large artichokes (about 1 pound each)
Nice change from the usual method of cooking artichokes. Before I sauteed them, I rubbed the insides with a cut lemon and squeezed the juice from 1/2 of the lemon over the artichokes. I used more olive oil than butter which helps prevent the garlic from getting too dark. I added the juice from the remaining 1/2 lemon to the water or white wine. When serving the artichokes, I poured the sauce from the pan over them. Yum! Thank you for this recipe.
I really want to give this more stars, but 1/4 cup of water is too little! My artichokes started to burn in the pan and I had to rush to add more. Otherwise, they turned out well.
Wow! I love artichokes and always just boiled them before. Had fun getting the choke out, but I think I have a method now. I doubled the butter and garlic the second time I made it and doubled the water for steaming. I also doubled the steam time, found it was much more tender that way. I always dip my artichoke in a simple butter and lemon mix. The garlic was a wonderful addition to the flavor! And this week, artichokes are on sale. My boyfriend doesn't care for artichokes, so I just make this recipe with two artichokes as my complete dinner! Yum, yum, yum! A definite keeper! I can't wait to visit my folks and cook it for them this way! Thanks for the recipe. I'll also try some of the other suggestions folks have made so far.
I decided that I would do the opposite to try to recreate a dish I had at an Italian resturant. I steamed the artichokes first than I sauteed them. Yummy! Buttery and garlicky they were tasty!
I tried this recipe, and loved it. I thought scraping out the raw choke would be much more difficult, but I used a melon-baller,and it came right out. My daughter loved not having to deal with it while eating her artichoke. The toasty garlic flavor was great too! I will never make artichokes any other way now. WOW
This was outstanding!! My husband and I love artichokes and really enjoyed the garlic flavor. I replaced half the water with lemon juice although white wine or chicken broth might enhance the flavor also. Thanks for a great one!!
Very good and different way to make artichokes! I did, however, use 6 large cloves of garlic since we are garlic lovers. I also added 3 Tablespoons of Chicken Broth in the last 5 minutes of steaming because I have a very powerful stovetop and needed more liquid. Thanks for the recipe John!
I didn't want my garlic to turn bitter w/ the long cook time so I sliced it, sauteed it for a couple of minutes to infuse the oil & removed it from the pan before adding the artichoke. I normally would have chosen to steam it w/ wine nstead of water but I was serving this w/ a tilapia in white wine sauce & didn't want my flavors to be redundant so I used water & squeezed a half a lemon in. I served it w/a ramekin of melted butter for dipping.
