Viennese Potato Salad

This recipe employs beef broth, a typical ingredient that is the backbone of Viennese cooking. Beef broth and stock are used in Viennese cuisine for soups as well as basting. Red or Yukon gold potatoes tend to work best for this salad, because their waxy texture holds up well. For variety, you can also add thinly sliced pickles.
