Making Instant Pot Corn on the Cob
Pour 1 cup of water into your Instant Pot liner.
Place a steamer basket in your pot and stack the corn inside the basket.
Set your Instant Pot to manual (or Pressure Cook in newer models) high pressure for 2 minutes. We like our corn on the cob to be slightly crunchy. If you like it softer, you can do 3 minutes. Once the Instant Pot finishes cooking, you will do a quick pressure release (QPR).
Enjoy Perfectly Sweet and Tender Crisp Corn
Once the pin drops, open your pot. Perfect corn on the cob!
At our house, we love to top our corn on the cob with Mantequilla Rala. If you don’t know what that is, they sell a pretty authentic one at HEB, and it looks like this. Make sure you buy the one with the blue top!
