Sriracha Beer Butter Grilled Corn


Sriracha Beer Butter Grilled Corn-P

I was once invited to leave The Viper Room when the guy I’d been chatting with escalated past douche bag right up into unignorably obnoxious territory and I was sweep up in his wake. I not so subtly parted ways with him to cross the street towards The Roxy when he escalated further,”You’re leaving?! I pulled out my best stuff for you!” I had no idea that he’d been trying to get somewhere with his meaningless rambling.

Oh, you mean the uber impressive story about having lunch with Alan Thick last week? Or telling me that your ex girlfriend was a sexsomniac? Or bragging about stealing wifi from your neighbor? Because it was all gold, so clearly I have no reason to leave with this depth of conversational wealth that’s being offered to me.

Sometimes, people just try too hard when they want to impress. We can do the equivalent of Over Sharing Drunk Viper Room Guy with food. We can try too hard, do too many things, and make a mess of it all.

Keep it simple this summer, some grilled produce, good ingredients, real butter and great beer.

And save the stories of your ex-girlfriend for your guy friends and only after they’re too drunk to object.

    Pffff bahahaha that guy sounds like such a douche…although, I would enjoy eating a meal with him just to hear his ridiculousness. This corn!? Simple, but outrageously unique! BEER BUTTER ALWAYS! Love!

    Did this tonight – just on a regular oven grill pan – was insanely
    Good. Can’t even imagine how good it would be on a BBQ grill.

    It seemed like The Viper Room always pulled out the douchers, just like New Years Eve pulls out the amateurs. Super funny story. + Love your corn!

    Did you grill the corn in the husks?

    • Jackie June 13, 2014 at 8:58 am #

      No, remove the husks. But if some of the stalk remains, I leave that, makes it easier to grab onto when you eat it
