Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob

Once your pressure cooker comes up to pressure, it only takes minutes for the corn to cook.

Corn on the Cob in a Pressure Cooker

Using a pressure cooker to cook your corn on the cob is so easy…

  • dump in your water
  • add your trivet or aluminum foil balls
  • place in your shucked corn on the cob
  • secure lid and make sure valve is close
  • set time for 3 minutes
  • quick release after cooking has finished

I love that the corn on the cob is steamed, not boiled in a pot of water.

Corn on the Cob Compound Butter

Now I’m a huge fan of just butter and salt and pepper on my corn, but this compound butter is also a delicious option.

Ingredients for Compound Butter

Compound Butter Ingredients

  • softened butter
  • minced garlic
  • paprika
  • parsley

This compound butter is super easy to assemble, but you will need at least 1 hour in the freezer to let it firm up.

Compound butter mixed

I find using a hand mixer to cream it all together is the easiest way. Then you just need to place it in wax paper or parchment paper, creating a log and freeze until you’re ready to serve.
