I grill corn on the cob quite a bit because it’s so easy to throw it on the grill at the same time as the meat. This recipe is easy ~ just grill the corn and slather on the butter. The butter can be increased easily if you are making more than 6 ears or divided for fewer ears. I usually make 3 ears of corn and the amount of butter sauce is just right for 3 ears.
Grilled Corn on the Cob with Sweet and Spicy Butter
6 lears sweet corn in husks
2 tbsps butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp chili powder
Carefully peel back corn husks to within 1 inch of bottom and remove silk. Pull husks back up. Soak corn in cold water for 1 hour before grilling.
Gill corn, covered, over medium heat for 25-30 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Serve with grilled corn.
Makes 6 servings.
