Inside: Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob
There is this local farm store that I frequent which carries fresh, local produce. One of the things I look forward to every summer is their corn on the cob. When they did a video about the upcoming corn harvest, I started dreaming about that sweet summer corn. And, I know exactly how I will cook it in order to bring out that delicious flavor.
I will be making Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob.
Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob
Using a Pressure Cooker
Sooooo, I’m not a huge fan of grilled corn. I like mine steamed with butter and salt. It’s simple and brings out the flavor. Equally important, it tastes amazing when you cook it in an Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
No more waiting for the water to boil so you can drop in your corn. No more soggy Corn on the Cob sitting in the pot. Instead, just set the Instant Pot and let it do its thing.
I’ve tested this a few times and found that the time varies slightly based on the amount of corn and its size. I like to break the corn into small cobs because they cook more consistently in the Instant Pot. I recommend putting no more than 6-8 small cobs in the Instant Pot. That way you’ll have consistent results.
Here’s the Recipe
- 3-4 Fresh Ears of Corn
- 2 C. Water
- Strip the stalk and remove the silk.
- Snap each cob in half.
- Add water to pot.
- Set steamer basket into pot.
- Place ears of corn into steamer basket.
- Lock lid in place, making sure the steam release is set to Closed.
- Set Manual Timer (High) for 2-3 minutes. (Time depends on how many ears of corn are in the pot)
- Once the timer beeps, manually release the pressure.
- Serve hot!
