Artichokes with Ground Beef

(Kıymalı Enginar)

Artichokes with Ground Beef
4 medium-sized Artichokes, peeled, cleaned (see Artichokes with Rice in Olive Oil)
1⁄4 cup water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp sugar

~150g (5 oz) ground beef, lean
1-2 tbsp onion, finely sliced
1 tbsp canned crushed tomatoes
1⁄4 cup carrots, diced
1⁄3 cup sweet peas, frozen, rinsed with hot water
~1⁄4 cup warm water
1⁄4 cup hot water
2-3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Parsley, chopped

Place the artichokes in a shallow pan. Add the water, olive oil, sugar and salt. Cover and cook at medium heat until the artichokes are tender.

Meanwhile, sauté the ground beef and onion with crushed tomatoes. Add the rest of the filling ingredients. Cover and cook at low-medium heat until the vegetables are softened. Turn the heat off.

Fill the artichokes with the ground beef in the same shallow pan. Pour the 1⁄4 cup hot water down the side of the pan. Drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes at medium-low heat. Garnish with parsley and serve.

Makes 2 servings.
