Instant Pot Corn On The Cob

So here is another super simple recipe for your Instant Pot.

And believe me, just like the hard boiled eggs, after you first make corn on the cob in your Instant Pot, you won’t be able to make it any other way.

How many ears can I make at once?

I’m making 3-4 corns every time in my 6-quart Instant Pot.

If you have 8-quart pressure cooker, you can add some more. Anyway, since it’s very quick anyway, I can make it in 2 batches in no time.

How long should I cook it?

1-4 minutes, depending how do you like your corn. The longer you cook – the softer it will be. I found that my sweet spot (pun intended) is 2 minutes.

What toppings can I add?

I like the natural taste, but there are plenty of options to diversify this dish: Feta cheese, parmesan, sweet butter, harissa, tabasco sauce and more.

How can I make it vegan?

Well… don’t add the butter.

Do I have to use a trivet?

Yes. But you can use the metal one that comes with the Instant Pot, so you are set up. Feel free to use any rack or Instant Pot trivet you have.

  1. YES, YES, YES…..Corn on the cob in the Instant Pot! Before, the corn results would vary and not always pleasantly! In the Instant Pot, its GOOD each and every time! Like you said, Corrie, I’ll never go back to boiling it.
