A New England Portuguese clam boil is kind of like the simplified version of a clam bake. Here's a simple recipe that can be made in less than a half hour.
Add stock to stock pot along with garlic, potatoes and onions and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer until potatoes are almost cooked through. Add corn at this step or boil in a separate pot.
Add the steamer clams, raise heat and boil until the shells open, about 5-7 minutes. Discard any clams that don't open.
