The best way to cook Instant Pot Sweet potatoes, it's simple, quick and very easy.
Add 1 cup of water to your Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker.
Add a steamer basket that suitable for pressure cookers to the inner pot, or simply use the triver that came with your pressure cooker, and then place in two sweet potatoes.
For further cook time details for different sized potatoes see the recipe notes.
Lock the lid, turn the vent to 'sealing' and using the manual setting, adjust it to cook for 16 minutes for a medium potato at High Pressure. Refer to the chart in the post for other cook times.
At the end of the cook time, you can release the pressure quickly and then carefully remove the lid.
If the potato is not fully cooked you can either microwave it on full for about a 30 seconds to a minute and see if that is cooked enough (often it is) or you can put the lid back on and and cook for an additional 2 minutes under pressure, then release the pressure in the same way as before when the time is up.
Cook time - this will vary and depends on the thickness of the potato rather than on the weight of the potato, so I would start at 14 minutes for very skinny sweet potatoes, 16 minutes for medium, and 18 minutes for large potatoes.
Sweet Potato Toppings - we like savory toppings and I've given a full and detailed list of our favorites in the post. If you like sweet toppings then a little cinnamon and maple syrup tastes fabulous!
Reheating - I think the best and my preferred method is to use the microwave.
