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.
5+ ears of Corn, shucked

1 cup Water
4 tbsp Butter

Set time to 6 minutes, pressure to high, delay to off and keep warm to off.
It will take several minutes to reach pressure and then will cook for 6 minutes.
