Updated: Dec 19, 2023

If you're a fan of corn-on-the-cob and love to experiment with different flavor combinations, then this recipe is perfect for you! The Hot Butter Old Bay Corn on the Cob is a unique and delicious dish that is sure to impress. To make this recipe, you will need simple ingredients like beer, unsalted butter, salt, Old Bay seasoning, and corn on the cob.

Recently, I had the opportunity to try this dish at a crab spot called LP Steamer in Baltimore during the 4th of July holiday. After sprinkling some Old Bay seasoning on top, I was blown away by the flavor and taste of the sweet corn on the cob, and I knew I had to try making it at home.

After returning home, I bought some fresh corn and used my own recipe to recreate the dish. Although slightly different from the restaurant's version, it is still easy to make and a great side dish for a barbecue or to pair with a steak or chicken dinner.

If you're looking to add some excitement to your corn-on-the-cob obsession, then this Hot Butter Old Bay Corn on the Cob recipe is worth a try.

Steam Corn on the Cob in Husk is a particular way to cook corn, but the results are worth it. The corn turns out sweet, delicious, and moist.

Did you know Corn on the Cob can be cooked in several ways, including the microwave, stove, or grill with foil? However, if you want to experience the best-tasting Corn, then following these easy methods is a must. These methods have just a few extra steps, but they are worth it as they will become your new favorite cooking technique.

Also, did you know that Corn in the husk is fresher than pre-husked Corn? It's true! When you buy husked Corn at the grocery store, it never tastes as fresh as the Corn you husk yourself. The husks keep the corn fresher, and when cooked, the husk slips off quickly.

When corn is cooked, the husk immediately slips off.

Now, here's a little secret: when you cook Corn in its husk, it comes off easily, and the cooked skin also comes off in one piece, unlike raw skin, which always makes a mess. So, if you try this easy cooking method, you can always handle uncooked husking Corn again. Once cooked, the husk slides right off, making it easy to enjoy your delicious Corn on the cob.
