cream

chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook noodles until tender. Drain and return to pot. Stir in butter; cover and set aside.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine pork with 1 TBLS paprika; season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. In a large skillet, heat 1 TBLS oil over med-high; cook pork, tossing occasionally, until lightly browned on all sides, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

Return skillet to stove; reduce heat to medium. Add remaining oil and onion; cook until onion is soft, 4-5 minutes. Add pork, remaining TBLS paprika, tomatoes with their juice, and ½ cup water; bring to boil.

Reduce to a simmer; cook, until sauce is slightly thickened, breaking up tomatoes with spoon, 2-4 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper. Serve over noodles, garnish with parsley.


Next Saturday I will post the final recipe for this month. Remember, if you make any of these feel free to leave a comment or email me emmy (at) emmymom2 (dot) com and I would love to feature your review.


  1. see I would totally eat this. It's getting the picky ones to eat it. Rich would eat it too, but pick out the tomatoes. Haha. Hmmmm...I need to do some inventory...I just might have all the ingredients.

  2. Wow, that looks really good! I wonder if it would still work if you used fresh tomatoes instead of canned?

  3. I really love pork and egg noodles. Sounds wonderful.
