  1. Rinse artichokes under cold water, and use a sharp knife to cut the top 1/3 off of each one. Trim the stems to about 1 inch, and remove the smaller leaves from around the base. Use scissors to remove any remaining leaf tips. Cut each artichoke in half from the bottom to the top, then use a spoon to scrape out the hairy choke. Rinse again to remove any residual hairs.
  2. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, and saute for about 1 minute to flavor the butter. Arrange artichoke halves cut-side down in the skillet. Saute for about 5 or 10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Reduce heat to low, and pour in about 1/4 cup of water, cover, and let steam for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the artichokes are tender. A fork should easily pierce the stem.

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 t...

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 i...

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 st...

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 normal...

We love artichokes!! This recipe is one of the easiest and is delicious. I've served it twice and both times we've loved it. My husband likes it because the choke is gone and it makes eating t...

Excellent, but then I love artichokes so much Santa always put them in my Christmas stocking! I used white wine for part of the water called for which added great complexity of flavor. Not an ...
