I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Steamed Artichokes
...in your mind.

Steamed Artichokes

Weird looking? Yes. Simple to cook? Yes. Delicious? Oh hell yes! Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 45 minutes Total Time: 50 minutes


  • 2 or 3 artichokes, approximately 1 for every 2 people
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme


  1. Cut the stem off the bottom of each artichoke so it will sit flat, and about 1 inch off the top of each
  2. Then cut the point off each leaf (to keep you & your guests from getting poked)
  3. Place artichokes in large steamer with about 3 inches of water below, cover with a lid and steam about 45 minutes, or until you can pull off a leaf off easily
  4. While it cooks, melt the butter in a small pot with a minced clove of garlic, lemon juice and a thyme
  5. Put artichokes on a serving plate with a bowl of the dipping butter beside.
