Can I make the recipe without a steamer basket?
Yes you can.
I'm using a steamer basket for this sweet potato recipe but you can just place the cubes on the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Please note that with a trivet or a steamer basket that fits your Instant Pot the taste would be much better and the sweet potatoes won't be soggy.
Can I use bigger pieces?
Yes. You can make bigger cubes of sweet potatoes and you can even use slices instead - It's up to you.
If you are using bigger pieces, increase the cooking time to 5 minutes.
