MY TURN!! MUJHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Prepare for awesomeness! Mexican corn and a Meat Marinade

Mexican Corn

  • 4 ears corn
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Red chili powder, to taste
  • 2 limes cut into wedges, for garnish


Remove the husks of the corn but leave the core attached at the end so you have something to hold onto. Grill the corn on a hot grill or cast iron griddle pan until slightly charred. Turn it so it gets cooked evenly all over. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream and cilantro together. Grate the Parmesan in another bowl.  While the corn is still warm slather with mayonnaise mix. Squeeze lime juice over the corn and shower with Parmesan. Season with chili powder and serve with extra lime wedges.

-> I found that the corn needed to cook on the grill for over 15 min on about a medium heat. Keep rotating the corn occasionally so as to prevent burning. We love corn so we made 12 pieces of corn and tippled the recipe and it was way to much. Should have just doubled. Any other questions of grilling or cooking there are tons of internet sights. That’s where I learned to cook it.

The Marinade


  • 1 cu lemon juice
  • 1 cup soybean oil
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup black pepper
  • 1/2 cup garlic salt (recommended: Lawry’s)
  • 1/2 cup chopped garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried onions
  • 2 (4-pound) tri-tips, trimmed


To make themarinade, mix all of the ingredients except for the beef in a large mixing bowl. Place the trimmed tri-tips in a plastic container and pour the marinade over. Let stand in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours.

Heat grill to medium temperature.

Place tri-tips on grill at a 45 degree angle to establish grill marks and cook about 35 minutes, or until cooked to desired doneness. Remove the tri-tips from the grill and let rest about 2 to 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with your favorite side dishes.

->This would be good on any beef product but its so AMAZING on tri tip. Cook over medium heat for 5 min on each side ( for medium rare) cook longer for prefrence. For better results marinade over night. Let me know what you guys think!

    Oh for a side note, I substituted olive oil for the soy bean oil. Olive is so much better than that healthy stuff haha

    The corn was absolutely delicious. It turned out really good, but then, how can you go wrong with sour cream? I didn’t buy the best cut of beef. We used sirloin steaks, and I think they were cut way too thin. My beef with the beef was that it ended up very dry. It was pretty much jerky, and Jeremy thought it was too spicy. I really liked the marinade, though.

    This meal was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! It was great with the tri-tip. The marinade was very peppery, so if you want a milder taste, you could half the amount of pepper and you’d be just fine. We loved the corn. The chilli powder was really good combined with the lime flavor, and the sour cream and mayo detract from the heat to leave a very flavorful treat without the burn. 5 stars. *Amanda*
