Instant Pot Corn on the Cob

Looking for a side dish for a BBQ or grilling at your campsite? Nothing says summer like Corn on the Cob, It makes visions of watermelon, fireworks, lake swimming and camping come to mind!


My family loves Corn on the Cob. Mostly we smoother it in butter or sprinkle on some Tony’s Creole. Corn on the cob goes great with just about any main dish… Chicken, Hamburgers or as we did last night, with some juicy steaks and baked potatoes.

While at our campsites, I make a lot of our side dishes in the Instant Pot while the meat cooks on the grill. Here is how I make Corn on the Cob in my Instant Pot:
