How Long to Cook Corn on the Cob
It usually takes 10 to 20 minutes to cook an ear of corn, depending on how you go about cooking it.
One of the most common ways to cook corn on the cob is to boil it. It only takes about 10 minutes to boil an ear of corn, but you don't always get the most flavorful results. However, when you add milk, butter, and sugar to your boiled corn recipe, you'll get corn that's buttery and sweet every time!
You can also grill ears of corn, which gives them a deep, slightly smoky flavor. Our favorite grilled corn recipe takes 15 to 20 minutes to make: Just shuck your corn, coat it with olive oil, and grill it over medium to medium-high heat, turning it every few minutes so it cooks evenly.
