  1. Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add garlic and shallots, and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned. Add a splash of the beef broth, jalapeno, and red chile pepper, and simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors.
  2. Add the tomatoes, basil leaves, white wine, and remaining beef broth. Bring to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in a small amount of the light cream, and pour it and the rest of the cream into the stock pot. Return to a boil, and add the mussels. Cook until all of the shells have opened, about 5 minutes.

Excellent! I used the base recipe...green onion instead of shallots, pure beef drippings, chili pepper flakes and heavy cream. Served mussels with filet mignon...what a combination. Excellent re...

I like mussels!

love these.. thank you

This was a terrifc (and easy) recipe. Just the right combination of spice and richness.

I also found that just 4 lbs. worked out great. DEFINITELY making these delicious mussels again. Made no changes, doesn't need any.
