Mussels In Lager

Ingredients

  • 2 cups lager
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 cup drained canned diced tomatoes
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 Turkish or 1/2 California bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 lb mussels (preferably cultivated), scrubbed well and beards removed
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Instructions

  1. Heat butter in a wide 5- to 6-quart heavy pot over moderately high heat until foam subsides, then cook onion, celery, tomatoes, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, salt, and pepper, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are softened, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add beer and bring just to a boil. Add mussels and cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until mussels open wide, 4 to 6 minutes, transferring them to a bowl as they open. (Discard any mussels that remain unopened after 6 minutes.)
  3. Remove pot from heat. Stir together mustard and cream in a small bowl, then add mixture along with parsley to hot broth and whisk until combined. Discard bay leaf. Serve sauce over mussels.
