How To Make Instant Pot Corn On The Cob

Now that I have started cooking corn in a pressure cooker. I will never go back to cooking it in a pot. It comes out of the pressure cooker with the best flavor and texture. I wish I would have known this cooking hack years ago.

Start by cutting the ends off of the corn and remove husk and silk from the corn. Then, add the trivet to Instant Pot or pressure cooker. Then pour in chicken broth, add ears of corn and place ¼ cup of butter on top of corn.

Fresh Corn In Pressure Cooker

Next, place the lid on your pressure cooker and lock into place. Turn pressure release valve to sealing, then select pressure cook, high pressure. Cook for 3 minutes. It will take 10-15 minutes for the pressure to build up. Before the cooking timer starts to count down. When timer runs out turn release valve to release. Wait for safety valve to drop before removing lid.

While the corn is cooking lets make the garlic butter spread. Start by adding ¼ cup softened butter, onion powder, black pepper, dried parsley and garlic into a medium bowl. Mix together until well incorporated.

Once corn is done cooking turn the valve to venting and allow the pressure to completely release. Remove cooked corn with tongs and brush garlic butter mixture on corn while it is still hot.

Salt and pepper to taste and serve while still hot. Enjoy!

How To Cook Corn On The Cob With Husk

Cooking corn in the husk adds such a great flavor. But, there is one down fall to it. To cook it fully in the husk you will need a larger 10 quart pressure cooker. Just follow the same cooking instructions that are in the recipe. When it is done cooking simply cut the stem side off and slide the corn out. This is the best way to remove all the silk.

If you only have a standard 6 quart pressure cooker. You will need to cut both ends off of the corn to get them to fit.

How To Shuck Corn

When shucking corn most people start peeling from the top. This leaves a lot of the stringy silk from the corn that can be hard to remove. I have found that if you cut 1/2 inch of from the top and base of the corn. It will slide right out from the husk. If there is any silk left on it. Run it under warm water and rub it up and down with your hands.
