    Cook's tips

    This recipe can also be done with pork fillet. If you want to freeze it don’t add the soured cream. Cool and freeze then when you want to use it, thaw and reheat then stir in the soured cream as above.

    Drinks recommendation

    The texture of the sauce with the hint of paprika
    make this ideal with a full flavoured white such as La Baume, La Grande Olivette, Chardonnay/ Viognier 2009 IGP Pays d’Oc, South of France.
