Mussels in White Wine

Also known as Moules a la Mariniere

4 pounds mussels
1 tablespoon butter
1 medium onion, sliced (about 2 cups)
1 large carrot, sliced (about 1 cup)
1 celery rib, sliced (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup dry white wine
Freshly ground pepper
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/2 French baguette, sliced

Figure about 2 pounds of mussels per person. Store them in the refrigerator, and rinse with cold water before using, scraping off the “beard,” the thin hairs with which the mussel attaches itself to rocks. If any are open, tap them gently, and discard any that do not close.

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute the onion, carrot and celery until they begin to shrink but not color, about 10 minutes. Add the wine and some pepper.

Add the mussels and cover the pan tightly. Raise the heat and boil just until mussels open, about 3 minutes. Do not over-cook.

With a slotted spoon, transfer mussels to 2 bowls, discarding any unopened ones. Bring pan liquid back to a boil. Cook about 1 minute to reduce, and set aside.

Sprinkle mussels with parsley and serve.

When finished, serve vegetables and broth (leave about 1/4 inch in pan as it may be gritty) with baguette slices.

Makes 2 servings.

All-American BBQ Sliders

1/2 cups ketchup
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 pound ground chuck
3/4 pound ground sirloin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 large red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
8 slices sharp cheddar cheese
8 small (3-inch) brioche buns or rolls, halved horizontally
8 lettuce leaves
8 tomato slices
16 slices bacon, cooked until crisp, slices halved

In a small saucepan, combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.

Pour sauce into a large bowl and set aside.

Crumble the chuck and sirloin into a bowl, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss lightly to combine. Shape into 8 (3 inch) burgers, about 1/2-inch thick.

Preheat grill to medium-hot and oil grill rack. Grill onions about 5 minutes on each side, or until softened and browned. Transfer onions to bowl with sauce; toss to combine.

Grill burgers, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Top with cheese during the last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking time, with grill covered, to melt cheese. Remove burgers from grill.

Grill buns cut sides down until toasted.

To assemble burgers, top bottom halves of buns with lettuce, tomato slices, and burgers. Spoon on onions, and top each burger with 2 pieces bacon and bun tops.

Pastrami Kimchi Reuben

1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 teaspoon dill pickle relish
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon Sriracha or other hot sauce
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
8 1/2-inch-thick slices rye bread
8 thin slices Swiss cheese
1 pound thinly sliced pastrami, at room temperature or warmed
1 cup store-bought kimchi, drained
12 to 16 dill pickle slices

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup, relish, Worcestershire, and Sriaracha.

Butter 4 slices of bread and put them butter side down on a large griddle over medium-low heat. (If you don’t have a griddle large enough for all 4, cook the sandwiches in batches.)

Spread a little dressing on the slices in the skillet, and then top each with 1 slice of the cheese. Divide the pastrami, kimchi, pickles, and remaining cheese among the bread slices. Spread more dressing on one side of the remaining slices of bread and top to make four sandwiches. Spread butter on the top of the each sandwich and cook until crisp and golden brown on one side, about 5 minutes. Flip and cook, pressing lightly with a spatula, until the second side is crisp and the cheese melts, about 4 minutes more. Slice each sandwich in half and serve.
