The first step in this recipe is to brown the meat in the IP on saute mode. Then you simply add the rest of the ingredients to the Instant Pot and cook! So simple, but so full of those childhood flavors that you remember and love. If you want this to be a quick weeknight meal, you can prep the sweet potatoes ahead of time (this is what I do).

To keep this Whole30 compliant, I use my favorite unsweetened ketchup from Tessemae’s. It has a true ketchup flavor and work perfectly in this recipe. I have found mine at Walmart and online at Thrive Market. To add just a little sweetness (like traditional sloppy joes) I add in a few finely chopped dates. They soften up and melt right into the sauce while cooking. Once the sauce is done cooking, let it cool for a minute and then load it on those sweet potatoes!

  • Turn Instant Pot to saute mode and add in the oil. Once it is hot, add in the ground beef. Saute until mostly cooked through and add in the onions, peppers, and garlic. Saute another 2 minutes
    Then add in the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and turn to high pressure and set time for 10 minutes
    When timer goes off, do a quick release of the steam. Let mixture cool for 5 minutes and stuff into the baked sweet potatoes

Notes

I used 4 large sweet potatoes to serve six because one half is a good portion, especially for kiddos. 
If prepping ahead of time, store the potatoes and mixture separately.
