Easy and delicious recipe for potato celery mash and pork tenderloin steaks in an amazing, creamy paprika sauce. We make them with lots of vegetables and fresh herbs, and did we mention the amazing paprika sauce?



9.7 oz (275 g) pork tenderloin


0.5 onion

1.5 garlic clove

5.29 oz (150 g) carrots

0.5 red bell pepper

0.5 leek

0.5 zucchini

0.5 tablespoon dried paprika

0.71 oz (20 g) tomato purée

0.85 cups (2 dl) cooking cream

0.5 vegetable bouillon cube


Potato Celery Mash 

1.1 lb (500 g) potatoes

4.41 (125 g) celery

0.53 oz (15 g) butter

1 teaspoon salt

0.42 cups (1 dl) milk


1.06 oz (30 g) Serrano ham

0.3 bundle fresh spring onion

0.3 bundle fresh parsley



  1. Grab your KUMA Chef’s Knife or KUMA Santoku. Clean / trim the tenderloin of any parts you don’t want to eat. Slice the tenderloin into steaks of roughly 1.5 inches. Use a meat hammer to beat the steaks. Season them with salt and pepper on both sides. Put aside.
  2. With your KUMA knife, slice onion and garlic into fine pieces.
  3. Slice carrots, bell pepper, zucchini, and leak into rough chunks.
  4. Peel potatoes and celery (this is easy to do with your KUMA Paring Knife). Cut them into smaller pieces. Put potatoes and celery into a pot of water which just covers the vegetables. Bring to a boil, and once boiling turn down the heat a bit. Cook until tender.
  5. Grease a somewhat deep pan with a little oil/butter and cook tenderloin steaks until they get some color on both sides. Remove them onto a plate.
  6. Add a bit more grease to your pan. Add all your rough vegetables along with onion and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes until soft.
  7. Add paprika and tomato purée. Stir well so it gets a good fry, which helps activate the flavors.
  8. Add cooking cream, crumbled bouillon cube, and a little bit of water if your cream is too thick.
  9. Put the tenderloin steaks into the sauce and let it simmer on low heat for 20-30 minutes.
  10. While it simmers, let’s prepare the sides.
  11. Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C).
  12. Put Serrano ham on a baking sheet placed on a baking tray. Make sure there’s some space between each slice of ham.
  13. When oven is hot, put in the baking tray for 7-10 minutes until the ham gets crispy. Keep watch as all ovens are different and we don’t want to burn our beautiful Serrano. When it’s done, remove from oven to cool off, and then chop it into smaller pieces.
  14. Slice spring onion and parsley into fine pieces and put aside in a bowl.
  15. When potatoes and celery are boiled tender, drain the water and add milk, butter, and salt.
  16. Use a hand mixer or a potato masher to turn the contents into a mash. Taste with salt and pepper.
  17. Serve your potato and celery mash with the tenderloin steaks in paprika sauce and topped with Serrano crunch and fresh parsley and spring onions.
