  • 6 strips uncooked bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds small golden potatoes
  • salt
  • ground black pepper
  • parsley for garnish


  • Cooked chopped bacon on saute mode in Instant Pot. Cook until crisp. Turn off pot and pour bacon on paper towel lined plate to drain grease. 
  • Add chopped onion into Instant Pot and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add bacon back into pot. Place potatoes in pot. 
  • In a bowl, stir together mustard, sugar, vinegar and broth. Pour over potatoes, bacon and onion in Instant Pot. 
  • Close and lock the lid. Turn vent to sealing. Manually pressure cook on high for 6 minutes. 
  • Do a quick release of pressure. Pour potatoes into serving dish and top with fresh chopped parsley. 


  • Use thicker sliced or center cut bacon
  • I made this with small golden dutch potatoes but red potatoes, and Idaho or Russet potatoes work well. 
  • You could substitute brown mustard or even honey mustard for the Dijon mustard.
