Grilled or Oven Roasted Ranch Corn on the Cob

Quite possibly the easiest way to prepare corn — no preheating the grill, no peeling stringy cornsilk before it’s cooked (at which point it’ll slide right off) and you’ll still get a little bit of that same caramelized char on the exterior. The secret weapon for our Grilled or Oven Roasted Ranch Corn on the Cob recipe is the melted ranch butter, which gets brushed on at the end for a perfect finish.

Ingredients (3)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website. For dips, make and enjoy your dip creation. Then, refrigerate within 2 hours or discard.

Steps (6)

  1. 1
    Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. 2
    Place corn directly on the oven rack and roast for 20 minutes or until corn is soft.
  3. 3
    Peel down husks and use as a handle. Remove corn silks.
  4. 4
    In a small bowl, combine melted butter and Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning, Salad Dressing & Recipe Mix Packet.
  5. 5
    Generously brush Ranch butter over corn.

Grilling Instructions

  1. 1

    Light Kingsford® charcoal according to package directions. Soak ears in water for a few minutes to prevent burning. Remove from water, shake off the excess. Place your palm about 5-6 inches above the grill grate. If you can only hold it there for 2–3 seconds, the temperature is ready. Place ears directly on grill. Grill for about 20 minutes or until soft. Peel back husk to create a cob holder. Remove silk then brush on Ranch butter mixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grill it... The basics are here, but to really make it good you need to grill it! Start by carefully peeling back the hush and removing the corn silk. Nobody wants to fumble with hot corn so remove the silks FIRST. Next put the corn husk back. Soak the corn in water for 30 min to an hour so it wont dry out while grilling. Grill it till the corn is plump and desirable turning often. AFTER the corn is cooked and the husks are removed melt your butter and mix the ranch packet in. ****If you heat the ranch with the butter it will not work**** Sadly the first time I made this i mixed it all and the butter solidified. so i put it in the microwave and ended up with a gooey grossness on the bottom and an oil (with no ranch) on top. so again, prepare the butter when you are ready for it. Next apply ranch butter and enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Corn on the Cob Don't use hot butter when mixed with ranch dressing the dressing turned to glue and separated from the butter. Will try again with room temp butter.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Liked was different nice for a dull day pick me up Another request of my sons as we often use different season to make our corn on the cobb fun. A dinner for summer Idea that was created by son who has autism. He likes us to use a different topping each time we make corn on the cobb. The day we did this was around his graduation and he kept seeing this recipe online and begging we try it with his grad night dinner. My husband and I were tired after all the grad night festivities but agreed I honestly was surprised at the taste my family liked it and will try it again. Only issue had is spice amount each person loves a different level of it. When we do this next time for our family we will use a little less of the seasoning packet but we will do it again soon. Nice refreshing summer treat. Also have done same recipe on the stove top with canned corn.
