Buying tips, techniques, and recipes, no matter how you like them.

Slow cooker paprika pork, seasoned with thyme and caraway, is finished with sour cream and served over egg noodles. The robust, tangy Hungarian-style dish is one of my favorite hearty and comforting options during winter's dreariest months. Plus it's easy to make, and it feeds a crowd. I chose not to incorporate mushrooms because I find they get rubbery in the slow cooker. Instead, serve some on the side, oven-roasted in olive oil, lemon and thyme.
