Steamed Artichokes with Butter may be on lots of restaurant menus, but with how easy this is to make at home, why pay that high tab to eat out? Our two-step easy artichoke recipe will do you proud.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 large whole artichokes, stems trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
What To Do:
  1. Fill a large pot with 1 inch of water. Place artichokes in pot, cover, and bring to a boil over high heat.
     
  2. Steam artichokes 20 minutes, or until tender.
     
  3. Remove artichokes to a plate and serve immediately with warm butter.
Note

These make a great appetizer but there are so many other tasty and simple ways to use them, too, like our Chili and 'Chokes dish.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I usually use water about 1/2 way up the artichoke. Also sprinkle with parm when they come out. Squeeze it as you sprinkle so that the cheese gets down between the leaves.

I love artichokes and eat them almost every day when they are in season. I usually steam them in an electric steamer and add lemon juice to the butter. Yum!!

How do you "trim" the artichokes?? I have eaten them, and they are really good! But, I have Never prepared them. Would like to learn how to do this. Thanks!

I usually cut off the stems and about an inch from the tops so that they are flat, and then use kitchen shears (or scissors) to clip the sharp edges off the leaves. Then I will peel the leaves off that I know will not have much "meat" in them by hand. Place in my steamer and steam for about 32-37 minutes. Hope this helps. You probably would need to see a demo.

NEVER HEARD OF ONLY 1 INCH OF WATER I ALWAYS COVER AND STEAM THEM. I WILL CERTAINLY TRY THIS ONE. THANKS

Can't wait to make. Sound so.......delicious. Thank you!
