Instant Pot Garlic Parmesan Corn on the Cob Recipe – the best and the fastest method to cook corn on the cob. Brushed with garlic Parmesan butter, this corn on the cob is the perfect summer side dish!
I am double excited to share today’s recipe with you. First, because I can talk again about my obsession with the Instant Pot and second, because I now have the best and the fastest method to cook corn on the cob this summer. We live in Kansas and corn on the cob is pretty much a must for all weekend dinners, especially when BBQ or grilling is involved. Cooking it in the Instant Pot is completely hands off, as all I have to do is place the corn in my Instant Pot and set it for… wait for it… 2 minutes! It comes our perfectly done and ready to be brushed with flavor butters!
I told you I am obsessed with my Instant Pot!
The first time I made this recipe, I couldn’t believe how fast the corn cooked and how perfect it was! My Hubby agrees! No more boiling on the stove in the largest pot I have, no tricks with coolers and hot water and waiting and waiting. Just set it and let the Instant Pot work.
I know steaming is the best way to cook vegetables because none of the nutrients escape to the water so I am super excited to have the Instant Pot and to be able to steam veggies in just minutes. After 2 minutes, the corn is soft yet has a bite. You can cut it off the cob without a mess (after it cools) and use in salads or soups. Perfect! You can go for 3 minutes for a softer texture but I highly recommend trying 2 minutes first. The garlic Parmesan butter is my favorite flavor combo and it goes perfectly with corn on the cob. You can always play with creating lots of different butters for this recipe.
