Since today is #NationalCornOnTheCobDay (you know I love my food holidays) I wanted to share a delicious recipe for pressure cooker corn on the cob with Old Bay seasoning. If you’ve never made corn in your Instant Pot, you need to give it a try. Corn cooked in your pressure cooker comes out crisp and naturally sweet and buttery since none of the natural flavor is boiled off or lost in escaping steam. This recipe for Old Bay corn on the cob gives you that flavor of a low country boil but with very little effort. You can also follow the instructions (minus the Old Bay seasoning) for making basic Instant Pot corn on cob. The recipe is written for 4 ears of corn in the pressure cooker, but you can cook from 1 to 12 cobs at the same time with the same instructions, depending on the size of your pressure cooker pot and how you arrange the corn. I developed this Old Bay seasoning corn on the cob recipe as part of the Allrecipes Allstars Tastemakers program. You can rate, review, and photograph my recipe for Instant Pot Old Bay Corn on the Cob on Allrecipes here.
