Oooooh, these artichokes were so goood!!! I used half wine and half water to cook them in. Delicious! I have always steamed them and now I will use this method. Lots of flavor! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!

Unbelievably perfect.... The garlic, the butter, the wine- just divine. By far the most delectable artichokes in history. YUMMMM! **Update.... I have made these delicious artichokes handfuls of times now, and EVERY time, I realize that the yes, the wine is a divine addition, but it is truly the hot sauce (we use tabasco) added to the butter that makes them other world-ly. So, so, so good. You must try them!!!!!!!

These were the best artichokes we'd ever had. I made one change - we took SOME of the juice left over and mixed it with mayo. Yeah, not healthy but DIVINE (oh, we used sriracha)

I've always enjoyed steamed artichokes but the added flavors of this method are great. I do consider the cleaning of the fresh artichoke rather tedious but it made eating the finished product SO much simpler. The simple addition of sriracha to the melted butter was sublime. Thanks Geema!

Delicious! I loved the butter with sriracha sauce in it! Served this with some ciilantro lime rice and garlic tilapia and it was an amazing meal! I did have to cook my artichokes a bit longer, but they were pretty large. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Man o man was this good. A little pain to prepare the artichokes, because fresh artichokes are tough and difficult to cut. I wonder if it would be easier to cut the choke out after they are cooked and softened...Anyway, this is simple and very very easy. I didn't have Old Bay seasoning, so I used Penzey's Turkish seasoning. Still tasted amazing.

Best Artichoke recipe by far, i think the cooking time differs depending on how tight a lid you have and how often you remove the lid. I have made them and the 20 minutes of undisturbed steaming is just about right on. Congratulations!

Easy to make, looks great to serve, the sauce is great for dipping. The kiddos were even begging to share the "adult vegetable". We made a big deal about sharing and now we have them hooked for life!!
