"This is now the only way I will be making artichokes. I love the ease of preparation and the perfect texture of the finished artichoke..not too mushy and not too hard. I never before thought of cutting the artichoke in half to make it super easy to remove the choke, and it cooks in half the time as well. Try this recipe if you love artichokes, and you won't be disappointed. Be careful to keep enough liquid in the braising pan so the artichokes don't burn. This is a tip I'm sharing out of experience!!"

"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!!!!!!!"
"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!"
"Delicious & simple. Definitely a keeper!"
"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!!"
"Thanks for posting Geema. I enjoyed the artichoke cooked by you'r method. I did not have the old bay seasoning, but proceeded with the recipe without it. I tasted the subtle taste of the white wine. However the cook time was 50 minutes with lid on for me. I would have rated this a 7 if cook time had not been so off. (would have been horrified if I planed on this recipe that should have only taken only 20 minutes for somewhat of a gathering) and it didn't. I checked it for tenderness at 20 minutes, then 40 minutes and continued to cook another 10 minutes and I called it done and devoured it. Yum, non the less of the outstanding cooking time it was very tasty and I enjoyed very much I love artichokes! And I will try you'r recipe again with the old bay seasoning. I love artichokes"
"Had to cook way longer than 20 min, but otherwise delicious. Also substituted other spices for old bay because I didn't have any."
"Thanks Geema, terrific artichokes. The initial browning add another layer of flavor. It's great. Another technique for artichokes is always helpful. Plus, I got full approval from Sally!"
"I guess I don't know what I did wrong...the artichokes took twice as long to cook as mentioned and they ended up tasting too strongly of wine. I prefer just steaming the artichokes in spiced water, but this was something new to try. Thanks!"
"I think it was my fault that I did not enjoy these as much as everyone else...it was my first time making artichokes and I think I dug out the fuzzy part too much. And mine had to cook alot longer...alot of work..."
"WOW!!!YUMMY, YUMMY,YUMMY!!! This is the first time my family and I have ever eaten artichokes. Everyone loved them even the kids! We had them 2 times last week and the kids requested them again tomorrow. Thanks for posting this easy recipe. It was very helpful and easy for me to use. I have always been afraid to cook artichokes because they looked so hard to make! We love this recipe, thanks Geema"
"yeah, so i TOTALLY messed this recipe up and it STILL turned out AMAZING..Im convinced its COMPLETELY FOOL POOF. I LOVE THIS!!!"
"This deserves more than 5 stars! This was the first time making artichokes! My DH and DS never had artichokes this way. They gobbled them up. It took longer than 15-20 minutes. DELISH!"
"This was so fun to make. I had only had the old fashion type that my mom used to make in the pressure cooker. I loved the flavor and it was so much easier to eat having it cut in half with the hair scooped out. I will definitly use this recipe again when make artichokes. Thanks for posting Geema!!"
"Very good. Easy and clear directions. The kids really enjoyed this dish. Thank you."
"I have been enjoying this recipe a lot! Thanks for teaching me how to make artichokes. My kids even love 'em!"
"Wonderfully good, and a nice change of pace from steaming."
