Easy Instant Pot Corn On The Cob

Instant Pot Corn on the Cob is truly one of the easiest ways to make corn, no more waiting by the stove for the corn to boil, no more checking on it. The pressure cooker does all the work for you, it’s so easy, you add the corn to the pot and cook on High Pressure for 2 minutes.

It cooks the corn to perfection, sweet, juicy, with just the right amount of chewiness. I am making corn on the cob almost every day now because it’s so easy to prepare. I love making some for him to enjoy on the side with his dinner.

The adults in the house love their corn Mexican Street style, which means smothered in a delicious mix of mayo, sour cream, and cheese. Dust of paprika, extra cheese, and lime on the side, you will lick your fingers clean. If you have a cast-iron grill pan, you can slightly grill the corn on it after pressure cooking, just to give it that charcoal look and grilled flavor.

With all these instant pot recipes I keep seeing, I'm wondering what it can't cook! Summer is made for corn on the cob :)



I don't have an instant pot, but I always see great recipes specifically for instant pots. I like my crockpot:)

I love Mexican Street Corn. We usually grill the corn, but I want to use my Instant Pot and make it your way. Looking at the pics are making me hungry.

I love Corn on the Cob, and I have an Instant Pot we haven't ever used so I may surprise my son and make this Corn for him as he hasn't ever had Corn on the Cob freshly made at home. Even though I grew up on Corn on the Cob, we shucked and cooked.
