A Delicious Side Dish
Corn on the cob is a fantastically delicious side dish that goes well with just about any meal, especially BBQs on hot days.
And the best part of this flavorful corn recipe is that it is so easy.
The Perfect Side Dish
My grandmother grew corn and would make the side dish often while we were there during the summertime.
But, who needs it as a side dish when you’re a kid and want it as a meal? Is there anything better than an ear of corn? Ha!
So, I have this awesome record that I set in my family As a kid, I ate 12 ears of corn in one sitting. One sitting!
Twelve regular-sized ears of corn! Yep, I love the stuff. And, I have to admit, I’m pretty proud of that unbeatable record.
Growing up, my sister and I spent a part of each summer in Tennessee on my grandparent’s farm.
From the time we were little ones, our parents would drop us off at the airport in Denver and my grandparents or aunt and uncle would pick us up at the other end in Memphis.
On the Farm
We’d drive the two hours to our grandparent’s farm out in a tiny little town in West Tennessee.
And, I was one antsy kid. I could hardly wait for home-grown corn, canned jelly and jam, and homemade chocolate pie.
Sometimes I wonder if my grandparents grew an extra row of corn knowing I would be coming for the summer. I could eat it like it was goin’ out of style.
We don’t eat fresh corn on the cob around here as much as we should these days, but this is one of the best corn on the cob recipes.

Full printable recipe with measurements and instructions listed below in the recipe card.
Corn on the Cob with Milk
Place corn to the bottom of the slow cooker.
I usually use about six to eight ears of corn for the recipe.
Add one stick of butter (cubed).
You can always add more butter if you’d like to, but I used about eight tablespoons of butter for the recipe.
Pour one can of coconut milk over the corn. Mmm…good stuff.
Pour the water into the slow cooker.
I used about seven cups of water because I have a large slow cooker. But, add enough water to cover the corn.
Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the top and replace the lid.
Set the Crock Pot on high for three hours or low for about four hours.
Once the corn is tender, grab your corn holders and eat!
How Do You Make Corn On The Cob More Tender?
- By adding a couple of ingredients such as milk, coconut milk, or butter.
- Cook the corn a few minutes longer.
I cooked my Crock Pot corn on the cob with coconut milk for about 2-1/2 hours and it came out a tad crunchy. Three hours on high is ideal for a softer bite.
Slow cooker corn is definitely the easy way and best way to make the side dish.
What Seasonings Can You Put On Corn On The Cob?
- Salt and pepper
- A combination of maple syrup and mustard
- Parmesan cheese and garlic
- Butter, parsley, and chives
- Cayenne pepper – spicy hot, but good!
- Fresh cilantro
- Curry powder
- Chili powder
