Last night I made mussels in a wine sauce. When I cleaned/debearded the mussels, they were closed. When the recipe was done, the mussels opened but not wide enough to pull the meat out- once the shell was opened, the meat was tough pulling out. I did leave it in a bit longer than anticipated bc my company had not arrived yet. Could it be I over-cooked them?
