How to: Steam Artichokes in the Instant Pot

2 large artichokes
1 cup water, vegetable stock or white wine


Peel the stems of the artichoke. Remove the outer, tough leaves from the artichoke. Cut the top 1/2 inch or so off of the artichoke to reveal the choke. Place on the rack or in a steamer basket in the Instant Pot. Add the liquid. Close and press the STEAM button. Set for 10 minutes using the Manual button. After the time is up on the Instant Pot, quick release by turning the steam release handle manually to Venting. Remove the artichokes. Remove the choke. The artichokes are now ready for using in a recipe or eating as-is.

My thoughts:

This is the easiest way I have found to steam artichokes! It takes just over 10 minutes and the artichokes come out so tender, they are ready to chop or stuff or even just eat. Don’t have an Instant Pot? Try it the old fashioned way.
