Pressure Cooker Sweet Potatoes

I often find myself in need of something super simple and quick for dinner. Especially when it comes to side dishes. Well, I’ve finally jotted down my go-to recipe for delicious pressure cooker sweet potatoes!

I’ve cooked these potatoes more times than I can count, but I’ve never actually taken into account how much of anything I was adding. I guess I get that from my mom. But my wife has changed me! She wants me to be able to recreate dishes time-after-time. So, for that reason, I have begun the process of documenting measurements in food – particularly the less sexy side dishes that we eat on a regular basis.
