This was discovered during a meal planning session to get through lockdown. It's amazing, so simple and yummy. I don't usually eat pork, I find it boring, but this is great. Thanks.

Ashley, as soon as I read the recipie directions I questioned it immediately then after I saw your comment I was like well there ya go. You should never boil milk or cream when it is for a sauce. It cause it to look curdled and separate from the rest.

This recipe is great. If it seemed bland you just needed to adjust the seasonings. To Ashley: I wonder if you should try cooking it in a different skillet, maybe it’s the cast iron that is causing the issue

I’m giving this 5 stars because I know that it would be amazing! However, I’ve made it three times now and every time something happens to my sauce. I followed the recipe 100% and my sauce keeps separating! I don’t know what I’m doing wrong, I even took it off the heat a minute earlier than recommended once my sauce was starting to thicken. I use cast iron so I know it holds heat longer. Does anyone have any recommendations? I am desperate for this to turn out well. It still has an incredible flavor so I’ve just been added butter, salt and pepper to my noodles instead of the sauce.

I made the folllowing changes: first I sautéed sliced/semi diced red onion, two garlic gloves smashed and chopped and sliced mushrooms. I added the pork to that which had almost two TBSP of paprika and then added a cup of cream. Very good. The noodles I seasoned with salt, pepper, a little butter and paprika.

I added red pepper, mushroom, garlic powder and lemon juice. Also a little extra heavy cream and dried parsley. The meal was delicious and my family enjoyed it and asked for it to be saved. I'd call it a success. Thank you.

Found this to be a little bland. I'll add extra spice next time, but will make it again.

I have never made a dish like this before. It was creamy and delicious. I added butter, s & p, and Parm., to the egg noodles and then tossed with the pork.
