This is a very tasty way to eat young artichokes! Thin sliced, slowly braised in a skillet in their own juices and served with a shower of soft pecoriono. This method is simple, and will yield delicious results even with larger, more mature artichokes. This makes a wonderful vegetarian sandwich or for the carnivore, a topping for a juicy hamburger. Artichokes prepared this way are also a great appetizer topped with a poached egg. Lidia Bastianich from Lidia's Italy. We are serving this as a side for one of the seders this Passover 2009.
