Mussels are extra good when steamed in a mixture of beer and wine. Sop up the lovely juice with crusty bread or serve the mussels over linguine.


Serves: 4 

  • 2.5 kg mussels, cleaned and debearded
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 440g tinned diced tomatoes
  • 5 large cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups (375ml) bottle beer
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) red wine
  • 2 tablespoons peppercorns in brine, crushed

Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a large pot (or the kitchen sink) soak the mussels 10 minutes in enough lightly salted cold water to cover.
  2. In a separate large pot mix the onion, tomatoes, garlic, beer, wine and peppercorns. Place the mussels in the pot and bring to a boil. Cook 10 minutes, reduce heat to low and continue cooking 5 minutes, until mussels open. Discard unopened mussels.
