Ingredients for Corn on the Cob

This dish requires very few ingredients.

  • Corn on the cob
  • Water

Instructions for Corn on the Cob in the Instant Pot

1. Add the corn and water to the instant pot.

2. Secure the lid and set the valve to seal.

3. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes.

4. When the timer beeps, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then quickly release any remaining pressure.

5. Carefully remove the lid and corn from the pot. Serve immediately with butter and salt, if desired.

The most important thing is that you choose great corn. You want to find corn that is firm and fresh, with no kernels that are shriveled or dark. To check if the corn is ready, you can peel back a little bit of its husk at the top and see if there are mostly bare or dry-looking kernels. If so it’s best to pick another cob because this means they’re too old! Be sure before putting all pieces into your Instant Pot though as shucking them will remove any silk which may make the cooking process easier later on down range.
