Sautéed Corn

Sharing is caring!

Corn saute

Sautéing will keep the crispness and flavor of fresh vegetables intact. Sautéing is a technique very similar to Chinese stir-frying.

Fresh vegetables that lend themselves to sautéing include mushrooms, thinly slice carrots, zucchini, onions, green peppers, and corn kernels.

Sautéed Corn


Author Steve Albert

Yield 1 serving


  • Fresh corn kernels: 1 cup (237ml)
  • To each cup of corn kernels add the proportion of the ingredients as given:
  • ½ cup (118ml) cream
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5ml) sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt and pepper mix


  1. Husk corn; drop whole ears into boiling water. Let come to a boil again and cook for 4-5 minutes. Cool immediately by submerging ears in cold water.
  2. When cold, cut kernels from the cob by splitting down the center of each row, then cutting and scraping from the cob. Measure cut-off kernels.
  3. To each cup of corn kernels add the proportion of other ingredients as given. Mix all well together, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer until thick (takes a few minutes), stirring constantly to prevent burning or sticking.
