This was very very good! I made this exactly as written, served it up with some Italian bread, and sat back and basked in the compliments. Thank you so much for posting.

Fantastic flavor! Made exactly as posted, except I use4d 1 cup chicken broth and 1cup Foster's Lager (which I needed to use up). The garlic really shone through, and the bread is mandatory for soaking. Made for ZWT8,

This recipe is fabulous! I made half the amount for 2 of us, using New Zealand Kiwi green shell mussels. I made this as listed and used a slice of nice whole grain bread to sop up the delicious broth. Made for ZWT8. Thanks ~Leslie~! :)

Awesome! Loved the cream broth and cooked and served as directed other than I was a little more generous with the garlic ;-). A really tasty & quick dish.

Wonderful. And extremely easy to make, not a huge time commitment for this one. I added a bunch of fresh thyme sprigs at the same time as adding the broth and mussels to the onions; and they turned out almost identical to the fabulous mussels I get at a local restaurant. Served with matchstick fries and frites sauce, and crusty bread, it was an amazing accompaniment to the football game this afternoon. :)

I have been looking sooooo long for a mussel recipe that does not have white wine in it.. & I have found it in this recipe!! It taste just like the ones I get @ my Favourite restuarant! I did read a couple of the revies & saw that salt was an issue so I only used 1 cube of stock & it was perfect not salty @ all.. I also did not have any celery on hand, used only mussel meat but did follow the rest of the recipe to the T.... I will never make mussels any other way but this! I JUST LOVE THEM!

I made this with clams and shrimp and it turned out very tasty. It was a bit salty for my taste, but perhaps I reduced the broth too much. Made for ZWT5.

I love mussels and these are great! I had to use creme fraiche instead of sour cream and I thought it was delicious! Served it sliced baguette to soak up the wonderful broth. Made for ZWT 5.
