Servings 4


  • 4 small artichokes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter 4oz
  • 1 tsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Fresh chopped oregano
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  • Trim the tops of the artichoke by slicing about an inch from the top. Cut the stems from the bottom.
  • If your artichokes still have the little thorns on the petals you can trim the tips with scissors.
  • In an Instant Pot place the water and the artichokes stem side down.
  • Set the Instant Pot to high pressure and cook for 10 minutes with 2 minutes on natural release.
  • Let the artichokes cool while you make the butter dip.
  • Melt the butter in a small pan and add the garlic, oregano and cheese.
  • Half each artichoke lengthwise and drizzle the olive oil over them. Place on the grill with the inside of the artichoke on the grates.
  • Grill for about 2-3 minutes or until the inside starts to get charred. Watch them as they burn fast.
  • Turn the artichokes over and repeat on the other side.
  • Once the artichokes are ready, place them on your serving dish and spoon the melted butter mixture over each artichoke.
  • Serve at once with extra Parmesan and fresh oregano if desired.
