Directions
  1. Prepare mussels, discarding any that will not close after a light tap.
  2. 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.
  3. Add chicken broth and wine. Allow to come to a boil.
  4. 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.
  5. Serve "family style" in the pot or in individual bowls.
  6. Portuguese crusty bread can be used to sop up the sauce.
