Most instant pot mussels recipes based on steaming the mollusks in a mixture of dry white wine and a few types of allium, both garlic or shallots. This one requires each onion and garlic. As a substitute for wine, gentle lager beer lends a toasted, gently bitter taste that’s fantastic with the butter that’s blended in proper on the finish.

This dish of mussels serves with a baguette or different bread for dunking within the broth, which is arguably simply as scrumptious because the candy mussels themselves.

Tips to prepare mussels to cook in the instant pot:

Most mussels you purchase on the fishmongers have been farmed and are very clear. So, there’s no want to clean or soak or de-beard them except you’ve harvested them yourself off a rocky, seaweed-laden coast (or are fortunate sufficient to search out wild mussels at your fish retailer).

A fast rinse is all of the farmed forms want earlier than going into the pot.
