Sweet potatoes are sweet and tasty. They fulfill your hunger pangs and gives you energy for the rest of you day.

This recipe is very simple to make and you can use it as a side dish for any beef steak or chicken dish you made.

Do I need to use a trivet or a steaming basket?

I’m using a steamer basket for this recipe. You can make it without it, but with a trivet or a steamer basket that fits your Instant Pot the taste would be much better.

Can I use bigger pieces?

Yes. Just increase the cooking time to 5-6 minutes.

Can I use full size sweet potatoes?

Yes. Just increase the cooking time to 15 minutes. In this case you don’t need to use a trivet and you an place them on the bottom of the Instant Pot and use it as a steamer.
