Instant Pot Sweet Potatoes

  1. Clean the skins of your sweet potatoes and place to the side.
  2. Place steamer rack/basket (the one that comes with your instant pot) in the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. Add your sweet potatoes to the top of the steamer rack.
  3. Cover and place vent or valve on lid to “sealed”.
  4. Use the manual mode on the Instant Pot and set to pressure cook on high for 18 minutes. (cooked 5 potatoes and they were medium sized)
  5. Allow pressure to release naturally. This process will usually take around 10 minutes.
  6. Once pressure is released, go ahead and open lid and remove potatoes.

Fajita Steak and Peppers

  1. Thinly slice your skirt or flank steak.
  2. Add your steak to a hot skillet with olive oil, and fajita seasoning (2 tbsp) along with your bag of mixed peppers and onions (I use 1 bag of the PicSweet brand from Walmart)
  3. Cook until steak, peppers and onions are at desired doneness.
