Quick and easy Instant Pot corn on the cob. Try cooking corn on the cob in a pressure cooker and you will never cook it over the stovetop again! This corn makes a wonderful side dish to accompany any meal.
I absolutely love corn! Corn on the cob with melted butter, parmesan, chilli powder, salt, and cilantro is probably my favorite combination. But I also really like simple and plain corn on the cob with a little bit of butter and a sprinkle of salt.
Ever since I got my Instant Pot last summer, I never boiled corn on the cob over the stovetop again! Or cooked chickpeas for hummus the way that I always did, I almost cook everything in my Instant Pot.
Steaming vegetables in the Instant Pot is so easy and quick. I cook all kinds of vegetables in my IP including potatoes, beets and even legumes like chickpeas and lentils. It just makes life so easy, and I love dumping everything in my IP while I get busy doing other things.
Corn is one of these things that I really like, but never have the patience to cook in the oven or over the stovetop as it means a lot of waiting time, and having to check on it every few minutes to see if it’s ready. I mean, I used to cook corn on the cob quite often but ever since I got my Instant Pot, corn on the cob appears on the menu at least once a week!
Cooking corn on the cob in the Instant Pot just takes 2 minutes on high pressure, followed by a quick release. The corn comes out perfectly cooked, and ready to be enjoyed.
How to cook corn on the cob in the instant pot
First, add 2 cups of water to the IP pot.
Then, place the trivet in the pot and stack the corn ears over it. Add as many corn ears as you can fit or as many as you like.
Make sure that the steam release knob is sealed.
Using the manual pressure, set on high pressure for 2 minutes and leave it cook.
When the IP is done, do a quick release and your corn is now ready to be served. Serve immediately with a knob of butter and a sprinkle of salt.
