Instant Pot Corn on the Cob a flavor bomb! Best corn for 4th of July. The longer it sits in the buttery, milky, yummy goodness, the better!
No longer do you have to stand over a stove, waiting for water to boil.
Just pop these babies into your Pressure Cooker and in a few minutes, you have nice and hot buttery Corn on the Cob.
For an incredible treat to your mouth, you have got to try my Mexican Corn on the Cob Street Food (Elote) recipe which is made on the charcoal grill. Additionally, if you want to use your air fryer, oven or Mealthy Crisplid (this accessory turns your Instant Pot into an air fryer!!!!!), try this Elote, Corn on the Cob recipe instead.
After one bite of my Pressure Cooker Corn on the cob, you will never go back to plain corn on the cob again!
Cast of Ingredients for Instant Pot Corn on the Cob
The corn will bathe in the flavored liquid and the longer you let it sit in all the deliciousness, the better!
If you want to make more corn, just double or triple the recipe. It’s not a problem at all.
Instant Pot Corn on the Cob made in this delicious liquid is a thing of beauty.
For larger batches of corn, just add more of the liquid ingredients.
Let the corn stay in the pot on Keep Warm and turn and rotate the ears, so that all ears are nicely bathed!
Will Milk Curdle?
- Try using whole milk or heavy cream to avoid curdling.
If you want to let the corn hang out in the liquid, it’s not a problem. More flavor infusion!!!!!
Of course, you can always just cook plain corn on the cob with just water.
But, that would be boring.
I’ll still tell ya how to do it on the recipe card below.
Don’t forget, you can use fresh or frozen corn!
