Ingredients for 4
4 whole artichokes, trimmed and cut in half
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
8 cloves garlic, peeled
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Lemon wedges, for serving
Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 180°F (82.2°C).
Place one tablespoon of butter and one garlic clove in the center of each artichoke half. Season with lemon zest, salt, and pepper.
Place artichokes in a large zipper lock or vacuum seal bag. Seal the bag using the water immersion technique or a vacuum sealer on the dry setting. Place the bag in the water bath and set the timer for 2 hours.
About 20 minutes before the artichokes are finished, heat a grill to high.
When the timer goes off, remove the bag from the water bath. Remove the artichokes from the bag, brush with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Discard cooking liquid.
Grill artichokes over high heat until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
