Steak rub and roasted corn

Again we got lucky and got some steaks on sale found this rub that is supposed to be like Outback Steak house. Now this was one of our favorite steak houses to eat out at as they also had add on shrimp. We love the Cesar salad and have tried to duplicate the recipe but to no avail. To go with this we thought we would try a roasted corn on the cob as we had a little queso fresco cheese left over. This is a very mild cheese and when we made this again we used feta as it has more of a kick. We also did it in the oven as it was raining outside. Steak was cooked on the George. Oh yes the purple looking stuff is mushrooms and cauliflower with a little red wine and cream. Looks funky but tasted good. And the corn was to die for. We made this also at another time in our little black skillet with frozen corn and it turned out pretty good.

Steak rub
3 teaspoons of salt
4 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (start out with 1/2 if you are scared of this one and then adjust)
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
Mix all together and rub onto steaks then cook.

Roasted corn

4 ears fresh corn (we did use frozen and only needed half of this)
1 Tablespoon of mayonnaise per ear.
1/2 cup queso fresco (can use feta or Monterrey jack) we have not tried with the jack
2 teaspoons chili powder
salt and pepper
2 Tablespoons lime juice. we just cut a wedge and squeezed it over the corn
roast corn in oven or on grill
mix chili powder,salt and pepper
coat in mayo then coat in cheese and sprinkle with the chili powder and sprinkle lime juice on.
(to use in black skillet we added the mayo to corn then cooked with chili powder,salt and pepper and cheese on top and added lime juice just before serving. We don't have a picture of that one as we took it to the jam that night.
