These Instant Pot Sloppy Joe Stuffed Sweet Potatoes have quickly become a weekly staple in our home. They are a healthy, delicious and family-friendly meal that take no time at all thanks to the IP! This paleo and Whole30 dinner is sure to be a hit in your home too.
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!
