Slow Cooker Corn on the Cob

Sweet Corn.
Slow Cooker.


I’ve been seeing a few recipes floating around the Internet for cooking sweet corn in the slow cooker.  The first step called for wrapping the husked cobs in aluminum foil…..

I was intrigued.

But Lazy….

My initial thought was: Hmmm…messing around with aluminum foil sounds like work; and if you haven’t noticed lately, I love my food to have that down home cookin’ flavor, but without the fuss.

Work SMARTER, not HARDER,  girlfriend.

It’s my new motto.


So I came up with the idea to nix the foil.

I basically slathered  (my manly man loathes that word, slathered) the husked cobs with butter, added a little water to the bottom of my slow cooker and tossed in the corn.  The cobs cooked on low for approx. 3 hours.  I think they would have been fine steaming away even longer.  The “keep warm” setting would also work great while serving this at a potluck.

Well, there you have it.
Super sweet & juicy corn on the cob;

Minus the tedious aluminum foil
and the bubbling vat of boiling water.
