DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare mussels, discarding any that will not close after a light tap.
  • 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.
  • Add chicken broth and wine. Allow to come to a boil.
  • 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.
  • Serve "family style" in the pot or in individual bowls. French bread can be used to sop up sauce.
