Simplify your corn cooking and make my Instant Pot Corn on the Cob made in just 10 minutes and cooked to perfection EVERY time!
You guys–I went on a kid free vacation with my husband to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary (a few weeks early), earlier this month. We stayed 4 nights and 5 days at The Rockhouse Resort & Spa. To say it was amazing is an understatement. Then I got home and was really depressed. I’ve never been so depressed coming home from a vacation. We had the most amazing trip and I hadn’t felt like my old self in 4+ years. I love being a mom, but I didn’t realize how much I had missed ME! I’m sure many can relate–when I wrote about this on my personal Facebook account I had so many friends relating to the same exact feelings I felt while on vacation with my hubby. Man did it feel amazing. Hence, why I’ve taken almost the entire month of June off from blogging. It sounds bad… but I’ve just been surviving and getting back to reality with my family. Since being back its given me more time to reflect on whats important in my life and has sparked some new and simple summertime recipe ideas. If you’ve been following along on Katie’s Cucina you know that I LOVE my Instant Pot. I’m constantly trying new ways to cook food and today I’m going to share with you how to cook corn on the cob in it! I actually wrote this recipe before I left for Jamaica. I’ve been cooking with this method for a while now and so happy to share. So a month break + awesome Instant Pot recipe = perfect simple and easy recipe for any home cook to make!
I love cooking vegetable side dishes in my Instant Pot. I haven’t shared many side dish recipes, but plan to throughout the next few months. The nice thing about using your Instant Pot for side dishes is that they are typically done in minutes. I have cooked the corn with both husk on and husk off. I’ll be honest–I didn’t see any difference other then it’s a smidge easier to clean the corn and remove the husk and hairs when they are already cooked! You can enjoy the corn hot out of the Instant Pot or top it with butter, fresh herbs, or even bacon. The sky is the limit as far as the toppings you can select for your corn! So if you own an Instant Pot and have yet to try and cook your corn on the cob in it–the time has come to conquer and master this super simple technique!
Instant Pot Corn on the Cob
- 1 cup of water
- 4 ears corn on the cob
- Place the stainless steel steam rack in a 6 quart Instant Pot. Pour 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot, then place the four ears of corn on the cob (*husk on or off) on the rack.
- Close the lid and seal the pressure valve to closed. Cook at Manual High Pressure for 3 minutes. Once the corn is done cooking and the Instant Pot starts to beep, carefully do a quick release on the pressure valve. Open the lid carefully, and remove the corn. Serve immediately with toppings of choice.
