Put the garlic, shallot, wine, butter, thyme and mussels directly into the steamer without the tray. Secure lid. Select Seafood, set timer to 9 minutes and press Start.

Once all the mussels have opened and the timer expires, serve in shallow bowls with plenty of crusty bread on the side. Discard any mussles that have not opened.
