  • Instant Pot
  • Serving Spoon


  • 2 medium sweet potatoes cut into bite sized pieces
  • 12 ounces frozen green beans
  • 1 pound smoked sausage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth


  • Turn 6 quart Instant Pot on saute setting.  Add oil.  While pot is warming, cut sausage in half lengthwise and then cut into largest sections that will fit in the Instant Pot.
  • Saute sausage until lightly browned.  Remove and set on plate.
  • Add chicken broth, cut potatoes and green beans to Instant Pot.  Seal and pressure cook for two minutes.  When the timer sounds perform a quick release to remove all pressure.
  • Add sausage to pot and serve warm


  • Browning sausage is optional, but browning does add flavor.
  • Any kind of liquid will work, but chicken broth adds the most flavor to the potatoes.
  • Cut potatoes into bite-size pieces so they can cook in 2 minutes
  • Use only frozen green beans, avoid canned beans because Instant Pot will obliterate them.
  • We like Italian cut green beans because they are bigger, so they can cook together with the potatoes.
  • All cooking appliances and conditions are different, so you should test these times and guidelines first in your own appliance to determine what adjustments may be needed!
