Instant Pot Creamed Corn is a simple and tasty meal that takes only 10 minutes to prepare in the pressure cooker. Cream corn that is creamy, buttery, and cheesy, and that you want to eat every day!
Cooking from scratch yields the best-tasting creamed corn, a classic side dish loved by many. This Instant Pot Creamed Corn recipe is perfect for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, which is just a few days away.
Because cooking for Thanksgiving may be pretty stressful, use the Instant Pot to save time and multitask while preparing the meal.
My dish is really delectable; it’s creamy, buttery, and cheesy to the extreme. Adding a few diced red bell peppers to my creamed corn gives it a hint of southern taste (as well as color), which I find to be quite pleasing.
HOW TO MAKE CREAMED CORN
Because this recipe is so adaptable, you can make it in a skillet on the stovetop or an Instant Pot, depending on your preference. With simple ingredients, the cooking technique is the same as before:
- Heavy whipping cream
- Parmesan cheese
- Full milk
- Frozen corn or fresh corn
- Diced red bell peppers
FROZEN CORN VS. FRESH CORN
Because fresh corn isn’t in season right now, I substituted frozen corn in this creamed corn dish.
You should use fresh corn if you can because it has an incredible sweetness. Just a tad longer cooking time is needed for frozen corn.
HOW CAN YOU MAKE CREAMED CORN FROM FRESH CORN?
With your hands, remove the ear of corn’s husks and silks. Using your hands, remove any residual silk.
To remove the kernels, use a paring knife. Cut around two-thirds of the kernel’s depth, starting at the top and working your way down.
In many recipes for creamed corn, all-purpose flour is used in conjunction with cream cheese. I don’t use all-purpose flour for anything other than baking at all. It doesn’t seem appropriate for use in cooking.
I used heavy whipping cream, whole milk, and Parmesan cheese to achieve a creamy flavor.
You won’t be disappointed with this creamed corn dish. You must give it a go!
