  • 2 dozen little neck clams
  • 1 can or bottle beer
  • 1 tbsp butter


  • 1
    Preheat your pan over a grill, brassiere or stove over medium heat. If you are using a grill or brassiere, be sure to use cast iron.
  • 2
    Pour in beer (all of it) and add clams in a single layer. (It will likely take several batches to do all the clams - usually three batches for me.) Cover and cook, checking regularly, until the shells open wide.
  • 3
    Once the clams are all cook, in a small pan, melt butter and add two spoonful of the broth from the clam pan. Whisk together and then pour over the clams just before serving.
