Beef stuffed Artichokes Recipe

It’s Artichoke season so let’s start cooking!

Ingredients:

  • 12 small artichokes
  • ½ medium onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking spray
  • ½ kilo ground beef
  • ½ lemon
  • Pine nuts
  • Salt
  • Cinnamon
  • Pepper

Procedure:

Chop the onion into little cubes and cook in 1 spoon of vegetable oil (or cooking spray) in a pan. Fry them for about 5 minutes, until they become translucent and add the ground beef. Season with half a teaspoon of cinnamon; add salt and pepper to taste, and a handful of pine nuts.

Seasoned Ground Beef Filling

Remove half of the artichoke leaves (before cooking them) leaving only the inside smaller ones around the artichoke hearts. Cook the hearts in water for about 20 minutes. Once they are cooked remove all the leaves and leave only the base.

(Otherwise use canned artichoke hearts).
Place some vegetable oil or spray pan onto the Pyrex that is going to go into the oven.

Place the artichoke bases in the Pyrex and add the seasoned ground beef on each. Place the pan in the oven for about 10 minutes. Before removing them, squeeze a bit of lemon on each to add a touch of flavor towards the end.

Enjoy and Sahtein!
