  • Summary

    A bit of soppressata and cheese stuffed ingeniously between each leaf gives these artichokes a heartiness worthy of a special course. (Eat them as you normally would, scraping the leaf with your teeth—but in this case you'll get a mouthful of flavor-packed filling, too.) Using a pressure cooker speeds up cooking time and also results in incredibly tender artichokes.

    Ingredients

    • 4 cups fine fresh bread crumbs from an Italian loaf (1/2 pound)
    • 1 1/2 cups grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (3 ounces)
    • 3 tablespoons finely chopped garlic (5 cloves)
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
    • 1/2 cup minced sweet soppressata (dried Italian sausage; 2 1/2 ounces)
    • 1 cup finely chopped provolone cheese (1/4 pounds)
    • 1/4 cup olive oil
    • 8 medium artichokes (8 to 9 ounces each)
    • 1 lemon, halved
    • 1 cup water, divided
    • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
    • 1 cup olive oil, divided
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic, divided
    • Equipment: a 6- to 8-qt pressure cooker or a wide 4- to 6-qt heavy pot with a tight-fitting lid
