Ingredients
For the artichokes

  Chicken broth 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Red chili peppers 2 Medium
  Bay leaves 3 Medium
  Garlic cloves 3 Medium
  Red pepper 1 Teaspoon, crush
  Pepper To Taste
  Salt To Taste
For the marinade:
  Olive oil 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Water 3 Tablespoon
  Soy sauce 3 Tablespoon
  Balsamic vinegar 3 Tablespoon
  Crushed red pepper 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Pepper 1 Pinch
Directions

GETTING READY
1) Cut of 3/4th of the stem of the artichoke and peel off a couple of rows of leaves.
2) Next, trim 3/4th of the side from the top of the artichoke.

MAKING
3) Place the artichokes in a large pot with the top side down. Make sure the artichokes all fit snug so they don't move around in the pot.
4) Add 4 cups of chicken broth and add enough water to just cover the artichokes up to 2 inches in the pot.
5) Add the dry red chili peppers, bay leaves, garlic cloves, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper to taste.
6) Cover and bring to a boil, then simmer for 25 minutes.
7) Once cooked, remove and halve the artichoke through the middle, then using a spoon, scoop out the fuzzy flesh in the middle along with some of the leaves. You only want to grill the succulent leaves. Repeat for all 4 artichokes.
8) For the marinade: In a bowl, add the olive oil, water, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper to taste, then mix well to emulsify.
9) Smear the artichokes with the marinade and place over a grill for about 6 minutes, turning after 3 minutes.

SERVING
10) Plate and serve with the dipping sauce and wine.
