My friend Georgia was saying how much she loves artichokes. I’ve only had them in spinach and artichoke dip, stuff like that. Today I decided to try out her little favorite.
I’ve never cooked artichokes before, I heard the thing to do is cut them in half and soak them in lemon water. For once in my life I didn’t have a lemon in the fridge but I did have a lot of bacon fat!
I boiled them in some water with just a touch of bacon fat. After they boiled for about 15 minutes, I tossed them in salt, pepper, oil, and minced garlic.
Then I put them in the grill, along with my bone in New York strip.
As the artichokes grilled I brushed them with more bacon fat, flipped them, added more bacon fat, and repeated.
When my steak was done, med rare, I took off the artichokes as well. The middle was soft, but I would have liked a little more char on them. I’ll have to try cooking them again with the lemon water.
Thanks for reading!
