A no mess, no fuss way to cook fresh corn. Our Instant Pot corn on the cob recipe shows you how to make corn in your pressure cooker in 15 minutes or less.
Summer grilling season is in full effect and I couldn’t be happier! This is one of my favorite times of the year because, I get to fire up the grill and spend my day outside with smoke and meat. With that being said, it can get hectic trying to balance grilling the main course outside and making side dishes in the kitchen.
Well, Kim came up with a great solution for my corn conundrum. Her Instant Pot corn on the cob solves the issue of running back and forth between the coals and the stove top.
Best of all, this recipe can be done when the meat is almost finished. By the time it gets done resting, we have hot, fresh corn on the cob. Shall I share this simple recipe with you? I think I shall, let’s get cooking.
Instant Pot Corn on the Cob Instructions:
Alright, so this is an extremely simple recipe. It’s dump and go. To get started, remove the husks and all the silk from each ear of corn.
After that, go ahead and rinse the ears under cold tap water to remove any potential dirt or contaminants. Oh, if you’re using frozen corn, disregard these steps.
Next, grab your pressure cooker and add the water and the trivet to the bottom of the liner. Then, start stacking the corn.
Now, if you look at the photo below, you’ll see we stacked them horizontally. You may want to stack them vertically, depending on the size of the ears and the amount of Instant Pot corn your cooking. As long as you don’t go above the, “max fill,” line, you should be okay.
Afterward, seal the machine and press the manual (or pressure cook) button and set it for a three (3) minute cook time. Once the timer goes off, carefully, release the remaining steam, and open the machine.
That’s it, your Instant Pot corn on the cob recipe is done! All you need to do is serve it with whatever toppings you desire. Kim and I hope you enjoyed the recipe and wish you all the best 🙂
Instant Pot Corn on the Cob Tips:
The suggested cook time of three (3) minutes will leave the corn kernels slightly firm. If you have trouble chewing (dental pain, dentures, etc.) then you may want to soften the kernels. I would recommend increasing the cook time to five (5) or even six (6) minutes. That way, the texture will be similar to canned corn.
It should be noted that you can cook more than four (4) ears of corn. In fact, as long as you don’t go passed the, “max fill,” line, go crazy. Cook as many (or as few) ears of corn as you want.
We chose to use unsalted butter as our topping. However, there are a lot of different ways to flavor or season your version of this recipe. For example, you can use grated Parmesan cheese, chili powder, salt, pepper, ranch seasoning, etc. The point is, there are no limits to what you can create will a little ingenuity and a quick search on the internet.
