Here in Louisiana we are having exceptionally nice weather! It has not yet passed into the miserable humid weather, that we all know is on the cusp of rearing it’s ugly head! it was a clear and breezy 75 degrees today. This of course means another excelent day to fire up the grill!
Tonight we had a wonderful dinner of grilled beef chuck eye steak and corn on the cob! It is a wonderful time of year for corn on the cob, and at the Winn-Dixie we picked up corn cobs for 10 for $3.00. The chuck eye steak is one of my favorites on the grill. I always pick out one with a great marbling of fat, which results in a wonderfully tender steak.
The Hubby just goes with a simple salt and peppered steak for the grill, whereas I enjoy a marinade of Mr. Spice Garlic Steak Sauce and liquid smoke.

For the Corn on the cob, we made an unsalted butter mixture that consisted of 2 tbsp of unsalted butter, rosemary, dill and cilantro. You can mix whatever herbs in the unsalted butter you like. It all depends on your flavor pallet. We use different combinations all the time. We prefer to grill the corn in it’s own husk. To do this all you have to do is peal back the husk, and clean out the husk stringy inside. Make sure to leave the outer husk attached to the corn cob. Rub 1 tbsp of the unsalted butter mix on the corn cob, and re-cover the cob with the, still attached, outer husk.
After firing up the grill, or heating the coals if you use a charcoal BBQ as we do, place the corn on the grill first. The corn cobs will take about 20 min to cook. To get an even grill on them turn a quarter turn approximately every 5 minutes.
About half way through the corns cooking time, you should place the steaks on the grill. For a nice rare to medium rare you will only need to cook the steak for approximately 5 minutes per side. Turning once during grilling.
The hubby also made dill hassle-beck potatoes and harm cheesy Hawaiian rolls to accompany the meal. Not that we needed all of it, I saved more than half of the steak and the potato for tomorrows breakfast.
