A great side dish. You can substitute baby Yukon Gold potatoes for the regular ones; adjust cooking time accordingly.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place potatoes in a large pot with enough water to cover by several inches. Bring to a boil over high heat, add 1 tablespoon salt, and reduce to a gentle boil. Cook until potatoes are just tender when pierced with a knife. Do not overcook. Drain, cool, and transfer to a bowl.

  • While the potatoes cook, combine the vinegar, sugar, and remaining salt in a small saucepan and place over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Drizzle over the potatoes, and gently toss to coat.

  • Saute bacon in a large skillet placed over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until browned and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Drain excess fat from skillet, leaving a thin coat of bacon grease in skillet.

  • Saute onions in skillet with the reserved bacon grease until translucent but not browned. Pour in the beef broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until reduced by half; about 20 minutes. Pour the broth mixture over the potatoes, and sprinkle with the bacon and chopped parsley. Gently stir, and serve immediately.

This ended up being a good dish for us--but I modified it a lot in order for it to work. I can't imagine bf liking that much vinegar so I only put in a splash or too and I cut down the amount of beef broth as well. Instead of mixing all the liquids separately I browned garlic instead of onion with the bacon then added all the liquid and sugar (left out the salt bc bacon is plenty salty on it's own) and reduced it for about ten minutes then poured over the potatoes. Although I like how sliced potatoes look I'm not a fan of them in this dish since they fall apart and aren't easy to eat so they are probably better diced. All in all this has great potential but I completely modified it to make it palatable in our house so we wouldn't have liked the recipe as is. thanks for the recipe! Read More

Julia Child s recipe for French Potato Salad which I m very familiar with and like is very similar to this recipe so I knew it had good bones. I knew that even if I had to tweak it a little I d like it. Better to be safe than sorry I thought so I reduced the vinegar a smidge. When it came time to serving I really did like it a lot but I also thought if I had it to do over I d probably reduce that vinegar even more. As for Hubs he said he liked it but left half his serving on his plate. The way I figure actions speak louder than words. He did make the comment however that it was a little too tangy for his taste buds. So in hindsight using just half the vinegar called for would have been just right. As for the sugar I left it out and didn t miss it. Cut the vinegar a tad and this recipe is elevated to five stars and may even be better than Julia s hers doesn t have bacon! Note: I used small long red potatoes (not sure what they re called) and didn t bother to peel them. I sliced them 1/4 thick and they were cooked through but still pleasantly firm at about four minutes. Read More

Potatoes were way too vinegary and the flavors just didn't meld. Also it made ALOT...ended up throwing out most of it. Read More

I have to agree with the others- it's too much vinegar. I added some cheese on top and baked the whole thing. Not bad after that. Read More
