2 pounds small red potatoes (about 2 inches in diameter), washed well

5 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch strips (about 1/4 pound)

1 medium onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon sugar

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

1/2 cup beef broth

1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves plus extra for garnish


  1. In a large saucepan combine potatoes with salted water to cover by 1 inch and simmer until just tender, about 20 minutes.
  2. While potatoes are cooking, in a medium heavy skillet cook bacon over moderate heat, stirring, until browned and crisp and transfer with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain.
  3. Drain potatoes and let stand until cool enough to handle. Cut potatoes into eighths and in a bowl combine with bacon. Keep mixture warm, covered.
  4. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat from skillet and saute onion over moderately high heat, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon vinegar, and broth and simmer 2 minutes. Add onion mixture to warm potatoes with parsley and remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar, tossing gently, and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve potato salad warm or at room temperature, garnished with parsley.
