Mussels Steamed in Beer

The Ingredients you will need are:

1 Bottle of Beer
4 Garlic Cloves
1 Onion, Coarsely Chopped
2 Bay Leaves
1/2 of a Teaspoon of Dried Red Pepper Flakes
1 Tablespoon of Whole Black Peppercorns
2 Tablespoons of Assorted Chopped Fresh Herbs
2 Tablespoons of Fresh Lemon Juice
4 Pounds of Cleaned Mussels
4 Tablespoons of Butter

In a large pot with a tight-fitting lid, mix the beer with the garlic, onion, spices, herbs and lemon juice. Bring to a boil, add the mussels, and cover tightly. After 5 minutes, check the mussels. They should all be completely open and cooked through. In not, cover, and cook 1 to 2 minutes more. Discard any unopened mussels.
