How to Steam a Crab


  • Crabs
  • Beer or Vinegar
  • Crab boil seasoning


Get a black steamer. Put crabs in water. Add seasoning. Put more crabs on top. Let them steam for 40 minutes. When you put them in they are blue-green, but wait until their shells are orange-red and their bellies turn white. Then you can take them out, they're ready to eat.
