Maybe I just don't have the knack for cooking w/ fresh artichokes, but the effort to taste ratio just wasn't there for me. "

Dec 15, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

One of my favs, w/ a few modifications:
1) Eliminated pancetta (it's already a heavy dish b/c of the beefiness of the short rib) and chocolate (more due to personal preference)
2) Used 4x as many carrots (makes the sauce a little thicker)
3) Increased garlic and red wine (~1 cup instead of 3/4 cup)"

Followed recipe pretty closely, except using dried herbs instead of fresh, increasing carrots (1 lb for 4 lb chicken), and substituting green bell peppers instead of celery. Also added a few squeezes of lemon at the end. Very tasty, but next time I will make half portion extra of the herb paste."

Tasty way to use a cheap cut of meat. I made a few modifications:

- ignored the salt measurement and seasoned to taste along the way
- substituted beef broth for chicken broth
- reduced cooking time by 15 min (this might have been because I only made 1/2 lb meat so it cooked faster)
- added 1/2 poblano...

I also put significantly more arugula than called for (eyeballed it) so that the meat to veggie ratio was more balanced"

- substituted marsala wine (using slightly less than the white wine called for, and using chicken brothh as filler)
