Pressure Cooker Orange-Maple Sweet Potatoes
Combining cornstarch and cold water is called making a slurry. It is used to thicken a sauce. It is important to make the slurry with cold liquid, and then add the slurry to the warm simmering sauce.

Jessica Scott says:
My husband looked at me crazy when I used orange juice for these sweet potatoes, but then he tried it and now he is obsessed. This is such an easy dish and the citrus glaze sauce is phenomenal. The natural maple syrup is perfect as a natural sweetener, without having to add refined sugar. Love this recipe!
Erin Hudson says:
Amazing dish. I threw in 2 tsp of brown sugar to sweeten it up a bit and instead of bacon I used some thick cut pancetta from our local butcher shop. The saltiness from the pork helped balance out the sweetness of the dish.
Teddy Sibert says:
When I think of maple, orange, and bacon I automatically think breakfast, but this dish actually worked perfectly for dinner. I paired it with a pork chop, and the sweet and salty combination was terrific. Also incredibly simple to make in my Multipot.
