Kartoffelsalat wie bei Muttern (Heilig Abend Edition)

By Timo Meyer

Potato salad like mother's (Christmas Eve Edition)

Ingredients for 4 persons:

  • 525ml pasture beef bone broth
  • 1.25 kg waxy potatoes
  • 1 medium onion
  • 100 g smoked streaky bacon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 60-80ml white wine vinegar
  • salt and sugar
  • pepper
  • 1 bunch of chives
  • 8 Vienna sausages from a trusted butcher
  • 2 tbsp cumin (optional)

And so it goes:

  • Boil the potatoes (preferably the evening before) unpeeled, with plenty of salt and the caraway until soft. Peel and dice onion. Dice bacon and fry in a pan.
  • When the bacon smells wonderful and becomes translucent, add the onion. Add a pinch of sugar and let it caramelize, add the vinegar.
  • Deglaze the bone broth with the grass-fed beef and let it reduce to a quarter. Add the mustard and olive oil and stir in, set aside.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into bite-sized pieces. Pour the sauce over the potatoes and fold in. Season with salt and pepper. Cut the chives and add them on top.
  • It's best to make it a few hours before consumption, so that the whole thing can still soak nicely. Warm up the Viennese and serve the whole thing on plates.
  • Happy Holiday!
