Instant Pot Corn on the Cob

No need to heat up a big pot of water -- and your kitchen in the process -- just to enjoy some fresh summer corn. Cooking corn in a pressure cooker with minimal water allows the flavor to shine through, and it couldn't be easier. Serve simply with butter, salt and pepper.

Ingredients

8 ears corn, shucked and broken in half

Directions

Special equipment:
a 6- to 8-quart Instant Pot®
  1. Add 1 1/2 cups water to a 6-quart Instant Pot® and add the rack. Stand the corn on the rack, broken ends down (the corn will fit snugly). Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook on high for 4 minutes (see Cook's Note).
  2. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete. Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid.

Cook’s Note

Settings may vary on your Instant Pot® depending on the model. Please refer to the manufacturer's guide.
