Ingredients

  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced fine
  • 2 red onions, chopped fine

  • 3 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 bunch fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cans beer (your choice)

Directions

Heat oil in a large stock pot. Gently saute garlic and onions until light golden brown, being careful not to burn them. Place clams in pot and season with salt and pepper.
