Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil the potatoes for an hour or so.
  2. Meanwhile, saute bacon until crispy but not burnt. Save the grease and drippings!
  3. Remove bacon to a paper towel.
  4. Remove potatoes and peel -- while they're hot -- it's a pain in the butt.
  5. Slice potatoes 1/4 in thick.
  6. In an oven safe baking dish, make 4 layers of everything (so do 1/4 of everything in each layer) like this from the bottom up: potatoes, onions, bacon, salt, pepper. Do not toss.
  7. Pour the bacon drippings evenly over the top.
  8. Pour the broth evenly over the top.
  9. Sprinkle evenly with the vinegar over the top.
  10. Now toss it all together, doesn't have to be perfect.
  11. Scatter the top with parsley.
  12. If you made it the night before, reheat in the oven at 250-300, you might need to add some more beef broth if it dries out in the oven.
