How do you do artichokes


  • billyraybillyray Posts: 1,175



    Steaming: This can be done in advance to save time. Steamed artichokes can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. To trim for steaming: Cut stem of artichoke.

    Cut 1/3 of top off artichoke off, discard. Clip off tips of each leaf with scissors.

    Stand artichokes in steamer basket with 3 inches of water, cover and boil until fork tender at base, about 25 to 40 minutes depending on size.

    Marinating: Split cooked artichokes lengthwise, scoop out "choke" (fuzzy center). Mix oil, balsamic, garlic, rosemary, lemon juice and salt and pepper, in the bottom of glass baking dish. Place artichokes, cut side down, in marinade. Cover and refrigerate until ready to grill, up to a day.

    Grilling: Remove artichokes from marinade, save marinade for basting, place artichokes on hot grill cut side up and cook until deep golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes. Brush with marinade and turn to cook other side until deep golden brown, brush again with marinade. Serve hot or at room temperature.

    Advisable to remove the choke after steaming as opposed to prior, right?

    Billyray, shame on you. You know, pics or it didnt happen. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    EddieK76  I steam first, then remove the choke after I split them in half.

    travisstrick  I haven't done these since I got my camera and iPhone. I'll show pics next time I do them.

    I steam with the top chopped off, then set them upright on the vegetable grill pan, light spray of EVOO, then stuff with brie  between the leafs and kosher salt on top. Takes a while but they are super delicious!
