Definitely a keeper recipe!
I've made this soup several times and love it more every time! The first time, I made it exactly to the recipe specifications, but found it just a little lacking. The tenderloin was not the right consistency for what my husband and I were hoping for, so after that, I started substituting ground pork (after reading other reviews about using spicy sausage, I may try the spicy ground pork from our local butcher!), added two cubed zucchinis, and used about half the onion and replaced it with a roughly chopped leek. Other variations: remove the pork altogether (to make it vegetarian); add lima beans and sweet corn or carrots; add mushrooms and celery... I've left the paprika out completely (by accident) and it comes out just fine, as long as you replace it with some other kind of spice. Delicious!
Pros: Easy and fairly inexpensive to make
