Instant Pot Corn on the Cob

Growing up in the Midwest and then relocating to New England as an adult really made me appreciate really good sweet corn. I am fairly certain during the summer as a kid we had fresh corn on the cob with dinner every night and I have a feeling we weren’t the only family in Minnesota that did.

Now that I live in New England and there isn’t a pickup truck selling corn out of the bed on every corner I really appreciate good corn when I get it.

So when I can get my hands on some good sweet corn it has to be cooked to perfection. The best way I have discovered?

You got it the Pressure Cooker!

Not only does it make the best corn it also is the easiest. Gone are the days of having to boil a huge pot of water on the stove in 90º weather making the kitchen even warmer.

Instructions

Start by adding 1 cup of water and a trivet tot he pot of a pressure cooker. Next stack the cleaned corn on top of the trivet. I have found it works best when making 2 layers of 3 ears of corn.

Now you will seal the lid, turn the steam vent to sealing, and select Steam cook. Set to 2 minutes. 

When the timer goes off after cooking quick release the steam. Once the float has dropped carefully open the lid. Serve corn on the cob immediately.
