    threeovens's Note:

    This is the only way my husband wants his mussels prepared; it is a regular around our house. Instead of steaming the mussels in a white wine, garlic sauce - red wine is used. Yum.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare mussels, discarding any that will not close after a light tap.
    2. 2
      Heat olive oil, or combination olive oil and butter, over medium heat in a dutch oven. Saute garlic about 5 minutes, but do not allow to brown.
    3. 3
      Add chicken broth and wine. Allow to come to a boil.
    4. 4
      Add mussels and cover. Steam about 2 - 3 minutes until shells open. Do not overcook or mussels will become rubbery. Discard any unopened shells. Garnish with fresh, chopped parsley.
    5. 5
      Serve "family style" in the pot or in individual bowls. French bread can be used to sop up sauce.

      This was very good! I love mussels, garlic and wine; especially combined like this. Had a nice loaf of french bread to sop up the delicious broth.
