I got these directions from allrecipes.com it came out pretty well, I think it could have stayed in a little longer, some of the leaves weren't as tender as they could have been. Maybe I don't have the right steamer. I dipped the leaves in olive oil lemon juice and some salt & pepper.
Fill the pan with just enough water to cover bottom. Bring to a full boil over high heat. While water is heating, trim and discard the stems and tough outer leaves of artichokes.
When water is boiling, place steamer insert in pot and set artichokes in steamer, stem-side down. Cover pot with lid and allow artichokes to steam for approximately 20 minutes, until tender.
