Sliced Potatoes with Bacon and Parsley
4 lbs yukon gold potatoes
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon white sugar
2 teaspoons coarse salt
1 lb bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 cup diced onions
2 cups beef broth
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley
Peel potatoes and place 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.
While the potatoes cook, combine the vinegar, sugar and remaining salt in a small saucepan and place over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, then pour over potatoes.
Saute bacon in a large skillet placed over medium-low heat, stirring frequently until browned and crispy.
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 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 reserved warm potato mixture and sprinkle with the reserved bacon and chopped parsley.
Gently stir to combine and serve immediately.
