Slow Cooker Mussels With A Creamy Wheat Beer And German Mustard Sauce
Beer and mustard in one dish. Sounds strange? Think again.
This is a recipe that seafood lovers and beer lovers will truly enjoy. I personally enjoy a good seafood dish and a bottle of beer once in a while. And what better way than to enjoy it in one dish, right?
So I got really excited when I came across this recipe. I said, it is worth a shot and I won’t lose anything if it is a fail. But luckily, it was not a fail and is certainly a hit. The wheat beer and mustard creates a luscious creamy sauce that blends swell with the baby potatoes and PEI mussels that you will truly enjoy.
Check out the recipe below.

- baby potatoes, cut into quarters - 1 ½ cups
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
- wheat beer - 1 bottle
- thinly sliced shallots - 1 cup
- butter - 2 Tbsp
- whole-grain German mustard - 2 Tbsp
- garlic, thinly sliced - 4 cloves
- PEI mussels, soaked in cold salted water and cleaned - 1 ½ lb(s)
- sour cream - ½ cup
- thinly sliced scallions - ½ cup
- For dipping: toasted garlic bread or crispy potatoes
- Put the potatoes in a saucepan and add cold salted water to cover.
- Cover the pan with a lid, bring to a simmer and cook until just tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain.
- Add the potatoes, beer, shallots, butter, mustard and garlic to a 6- to 8-quart slow cooker, cover and cook on high until the liquids are at a simmer, about 2 hours.
- Season with salt and pepper, then add the mussels.
- Cover and continue to cook on high until the mussels open, 15 to 20 minutes. Discard any unopened mussels.
- Stir in the sour cream at the end and finish with the scallions on top.
- Serve with toasted garlic bread or crispy potatoes for dipping.
This is best served with toasted garlic or you can use this as a dip for a bunch of crispy homemade potato chips. Try it out and tell me what you think.
Happy slow cooking!
