Artichoke help [moved from General Chowhounding]

I've never cooked artichoke before. I finally found some and cooked it yesterday, and it was ... terrible :(

I followed a half-remembered recipe from a TV program;
(this is for the heart btw) Cut off the stalk and the leaves (I know, I know), chop the top 3rd of the artichoke off, slice in half longways, then remove the choke.

These ones are giants, so I cut them into 8 pieces, and then fried them in oliveoil and balsamic vinegar. I made up the cooking method, but I know they can be pan fried.

So I take them out as they're golden brown, and they're like, too firm or something. And I didn't like the taste. I like them when you buy them in a marinade or from a jar, so surely I must be doing something wrong?!
