  • Place the lid and seal the vent closed. Use the Steam setting and set it to 22 minutes. Allow 12-15 minutes for pressure to build up. Once the timer is done, quick release the vent and then remove the lid.
  • Add sour cream to the pot. Use a potato masher to mash all of the potatoes in with the sour cream. If too thick, add 1-2 tablespoons of milk at a time until reaching desired consistency.
