Directions

Discard any mussels that are already open. Remove the beard attached to each, and wash the mussels in very cold water 3 to 4 times to remove the grit. Blanch the carrots for 2 minutes and set aside to cool. Put the diced bacon in a saucepan of cold water and bring to a boil. As soon as it comes to the boil, drain the bacon, add to a large pot with the butter, and saute over medium-low heat for 1 minute. Add the celery, onion, and carrots and cook for 2 to 3 minutes do not allow the vegetables to color. Add the beer and cook gently for 2 minutes. Add the goat cheese and stir to dissolve it in the liquid. Add the mussels and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover, bring to a boil quickly and cook for 4 minutes. (All the mussels should have opened). Stir the mussels, cover again and cook for a further 1 to 2 minutes. Stir again and add the parsley. Serve immediately with a plate of Belgium Fries. (Recipe follows).;
