Instant Pot Corn on the Cob

Since purchasing an Instant Pot, I have been experimenting with so many new recipes. If you are unfamiliar with what an Instant Pot is, be sure to see my What’s an Instant Pot post I shared with you here. I love how quickly I can make our dinners with it. So much quicker than our slow cooker.

I crave corn on the cob so often during the summer months. My whole entire family loves it too! It’s the perfect side dish for just about any meal. We enjoy it with burgers, dogs, chicken, and especially when we are making ribs.

To be totally honest, corn on the cob has always been a treat for my family. I seriously despised having to get out my large stock pot, boil water, and allow the corn on the cob to cook for what seemed like forever. Not with the Instant Pot. I can now make the corn on the cob so much quicker with no large pans and water to boil. Plus.. the flavor is so much better.

Many recipe creators state that Instant Pot corn on the cob can be ready in 2-3 minutes. I found that to not be the case. The Instant Pot needs to have to come to pressure, then cook for 6 minutes, and then finally, I think the pressure needs to be naturally released to finish cooking. So in all actual reality, it is closer to a half hour from start to finish.

So it really does take just about as long as cooking the Corn on the Cob in the Instant Pot as it does boiling traditionally on the stove.  But… the flavor when the corn is cooked in the Instant Pot is off the charts AMAZING! The butter, milk, and bit of sweetness from the sugar really get absorbed into the corn. Plus… no large stockpot to dig out and cleanup afterwards.

I lather on some extra butter because there is something about rolling that ear around in some deliciousness. Extra butter is not needed unless you are a crazy butter fan like I am, lol.

INGREDIENTS
5+ ears of Corn, shucked
1/2 cup Milk

  1. It’s corn season here in our neck of the woods. I usually prepare corn on the cob in the microwave as I do not have an IP. Have you tried making them in the microwave?
    Thank you for sharing your links with us at #272 SSPS Linky. See you again next week.

  2. 5 stars
    Love this recipe! I am thinking of making a larger batch of corn and keeping it all on warm in my crockpot (I need my Instant Pot freed up to make ribs). Does anyone see any problem keeping the corn, in the liquid, in the crockpot for a few hours? I don’t want it to toughen up or go soggy. Thanks!

  3. I haven’t tried this yet, but my grandmother always cooked her corn with milk and a little sugar. So I am going to try this and see how close to grandma’s corn does it comes!

  4. We made this corn by the recipe you gave and it was DELISH!
    Thank you so much. Can’t wait to do it again. It was cooked perfectly.

  5. I’m not sure where you are from and do appreciate you blogging, but just looking at your corn, the kernels should be plump, full of juice. When they are saggy, you have lost the tenderness of the sweet corn. Good Sweetcorn never should be boiled longer than 8 min on the stove and taken out of boiling water, so thinking 6 min plus preheating would really over cook your corn. I believe I will try, minus the salt, but at a shorter duration. I really love my sweetcorn and hate to see everyone over cook theirs all the time and say it taste so good. Get some Pearl and White from IL and you will taste the good stuff!

    1. I just cooked 4 ears of sweet corn in mu 3 qt IP. I cooked it for 4 min and released pressure after 12 min. It was not soft enough to eat. So I cooked it for 4 more min, QR, still not done. So, I cooked it for another 3 min. Still pretty hard but soft enough to eat, but not soft as I like it. So later I cooked it for another 3 min and went to bed. 4 or 6 min wouldn’t be anywhere near done enough for me. When I boil it on the stovetop I usually boil it for ten minutes or so, turn the burner off, and leave the extra ears in the hot water to stay hot for extra servings. Everybody’s taster is different, but that is how I like my corn

  6. I made this recipe a few nights ago, followed the directions exactly and they turned out amazing! My husband and I loved them.
    If I wanted to double the amount of corn, do I need to double the rest of the ingredients or is 1 cup of water still plenty? Thank you!
