Corn on the cob , Pressure Cooker style

I love corn.  I love corn on the cob.  I like it microwaved, super fast and easy.  I like it roasted, 350 for 30 minutes and it's always perfect.  I bought corn yesterday and thought I would roast it, then I looked across the room and there, shiny and beautiful, my pressure cooker called over to me... HEY, try ME!

I have cooked vegetables in the pressure cooker before, every time they are perfect and richly flavored.  I figured why not try a cob or two.  Hmmm, how long to cook it?  Hey, how about THREE MINUTES!  Seriously.  Like every other vegetable I have cooked in my Nesco Pressure Cooker, with the exception of potatoes, corn on the cob takes three minutes.  Just like the broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and onions.  THREE.  Oh and I am calling it a recipe?  YOU BET!  Am I taking credit?  SURE, why not.

Here we go, don't blink:



Butter, lots and lots of butter for slathering after the fact
trim the kernels off the cob and toss them with a suspicion of chili powder (it's my new catch phrase that means just a little bit HAHAHA) some finely grated Parmesan cheese and a little mayonnaise just to moisten.  Seriously, addictive!  I did this with the second cob and completely forgot to take any pictures as I simply inhaled it.

But, as part of the experiment, I did take pictures, *just to be ridiculous* here's the play by play!!

Put about a cup and a half of water in the pressure cooker, add the trivet and 2 - 4 shucked pieces of corn.  LOCK and load for 3 minutes on high
Find an oval dish and place within it sufficient butter to coat, excessively, your cobs.  
DING!  Open the cooker, fast release and LOOK!  It's PERFECT!  The cobs are dark and luscious and juicy looking and cooked perfectly.  Tender and crisp.  
Roll said cobs in the butter and salt heavily. Roll, eat, roll, eat. 
The kernels are plump and succulent, and tender and delicious.
Ridiculous, 3 minutes to perfect corn...
I think I'll make more, just for science of course.
