Buttered Instant Pot Corn on the Cob Recipe

While corn on the cob may seem like a simple side dish, there are some easy ways to take it over the top into buttery-flavorville.

Of course, you can just slather your boiled corn with butter after cooking, but with kids (and holiday clothing) that can just be way too messy. By cooking the buttery taste right into the corn, you can skip the overzealous buttering of the corn at the dinner table and the inevitable globs of butter all over your tablecloth that seem to accompany it.

Plus, preparing corn this way makes it perfect for meal prepping or taking as leftovers for lunches, since you don’t have to worry about adding butter or extra flavor at work or school (which again, is messy and who wants to pack butter packets for lunch?)

Using your Instant Pot also helps prevent under- or overcooking your corn, which can lead to a bitter taste.

Corn is often overlooked when we’re talking about healthy vegetables, but it is actually a great source of fibre – and surprisingly, protein.
