Reynolds Wrap® Tip

Using Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Foil on the grill makes cooking, cleaning up and wrapping leftovers a breeze.


  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (1-pound) boneless ribeye steak (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Reynolds Wrap® Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 ears shucked corn on the cob
  • 2 tablespoon butter, melted
  • Mayonnaise to taste
  • Chili powder to taste
  • Cotija cheese to taste
  • Lime to taste


Step 1

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Step 2

Combine cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and paprika. Brush oil evenly over both sides of steak; rub spice rub evenly over both sides of steak.

Step 3

Peel and wash corn. Smear corn in butter and mayonnaise, then sprinkle with chili powder. Wrap in aluminum foil.

Step 4

Cut a piece of foil about 18 inches long. Coat foil with cooking spray, and carefully place directly on hot grill rack. Arrange steak on foil. Place wrapped corn on grill.
