German Potato Salad

German potato salad 

This German potato salad does not contain mayonnaise instead you pour a combination of hot beef broth and a lot of vinegar over it. This way you need only a couple of tablespoons of oil. The trick here is slicing the potatoes and dressing them while they are still quite hot. This allows the seasonings to penetrate before the starch on the outside cools and sets.

Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:
Serves: 6
  • 700 g boiling potatoes

  • 125 ml beef broth

  • 30 ml minced onion

  • 60 ml white wine vinegar

  • salt

  • 5 ml brown mustard

  • 15 ml minced parsley

  • 7 ml minced chives

  • 45 ml salad oil

  1. Steam the potatoes

  2. Arrange them in a single layer in a steamer basket and place the basket over a pan of rapidly boiling water

  3. Cover and cook until they are tender, about 15 minutes (the time will vary depending on the size of your potatoes)

  4. As soon as they are cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes, if you like. Cut the potatoes crosswise into 12 mm pieces.

  5. While the potatoes are steaming, bring the broth to a simmer in a small saucepan

  6. After cutting up the potatoes, combine them with the onion in a mixing bowl

  7. Add the vinegar to the broth and pour the mixture over the potatoes

  8. Set aside until the potatoes have cooled, stirring gently from time to time to coat well

  9. When the potatoes are cool, pour off any broth that remains

  10. Season to taste with salt

  11. In a small bowl or lidded jar, combine the mustard, parsley, chives and oil and stir or shake vigorously to make a smooth mixture

  12. Pour the mixture over the potatoes and stir gently to coat well

  13. Serve warm or at room temperature.
