Mussels steamed with plum tomatoes, cilantro and beer
Typically mussels are cooked in a tomato or wine sauce. But a light beer such as Pilsner has a more subtle flavour than a dry white wine. This pale lager can be substituted with any other mainstream beer. If you want to get a more intense flavour, try using a dark beer instead, such as an Oktoberfest type. Serve these mussels with a sourdough bread, perfect for soaking up the delicious broth.
