Slow-Cooker Pork Paprikash Recipe

Creamy, tangy, stick-to-your-ribs slow cooker paprika pork is served atop egg noodles for a hearty, one-pot meal. . Jennifer Olvera

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.
