Growing up, we always boiled the corn on the cob when the grill was in use. It definitely tastes great that way, but it takes so long for water to boil – especially at the altitude we live at.

Now that I have an Instant Pot, I turn to it for making dishes that traditionally take forever to make. Since Instant Pot Artichokes come out so well, I decided to give corn on the cob a try.

The amazing thing? You can make Instant Pot Corn on the Cob in even less time than artichokes! No need to wait forever for a big pot of water to boil. No need to make sure the corn stays submerged. Just toss it in and eat in about 10 minutes.

And it comes out super tender, evenly cooked and delicious too. Next time you pick up some corn on the cob, try making it in the Instant Pot.
