Steamed Mussels in Beer
Bring 2 cups beer, 1/2 cup diced onion, 5 cloves minced garlic, and 2-3 sprigs fresh thyme to a simmer in a large pot. Simmer about 3 min. Turn heat to high and add 4 lbs scrubbed and debearded mussels. Cover and cook, stirring twice, for 5-8 mins. depending on size of mussels and pot.
Transfer mussels to a large bowl with a slotted spoon (throw away any that didn't open) add 1/2 stick butter to pan juices and swirl to combine and make a sauce.
Stir in 1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley and pour over the mussels.
