This recipe only requires three ingredients, but tastes like a million bucks! It is extremely easy to make, and the end result of the sweet corn, the char from the grill and the hoppy flavor from the beer provides a unique experience!
Preheat the grill to 375 degrees. Use indirect heat by adding a plate setter on a Kamado grill, or turning off the center burners on a gas grill.
Pour four cans of beer into a Dutch Oven.
Add the Dutch Oven to the grill and bring it to a boil. This takes about 15-20 minutes.
Once the beer is boiling, add the ears of sweet corn.
Boil the corn for 5-8 minutes until the kernels are firm and tender.
Remove the Dutch Oven from the grill and set up the grill for direct heat.
Place the ears of corn over the direct heat for two minutes per side. This will be enough time for the corn to develop a nice, flavorful light char.
Remove the corn and sprinkle with aged Cotija Cheese and fresh parsley. Your family will love it!
Cheese: If you cannot find Cotija Cheese, substitute Feta or Parmesan.Direct Heat: Don't skip the direct heat part of the grilling. Even though it is only for a couple of minutes, the charring provides an amazing flavor that works well with the sweet corn.Boiling Corn: Boiling in beer adds an amazing flavor profile! So, it gets lots of delicious beer flavor instead of plain water. The purpose of boiling it is to soften the corn kernels.Reheating: Reheat it in the oven. Wrap it lightly with a piece of aluminum foil. Warm it in an oven that's been preheated to 350 degrees F. It will take 10-15 minutes to reheat. Leftovers: Wrap each of the corn cobs in plastic wrap or tin foil tightly. Then place the corn in a sealed container in the fridge. It will last around 3-5 days.
