Corn ribs for grill and oven

We like to test one or the other food trend. We like to keep quiet about some test results. If you can’t say anything good, it’s better not to say anything at all 😉
But we really liked this trend!

Corn ribs are corn on the cob that are quartered and cooked until well marinated. You can then eat them practically like ribs.
We came up with a delicious and easy marinade for the corn ribs and just didn’t want to withhold this dish for grill and pan!

Corn ribs are really easy to make. The hardest part is waiting while they cook in the oven or on the grill! A good knife is of course also very helpful for quartering the corn on the cob. That was sometimes a bit of a challenge.

You can serve corn ribs perfectly as a side dish when grilling. In addition to various other vegetables and vegan grilled food, they go perfectly with almost everything. If you are a sauce fan, we can offer you our vegan aioli recipe or the vegan tartar sauce. Both have variations or basic recipes for mayonnaise that you can modify to suit your taste.
