I love throwing them into the Instant Pot and letting the magic happen!
I know I say this a lot, but This recipe for Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes really is simple! I think you’ll like them!
Here’s how we make Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes
Cut up your Sweet Potatoes, If they aren’t gigantic ones like we’ve been getting lately, you can throw them in whole, just poke a few holes in them with a fork first. (and add a couple more minutes to the time.)
place 1 cup of water in the bottom of your Instant Pot insert. use the trivet and either just throw those potatoes in there or you can put them in a handy steam basket.
Place lid and make sure it is set to SEAL. Then press pressure cook (or manual) and adjust the time to 8 minutes.

Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes in just a few minutes! A great Side Dish for any meal!
For perfectly consistently cooked Sweet Potatoes, I like to slice my them up before cooking.
(you can totally throw them in whole after poking some holes in them if you want, just add 3-5 minutes cook time depending on size)
pour 1 cup of water into the insert of your Instant Pot. Then put the trivet in.
Now either place sweet potatoes right on top of the trivet OR use a steam basket (makes it easier to take out)
place lid and check that lever is switched to seal. press Pressure Cook (or Manual) and adjust the time to 8 minutes.
Naturally Release Pressure for 5 minutes or more. Then Release remainder of pressure.
remove from the Instant Pot
Season to your liking and enjoy!
