“Tender baby artichokes add richness to the potato hash. Aleppo pepper, from northern Syria, gives a sweet, earthy flavor to the steak and its accompanying aioli. Look for it at specialty foods stores or online at . If you can't find it, substitute 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika and 1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle chile powder. The Aleppo pepper is a variety of Capsicum annuum named after the town Aleppo in northern Syria. . . . . Recipe by Molly Stevens, found in Bon Appetit Magazine, 04/09. A bit labor intensive but it tastes wonderful and is worth it! :)”
